Berchtesgaden private walking tour With A Professional Guide
Why take this tour?
This quaint alpine village has seen millennia of history and was named after a pagan Goddess. From prehistory to celtic times, early medieval to the nazi rule, Berchtesgaden stayed a hotspot. As a town, it’s roots go back to 1102 AD, and it’s existence is deeply connected to the salt mines in this town that enriched the entire region, therefore passing hands from nobility and clergy until it joined Bavaria in 1810. On the foothills of the famous Watzmann mountain seen in “The Sound of Music”, it is no wonder that even the bavarian royalty chose it as one of their residences. Later on Adolf Hitler took interest as well, later building his mountain residence at Obersalzberg and making Berchtesgaden a nazi stronghold during the World War II. This tour will give all the hindsight on these and many more details, stories and less known facts about a little alpine town that once had a hand in international affairs.
