At a height of 1,000 metres the scenery between Watzmann, Untersberg and Kehlstein, surrounded by Germany’s one and only Alpine National Park, is simply impressive. Nesting in the midst of untouched nature the InterContinental Berchtesgaden Resort sits like a horseshoe among lush mountain pastures on the eastern outskirts of Berchtesgaden, just 30 kilometres from Salzburg.

You will be intrigued by the rich local traditions of this once-remote corner of south-east Germany, and one of the best ways of experiencing them is with a boat trip over the picturesque Lake Hintersee. Complete your afternoon with a visit to a truly authentic beer garden. The Auzinger offers the best succulent roasted pork with Bavarian dumplings in the whole Berchtesgaden area. After the rich meal, take a walk in the National park, where a ranger can show you the wonderful variety of alpine plants and wildlife.

The five-star-superior hotel InterContinental Berchtesgaden Resort (today, the Kempinski Hotel Berchtesgaden) opened-up in 2005. It has 126 rooms, 12 suites, three restaurant, a wellness and spa area. Near the hotel the Golfclub Gutshof-Obersalzberg and a small ski resort are located. In 2007 a helipad for vip guests and a conference area were added.

Lake Königssee
The lake is inhabited by a wide range of freshwater fish including salmon, trout and catfish. Lake Königssee’s landmark, the chapel of St. Bartholomä, can only be reached by boat. This world-famous church, originally dating back to the 12th cent., lies at the tip of a picturesque peninsula.

Salt mine
Deep down underneath the ‘Salzberg’ mountain a secret world awaits your discovery. For many years, only the salt miners in Berchtesgaden were allowed to enter the complex tunnel system. Today, part of the mine – which has been in operation for over 500 years now – is open to all fans of adventure who wish to get to know the place where the famous Bad Reichenhall brand salt originates.

Royal Palace Berchtesgaden
Palace Berchtesgaden, after 1810 the summer residence of the Wittelsbach family, was once the center of a small spiritual state of the Augustinian Canons. In the following period, they gained the imperial immediacy and 1559 the status of a prince provost. Until 1803 the monastery was the residence of the rulers.

Mozarts birthplace
The house in which Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born on the January 27, 1756 is now one of the most frequently visited museums in the world. No other place makes the person behind the artist Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his music as palpable as his birthplace in Salzburg.
