  • The accommodation and quality of food was excellent for the whole trip. The booklet outlining where to go was very detailed and vital. I found it very useful. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience! Thank you for a fantastic trek. S.Nossiter NSW, Australia
Explore on foot the stunning Berchtesgaden National Park and Lake Königsee - a pristine fjord like lake. Located in a romantic, mysterious and unique region, the lake is surrounded by an imposing mountain landscape. Walking through mountain passes below high rocky summits, we discover beautiful valleys, waterfalls, gorges and rivers. En route there will be opportunities to view the numerous attractions of the region including Obersalzberg, Adolf Hitler's holiday home; the historic Austrian village of Golling; Hohenwerfen Castle, backdrop of many WWII films; and Rossfeld Road, with its stunning views of the Bavarian Alps. Our evenings are spent in superb 3 star mountain hotels where we enjoy hearty German cuisine and relax with a Bavarian beer or two.
