Salzburg and Bavaria share a long history spanning countless years. The bus tour to Berchtesgaden introduces you to the most important sightseeing attractions on the other side of the border.
Bavaria, here we come!
This four-hour bus tour takes you from Salzburg City and across the border in Marktschellenberg to Bavaria. Be sure to bring along your passport, just in case we get checked at the border! The route runs alongside the banks of the picturesque Königsseeache, while views of the mighty Watzmann and Bavarian Alps will also be your constant companions during the tour.
Obersalzberg and Salt Mine
Dokumentation Obersalzberg provides information about Adolf Hitler’s former mountain retreat and about World War Two. Once merely a holiday escape for Hitler, over time it became a restricted zone for the exclusive use of the Führer, parts of which are still preserved today. Many tour operators combine a visit to this information center, or offer as an alternative, a visit to the Berchtesgaden salt mine.
Germany’s most beautiful lake
Yet another stop on this tour involves a pleasant walk along the shores of Lake Königssee – famous as “Germany’s most beautiful lake”. The title is well deserved, not least because of the often mystical moods of the water and enchanting plays of light. A true highlight of the tour!
Stroll through Berchtesgaden
A visit to the market town of Berchtesgaden, famous as a center of arts & crafts, adds the finishing touch to our bus tour. This romantic small town, with its winding lanes and elaborately painted building facades, was seemingly plucked from the pages of a picture book. Also well worth a visit: the abbey of the Augustinian Canons.
