Bavaria's Soaring Peaks Walk

Bavaria's Soaring Peaks Walk Overview

Set amid the alpine splendour of Germany’s Berchtesgadener Land, Königssee is a jewel of a lake, and a great walking base.

  • single-centre walking holiday
  • rewarding routes through breathtaking scenery
  • high-quaility hotel and famed Bavarian hospitality
  • sail across the fjord-like Königssee
  • quick and easy access from Salzburg

Surrounded on three sides by the mighty snow-capped peaks of the Austrian Alps, Berchtesgadener Land is almost cut off from the rest of Germany – a hidden gem in the country's south-eastern corner. At its heart, the spectacular landscapes of the Berchtesgaden National Park are centred on enchanting Königssee, a fjord-like, emerald green lake that sits serenely beneath mighty Watzmann Mountain and the rocky promontory of the Eagle's Nest. This is Germany's deepest, and purest, lake, making the views here some of the most impressive in the entire country.

Situated high above the lake, the luxurious Hotel Alpenhof awaits, offering excellent Bavarian hospitality and hearty cuisine. It's the perfect base from which to explore this spectacularly beautiful region: strike out on foot to visit the Eagle's Nest (Kehlsteinhaus ), Hitler's former teahouse; or sail across the tranquil lake to the iconic pilgrims’ church of St Bartholomä to explore the Eiskapelle glacier.
