1. From Salzburg: Berchtesgaden and Königssee

A fascinating opportunity to visit the picturesque area of Berchtesgaden in the neighbouring German province of Bavaria. Leaving Salzburg passing by Hellbrunn we cross the German border. Driving past the Salt mines our first stop will be at the King’s Lake – Königssee, known as ‘The prettiest lake in Germany’ and part of the Berchtesgaden National Park. Enjoy this short break to marvel at the scenery, the Bavarian mountains towering above you and proving a magnificent backdrop to the lake. We then drive to the town of Berchtesgaden, nestled in the foothills of the surrounding mountains. Enjoy your free time strolling around the centre, historical buildings, churches and perhaps a local speciality or two! Returning back to the centre of Salzburg in the late afternoon.
