Nature meets culture. Worth seeing in Upper Bavaria

There is so much to discover in the immediate vicinity of the EDELWEISS hotel and spa. Beyond Berchtesgaden's charming town centre, the idyllic beauty of the Alps won't fail to impress.

Holidaying in the Berchtesgadener Land region is good for the soul… all year round! Take in the unmistakeable Alpine views from the Eagle's Nest and listen out for the echo on Lake Königssee. Discover nature's genuine beauty in Upper Bavaria and experience things which will stay with you forever.
