Berchtesgaden – the residence of kings
A place where nature and culture strike up a wonderful symphony. Even in bygone days, the Bavarian kings would spend their summer getaways in this peaceful Alpine setting – followed by scholars, scientists and artists. All of them valued the incredibly good, clear air, the unique healing climate and the fantastic location at the foot of the majestic Watzmann. To this day, the historic town center, with its beautiful merchants’ homes of old, invites you to take a relaxing stroll. And there is no doubt that today’s visitors also feel like royalty: with an array of first-class shops, pleasant cafés and restaurants as well as fabulous wellness temples.
