At the foot of the Berchtesgaden Alps

Active summer holidays against a fantastic backdrop in the hotel

Watzmann, Jenner, Lake Königssee and more – surrounded by the idyllic backdrop of the Berchtesgaden Alps, the four-star superior Hotel EDELWEISS with its location in Berchtesgaden town centre is the ideal starting point for an active summer holiday in the region. Diverse hiking routes, varied bike tours as well as challenging climbing routes make the Berchtesgaden Alps with the Berchtesgaden National Park a highlight for nature lovers. The spacious EDELWEISS Panorama Spa above the rooftops of Berchtesgaden promises relaxation after an active day. In the hotel’s four restaurants, kitchen director Stefan Hettegger and his team take care of the physical well-being of his guests and refresh them for new adventures in the mountains.

Located in the middle of Berchtesgaden’s pedestrian zone, active holidaymakers at the Hotel EDELWEISS Berchtesgaden not only enjoy a relaxing break, but also always have the striking peaks of the Bavarian Alps and the imposing Watzmann in view. These views also await climbing enthusiasts on the numerous climbing tours and via ferrata of varying difficulty in the Berchtesgaden National Park, not far from the hotel. Experienced mountaineers will enjoy, for example, the infamous Watzmann East Face, the Göllwestwand with the large funnel, the Untersberg South or Southwest Face or the Blaueis on the Hochkalter. Those who prefer to discover the landscape firmly on both legs are in good hands on the 230 km long hiking trails, ranging from easy family tours up to challenging summit victories. The 1,874 m high Jenner, comfortably accessible with the modern Jennerbahn cable car, is the perfect starting point for hikes with a fascinating view of the heart of the Berchtesgaden National Park and the picturesque Lake Königssee. No less impressive is this lake embedded between steeply rising rock faces on a relaxed boat trip.

For those who prefer to travel on two wheels, the extensive bike tour network between Königssee, Berchtesgaden and the Rupertiwinkel offers a selection of 700 km of designated mountain bike trails for every level. For an invigorating snack, more than 40 managed alpine pastures and mountain huts are available along the tracks.

If you can’t get enough of the magnificent views, the EDELWEISS Panorama Spa awaits you after an active day outdoors with an equally spectacular 360-degree panoramic view of the Berchtesgaden mountains. Over 2,000 m², those seeking relaxation will enjoy pure regeneration with relaxing massages, sauna and steam baths, in the whirlpool and in the panoramic bath as well as with soothing treatments.

In the evening, there are four different hotel restaurants to choose from. In the PANORAMA restaurant, including the roof terrace, guests can experience top-class culinary delights and the magnificent view of the Watzmann and the previously climbed peaks. In addition, the EINKEHR restaurant spoils with Italian cuisine, the Gasthof NEUHAUS with typical Bavarian delicacies and an inviting beer garden, while the hotel restaurant pampers you with a multi-course pamper menu.
