Once you've arrived in Berchtesgaden National Park, which covers half of the terrain Berchtesgadener Land, you have endless opportunities for hiking (e.g.along lake Obersee), nordic walking and cycling provided by a network of well-marked trails of varying difficulty.


The idyllic setting of Berchtesgaden National Park is dominated by Germany's second highest mountain the Watzman (2713m), which towers above the emerald-green lake Königssee.
Framed by steep mountain walls the lake lies like a fjord 5km south of Berchtesgaden and can only be discovered by boat. In 1978 that nature paradies became Berchtesgaden National Park and some years later it even got the title of Biosphere Reserve by Unesco.

Königssee, Berchtesgaden National Park  
One highlight in the Berchtesgaden National Park is lake Königssee
 
It's impressing to see how people in the Berchtesgaden area harmonize with nature and preserve their culture and old traditions. Typically is the alpine farming - herds spend the summer on the meadows and in September a major event is celebrated when the cattle is driven down into the valley carrying rich decorations and bells. What makes this region of Berchtesgaden National Park so appealing to tourists is that you feel the value of tradition almost everywhere. Many people wear traditional clothes like leather trousers, felt jacket and ”Gamsbart” on the hat in every day life, love Ooompah music and hold up to handcraft as they have been doing that for hundreds of years.
