Going for the summer – hiking in the Berchtesgadener Land
Berchtesgadener Land Tourismus GmbH, Berchtesgadener Land
As the snow melts, the meadows turn green and colorful flowers begin to bloom on the wayside -- and this means one thing, it is time for the new hiking season in the Berchtesgadener Land to begin. Here, we will introduce you to seven great hikes that show you the most beautiful places in the region bordering Austria. You will enjoy impressive views of the surrounding mountains, learn more about the region’s uniqueness and take a dip in one of south-east Bavaria’s refreshing lakes at the end of a long day hiking.
Many of the trails in this Collection of hikes are suitable for children, and some can even be done with a stroller. The themed trails are especially exciting and stimulating for kids. Wherelse do children have the opportunity to watch bees at work or walk through a fairytale forest? There is also an added bonus for the little ones: most walks have a swimming stop en route.
Teisendorf, Berchtesgaden, and Salzburg are good base camps from which you can explore Berchtesgadener Land. On the hikes, there are many opportunities to take a break and enjoy the local food and drinks. As most of the hikes are quite short, you do not necessarily need to carry provisions in your backpack. We recommend packing a cushion to make yourself comfortable on the beach or in the meadows. Regardless of how much you choose to pack, Berchtesgadener Land offers dreamlike scenery and heaps of enjoyment.
