Travel Tips from people who've been to Berchtesgaden
This is a very interesting area... natural beauty and historical points of interested

If you are looking for a hotel the Hotel Zum Tuerken was a good choice. The accommodations a rather spartan and impeccable. The breakfast is good. The owner of this hotel also has part of the SS bunker system which you can visit for a nominal fee. This lady is also a wealth of local knowledge.

Don't miss the Dokumentation Centre or Koenigsee--take the boatride, it is worth it!

If you go to Berchtesgaden, you have to visit the Eagle's Nest, Hitler's favourite alpine accomodation. To arrive there you must take a lifter in the hearth of the mountain, an engineering masterpiece.
Where to eat: Berchtesgaden Hofbrauhaus on the main street. Typical bavarian dishes.
On the other side of the road a lovely place to stay at night: Landhaus Freund by Frau Anneliese Hanel (www.pension-hanel.de).

If you are at all interested in WWII history, ferret out the spot where Hitler's home stood up on the mountainside. You can tour the bunkers, but the house was blown off its foundation by U.S. troops. Don't bother asking the locals for directions: they pretend that the place does not exist. Go figure! It is fairly easy to find since the town faces toward the spot.
