Sport & activity in summer

Hiking paradise at Königssee

The Königssee, an elongated, fjord-like and emerald-green mountain lake lies at the eastern foot of the Watzmann (2713 m). Nestled between steep mountain slopes and surrounded by a breathtakingly beautiful backdrop, consisting of the impressive Watzmann and the Berchtesgaden Alps. High, wild, beautiful! High mountains, deep valleys and crystal-clear mountain rivers characterize our Berchtesgaden National Park, the protected area right on the border with Austria.

"Let nature be nature" - that's the motto in Germany's only Alpine National Park. A total of 230 kilometers of marked hiking trails lure everyone into pure hiking pleasure - at any time of the year. This is where easy, level paths for everyone meet technically demanding tours for those with sporting ambitions. The best starting point? Directly from the Almhotel Grünsteinblick!
