getting the bus from hintersee

by chrisbeardy

does anyone know anything about the bus that goes from hintersee into the national park ( through the locked gate )up to the austrian border? how often does it go? are there walks back to the hintersee car park?
we intend to do this next time we are in Berchtesgaden in May.
cheers

Re: getting the bus from hintersee

by Turtleshell

Could it be the "Alm Erlebnis Bus"?

I found a time table here:

And some further information (in German) here:

If yes, be advised that there's no service from November to around mid May.

Travel Tips for Berchtesgaden

The Ice Chapel cometh not, just an ordinary chapel

by iandsmith

The Eiskapelle refers to an area where avalanche snow from the Watzmann's east face is partially washed out with the melt. It leaves a cave that can be extremely dangerous but is a magnet for the adventurous tourist.
It was very early spring when I tried to find it, along with another three groups who were on the trail at the same time.
The departure point is where you are dropped off at St. Bartholomew's. The bottom line is that we never found it. The good news was that the walk was well worthwhile for different reasons. First up there was this charmer called the St. John and St. Paul Chapel that dates back to 1620 and is believed to have replaced a former pagan shrine.
We then started ascending (pic 3), first through the thaw and then (pic 2) up into the snow proper.
As you move ever upward the mountains start to emerge from the foliage (pic 4) until, the magnificent spectre of one of the many faces of Watzmann (pic 5) is achieved.
This was as far as we, or any one else on the day, achieved. The snow cave remained elusive and it was pretty obvious from what we saw that you really do have to water until later in the spring or summer until the chapel is attainable as it requires the melt to have taken place before it actually happens.

Shopping Hours

by kenbac

Since July 2004, Shopping Hours in Germany are 9 am to 8 pm Monday to Friday and 9 am to 6 pm on Saturdays. This is general in the Cities but the smaller towns like Berchtesgaden still close at 6 pm on Monday to Friday and 1 pm on Saturdays.
Supermarkets will open earlier.
Sundays it's the railway station or a garage and while you can get everything there, expect to pay more.

Hirschenhaus - Kings in front & apes at the back

by globetrott

Hirschenhaus is my favorite building in the centre of Berchtesgaden, it dates back to the year 1594 and used to be the "Gasthof zum Hirschen" ! Take a look at the ornate decorations at the front-side of the building with various kings and noble people plus large columns and decorations that look like they would be 3-dimensional. "Lueftlmalerei" is the expression for that kind of painted facades that you may find in many parts of Bavaria, BUT this house is really special, because you may also see some great decorations at the backside of that same building : All of the facade on the backside is decorated with scenes, where apes are dressed like bankers, bakers etc. that was really funny to see.

Missed the Boat

by kenbac about Zum Schiffmeister

A very nice Gastatte. I got my times wrong for the boat on the Konigsee and missed the intended one. We found we had an hour to spare. This very pleasant Gastatte was close by and we were more than pleased to spend the time there. Too early for lunch so we had coffee and a beer. Just had a beer.

salzbergwerk

by doug48

the salzbergwerk (salt mine) has been in continous operation since 1517. you can take an interesting tour of the mine. you will be given a traditional miner's overcoat for protection against the cold and damp environment. you take a motorized cart down about a half a mile into depths of the mine. inside the mine you take a boat ride on a subterranean lake. the tour takes approximately 60 minutes.
