by franmcwilliams

We will be in Germany in mid-May and would ike to go hiking in Bertchesgaden. Will it be very crowded? Is there a way to avoid the crowds, like staying somewhere else?
Thanks,

No crowds there in mid May.

It won't be crowded, but it's possible that you won't be able to do all the hikes you plan to do. In case there is still snow in the mountains, some of the higher trails can be snow covered.

What about rain? It May a rainy month for that area?

Re: crowded in mid-May?

by abalada

May is a month with medium rainfall.
The summer months (Juni - August) have roughly twice the amount of precipitation compared to the winter months (December - February). The rest is in between.
Buy you have to be prepared for the possibility of rainfall (or snowfall) any month of the year.

Ramsau

by sandysmith

Ramsau in Berchtesgadenland is such an idyllic spot - don't you think, no wonder its popular with painters. Its just a short bus ride from Berchtesgaden (bus 9546) and from here you can extend a days outing by walking through the nearby magic forest of Zauberwald and on to Hintersee. (about 1 hours walk)

Wittelsbacher-Brunnen

by globetrott

Wittelsbacher-Brunnen was first built by Churfuerst Maximilian Heinrich in 1677, it was destroyed afterwards and rebuilt again in 1860 in order to memorate the re-unification of Berchtesgaden with Bavaria. This wonderful fountain with the lion, the symbol of Bavaria is opposite of the Hirschenhaus, so you cannot miss it, while walking through the lovely city-centre of Berchtesgaden.

Kehlsteinhaus

by scottishvisitor

The Kehlsteinhaus - translated into English - Key Stone or re named in English as the Eagle's Nest holds a fascinating - if some what dark insight into the history of Word War ll. The house resembles a swiss chalet was commissioned by Martin Bormann as a gift to Adolf Hitler on the occassion of his 50th. Birthday. Built as a retreat and a place to entertain in September 1939 the house and the amazing road to it were completed in just thirteen months finishing in September 1939 . Although Eva Braun and her sister Gretl along with other high ranking party members and their families spent summer days here, Hitler him self visited only on about ten rare occassions - sometimes for as little as half an hour. Because of his lack of envolvement with the Kehisteinhaus it was saved from demolition at the end of the War. Up until 1960 the Eagle's Nest was used by the Allies as a military command post before being handed back to the state of Bavaria. Today it is not in anyway a memorial or any other tribute to Hitler but a restaurant complex managed by a charitable institution. Strange to think nothing structural has changed here in over sixty years except for the added terrace - one thing has changed here though - the number of visitors is incredible - no one told me the World and his Wife would be here too!!
