  • were completely surprised by the facilities of this castle, not only in terms of hunting trophies; highly recommended was the lead in Twilight with candle light and the additional programme (vocals, Harve game) at the advent

  • The evening tour of the Berchtesgaden Castle is a dream. You literally reverts in that time. Due to the illumination - predominantly candle light - you almost feel how people must have lived at the time. Absolutely recommended!

  • Beautiful Cathedral in style, features of Germany, both elegant and austere, inside exudes a mystical atmosphere and serene, even receives a strong scent of incense. The Church is very bright.

  • It was the time, when I regretted that I do not know German to understand the guide. Very interesting.
  • Observe opening times and learn German. English guidance by printed material only. Otherwise it is very worth a visit.
  • Very beautiful and there are attractive pictures on the buildings. We had a good lunch and there are plenty of places to choose from for eating.
  • A great place to explore in a gorgeous town. We didn't have time to go inside but it must be amazing.
  • Marvelous place! Bavarian charm!
