Berchtesgaden Travel Guide: 283 reviews and 828 photos
Berchtesgaden is a small, pretty, historic town located in Bavaria and surrounded on three sides by the Austrian border.
It is only 30kms from Salzburg, Austria.
Located in a valley,surrounded by high mountains called Untersberg in the North, Obersalzberg in the east and further south by the Watzmann, this area is known for its salt mines.
Now days, it is known for the where Adolf Hitler, had his summer getaway at Eagle's Nest.
As I wandered this delightful little Village, I wondered how many people do stop and have a look at the Village, and how many just head straight to the Eagle's Nest with out stopping.
We stopped, and I'm glad we did, as this was a really nice village.
