Alan Rogers Review
This spacious and well maintained all-year site occupies a hillside position, with spectacular mountain views. The site access road is steep in places (14%) with a sharp, steep bend about halfway up, but the proprietor will use his tractor to tow caravans if requested, especially during snowy weather. There are 130 pitches (122 for touring), all arranged on a series of level, gravel terraces, separated by hedges or fir trees and all with good views and electrical connections (16A). There is a separate area on a sloping meadow for tents. The pleasant, traditional restaurant, with terrace, offers Bavarian specialities at reasonable prices throughout the year. This is a useful base for sightseeing, relaxing or for a winter break.
Berchtesgaden is a National Park with magnificent scenery, in an area of mountains, lakes, valleys, castles and churches. The Eagle’s Nest, given to Adolph Hitler on his 50th birthday, sits on top of the nearby Kehlstein and is visible from the site. The building itself is now a restaurant but a visit to the top, via the special bus service, is strongly recommended for its magnificent views. From an historical point of view, the Visitor Centre below is more interesting and well worth a visit.
