  • There is a beautiful view of the Jenner top. It was hair dryer that day and you could see for miles in all directions.

  • I went twice the first in September, great!, the second in October four years later. Is remarkable the difference of the climate. Pass of days sunny where is can enjoy of the landscape, to another with landscape autumn and much fog that hinders the observation

  • If there is a favorite place in the world, then this is Berchtesgaden Alps here in the. The nature is a fountain of youth. I feel very comfortable here and my personal battery is recharged here nothing in no time. You can experience here so much beauty. Plants, animals and spectacular scenes. Especially now in the autumn, the Sunrise is a dream, the incidental swaths cover the nature, such as with a duvet. For those who prefer sporty like is also right in here. For young and old there is something for everyone. Hiking, climbing, cycling, hang-gliding or paragliding flying... It really is a fountain of youth for body, mind and soul!
