Berchtesgaden with the "Watzmann" - many thanks to Eric Sorenson
Berchtesgaden can be traced back over 1000 years.
The most famous mountain of the area is called the "Watzmann". It is the second highest mountain in the Bavarian Alps.
The history of this town goes back to the year 1000. Berchtesgaden and many other villages became famous because of the salt that was found there.
For more than 150 years the local salt mine has been a tourist attraction. Don't miss it. It is not only interesting it is also fun as I was told.
Elizabeth does not feel comfortable in caves. I learned this very soon so we did not go. You can find some videos on the Internet, but most of them are naturally very dark. The visit includes now also a "Light Show".
You will be asked to wear some strange outfits before you are allowed to join a tour. The kids will have certainly have a great time.
If you are interested in a work out you can do this here in Berchtesgaden. Enchanting spas called the "Kur- und Erlebnisbad" and "Watzmanntherme", tennis courts, walking trails, skiing, ice skating, mountain climbing, golfing, folks theater ("Bauerntheater") - everything is offered right here in Berchtesgaden or in the surrounding area.
Rental equipment for your sports activities is available.

Please visit also the Kehlsteinhaus, better know as the "Eagles Nest". We already pointed that out in our page for the "Berchtesgadener Land". The following images are from a visit in 2009.
The "Eagles Nest" - now a restaurant
Hikers - still snow in May
A well deserved rest
Please be aware that you are very close to the Austrian "border", and that should not miss visiting Salzburg.
To enter Austria is like traveling from one US state to another or one Canadian province to another. Also the same currency is being used the Euro (€)
