Established in 1978 to protect the Berchtesgaden Alps on the border with Austria, National Park center touts a network of trails, including one that leads pilgrims to the Church of St. Bartholomew. Six information centers in the park provide maps, instructions, event calendars, and recommendations. The town of Berchtesgaden just outside the park is populated with hotels and a large tourist center. Don't miss Lake Königsseer, with the Watzmann mastiff reflected in its clear glacial waters.
