Berchtesgaden city & region

Nature meets culture. Worth seeing in Upper Bavaria

There is so much to discover in the immediate vicinity of the EDELWEISS hotel and spa. Beyond Berchtesgaden's charming town centre, the idyllic beauty of the Alps won't fail to impress. With the fantastic views of the Watzmann, you can experience nature up close at the beautiful Lake Königssee, likewise in the middle of the Alps in the Berchtesgaden national park. Culture vultures will be enthralled by both the Obersalzberg Mountain and the city of Salzburg itself, as both are steeped in history.
Holidaying in the Berchtesgadener Land region is good for the soul… all year round! Take in the unmistakeable Alpine views from the Eagle's Nest and listen out for the echo on Lake Königssee. Discover nature's genuine beauty in Upper Bavaria and experience things which will stay with you forever.

The Berchtesgaden Alps

You'll seldom find a more beautiful view. From the EDELWEISS hotel and spa's roof garden, you will have the Berchtesgaden Alps in all their beauty right at your feet. Extensive forests and mountain pastures meet crystal clear lakes which reflect the rugged mountain rocks above in all their glory. This impressive mountain range stretches over roughly 1,000 square kilometres and is ruled majestically by the Watzmann, which stands at its centre. From golfing and hiking in summer to skiing and touring in winter, the Berchtesgadener Land region is a real dream for nature lovers, whatever the season.
