The castle is situated on a beautiful square in the center of Berchtesgaden. It doesn't look very big but inside there is a enough to see. The tour shows you a lot of rooms. Altough it seems that you do not get much time to...More

Not much to say about this beautiful church, beautifully restored and preserved, it's interiors expose some old tumbs, and ornaments that are worth see. Peaceful interior, a bit plainly decorated, but beautiful. There's an organ, so, maybe on sunday mass you maybe able to hear...More

I went on the guided tour with an English paper. So interesting! I loved seeing the setup, and knowing it is still actually in use. So impressive!

Berchtesgaden abounds with attractions. The Schloss is spectacular, but does pale by comparison with the fairytale Neuschwanstein, nonetheless is worth a visit. Typical of many things German, it is done on a grand scale. On your way to Berchtesgade, be sure to not miss the...More
