After seeing the Eagle’s Nest we decided to stop in Berchtesgaden, a famous mountain village-town located in the bavarian Alps at just 11km distance . This place really impressed us with its beauty and is definitely a site to see again. Like in every village from this area of Germany, here you can find a wonderful view of the mountains, painted houses, many places to eat and drink, shops, hotels and many other things.
You can easily spend many days here and not get bored. We only spent a few hours in Berchtesgaden, but we would gladly come back again, because you simply can’t get enough of the view and the fresh air.
