Gaestehaus Sonnenbichl: Sonnenbichl: beautiful landscape, friendly host

Though we only stayed one short night at this charming place, it was a really good time and I'm pretty sure, we are going to return sometime. Our hosts were very helpful in solving any possible problems and answering all our questions about the region and everything else. (Besides, pets are also welcome.)

I would definitely recommend this place both for shorter and longer stays.

Beautiful location, great opportunity for a diversity of outdoor activities nearby, very friendly hosts

Hotel Schiffmeister: Closest hotel to Koenigsee

I'm going to describe our stay here and then let you decide if this could or would be the place for you. First, this is THE closest hotel to Lake Koenigsee--you walk right out of the doors and you are there! This makes it very convenient if you are looking to stay at the Koenigsee. When you drive to Koenigsee, you get almost to the parking lot for all of the day visitors to Koenigsee, where you normally have to pay to park. If you have a reservation for this hotel (or any other right down by the lake), just inform the gatekeeper and he'll let you pass through. You then drive down what seems to be a pedestrian street--because there are SO many people walking--until you get to the hotel. You have to stop your car in front, run inside, let them know you are there, and they will give you the key to the hotel parking which is located very nearby.

The hotel itself is beautiful from the outside--a typical Bavarian house that just looks so inviting! The rooms were "ok"--nothing spectacular, and none of our rooms had a view to the lake. We had reserved two rooms--one for four people and one for two--and the price was quite ok (100 Euros for 4 and 90 Euros for 2). However, the room for 4 had one big bed and one single bed, so it was not for four. The room for 2 had a big bed and in a separate room a fold out couch. So we thought two of us would sleep on that. Only late at night did we figure out it was impossible to sleep on that couch. When we then explained our problem to reception, they said they were sold out and could do nothing. We then showed the man from reception the couch, and then suddenly they were not sold out anymore. So he gave us yet another room which had one single bed and one fold out chair. Needless to say, one of us slept on a fold out chair.

It was not the best experience I have to say....lastly, we booked this hotel because of the picture of the rooms in their brochure, and NONE of the rooms looked like their brochure, so I am wondering where those rooms are?

I don't like to write negative reviews about hotels...and this hotel was not sooo bad...we just had a bad experience and we wouldn't stay here again. There are so many other hotels, and Berchtesgaden is so so so beautiful and worth it!The rooms we had looked NOTHING like the ones in the website either...

Haus Rupertiwinkel: Cozy and friendly

Small and inexpensive accomodation close to the train station. Breakfast incl, English speaking host.
Upon arrival you'll receive a Kurkarte which gives you a discount at selected places, amongst other things the Watzmann Therme.

Gastehaus Jermann: Berchtesgaden's Best Guest House

We have stayed here twice on past trips to Berchtesgaden. Previous to this we lived in B-gaden for nearly two years. Great hospitality, very clean, newly remodeled, spacious, quiet (yet didn't feel uncomfortable with kids), free parking and reasonably priced for a family. We stayed last time at Christmas for 70 euros for a family of four. Huge king bed with a little side room with two twin size beds. Gracious hosts with a lovely German style breakfast in the morning. The couple who own it have been in Berchtesgaden for a very long time. Quaint couple. Very close to downtown part of Berchtesgaden. Photo worthy view of the town. The rooms were as big as any German hotel I have ever stayed at. It is a Bavarian style chalet. Highly recommend it. Ask the hosts for tips about Bgaden as well. :-) They speak English quite well. We originally got recommendations from the tourist center in town but theirs were similar but much more expensive including some of the hotels listed here without nearly the charm.

Fantastic view, within walking distance of everything, lovely hosts, newly remodeled, great German breakfast (try the hot cocoa). A real piece of the Bavarian Alps. Each room has a Balcony, shower, WC. Guesthouse parking as well.

Gastehaus Stockl: In the suburbs

I paid 173.60 euros for four nights though the room rate was only just over 20 euros a night. The rest of the bill came from breakfast and a couple of dinners I had there.
The breakfast was limited but the hosts, Sissy and Klaus, made an extra effort to get me some cereal so that was a plus.
There's no lift but that's common in Europe and there's no mini bar, also a common feature in Europe.

Dinner is available but you just have to let them know in advance so they can get the ingredients in.
The internet was available but it was 1 euro for 10 minutes and you were in the room usually with Klaus on the other computer at the time. After my Fussen experience that was disappointing.
The hosts were very friendly and helpful and would go out of their way to help you. There's no expansive view from the rooms if that's what you're looking for. It's also a couple of kilometres out of Berchtesgaden but there's a bus stop nearby.
Rooms were clean and the place had a "new" feel about it.
There's no TV in your room but a community one down in the dining area.
One big plus is you can duck down any time you want to and get a cup of tea or coffee.
Overall, I liked the place.

Jugendherbergen Strub-Berchtesgaden: International Youth Hostel Berchtesgaden

This a a very good hostel with outstanding views for people travelling in groups and families. The beds are comfy and the rooms are relativly large. The bathrooms are outstanding as well with strong water pressure in the showers with hot water.

The meals are outstanding. You have to challenge yourself to go away hungry. Breakfast is served from 7:30am-8am and dinner starts at 6pm. You must bus your own table.
The staff are very helpful and more than a few speak at least some English.
The only qualm is with the distance to town. It is a 20 min. walk one way and a hike up a hill coming back. The hostel will call a cab for you if you want one. A one way ride to town or back from the train/bus station is about 5 Euros. but only takes 2-3 mins. as opposed to a 20 min. walk.
All in all, this is an outstanding hostel. Clean, friendly, and spacious. If you don't mind a little walk come on in.

Large rooms, large lockers in rooms, large showers, excellent food, dance room, laundry, vending machines, outstanding views

Mooslehen: Best location - Guesthous Mooslehen

Mooslehen three star pension, ran by Maria Hofreiter is a great option for everyone while in Berchtesgaden region. Actually the pension is in Schonau am Konigsee, but I guarantee you that's the best location, with mountains all arround.

Unique area, with great views to the mountains. The balcony surrounds three sides of the house. Morning and late in the evening, streching in a lounge chair and watching the mountains is great. Maria, the owner, is a nice woman. They also have a postcard with the pension - so nice :)

Hotel General Walker

I have no idea if this exists today as it was then, and seem to remember a few years ago that the properties used by the U.S. government were returned to the German government in this and perhaps other places as well. If anyone can confirm this, your information would be appreciated!

I'm sure, however, that this place still exists but possibly in a different capacity. I have pictures of it on slides only and can possibly add this in the future. I remember that the cost to stay there per night was only around $7... that was good since I only received a couple of hundred dollars from the army each month!

The facilities were adequate and the rooms comfortable. The restaurant in the hotel reminded me of food in the "mess hall" somehow... it was ok, but nothing special. Maybe that is partly due to being in an "army frame of mind"... not sure! Still, it was an enjoyable stay and one I remember to this day...

Campingplatz Grafenlehen: Camping near Koenigsee

I suggest this camping, because it’s very close to lake Koenigsee. Therefore if you’re fans of water it is possible to walk around the lake in the evening and to watch sun going down in mountains, and in the morning to be the first and watch the interesting objects. It is about 25 minutes walking from camping to the lake. And if you travel with car and wish to stay in the camping for longer time, therefore you can leave your car there and walk to the lake by foot. So you can save 3 Euro, which are necessary for parking place in Koenigsee.
There are opening hours in the camping, after them driving in the territory isn’t possible. So if you’re going somewhere you need to be back at time.
If you’re using toilets and showers you need special magnetic key, what is given when you registering at camping ground. And hot water is included in price.
Service was very good and at the register house were many booklets about interesting places in that region.
Person + taxes = 6,30 Euro
Car + tent = 6 Euro

There are many advantages which gives camping.
Firstly, while you eating you can watch beautiful view to mountains and of course to Eagles Nest.
Secondly, as I sad previously, it’s not far from the lake.
Thirdly, if you don’t wish to cook, that go to McDonalds which is 5 minutes from camping ground.
I had only one minus. It was hardly to get tent-pegs into the ground :)

Ederhaus: Best Place in Berchtesgaden

This is an Apartment House of exceptional quality.
Very centrally located. Literally 2 minuets from the Matktplatz.
I have been staying here since 1998
I would recommend this house to anyone on the basis of comfort, cleanliness, facilities, location and ambience.

The apartments are large and very well equiped. Nothing is left out. The style is typical Bavarian which adds to the athmosphere. The apartment I use is two roomed, consisting of a large bedroom with a double (Bavarian bed) and loads of wardrobre and drawer space. There is a very fine shower and WC and the living room is huge with a cooking area, a stuberl (dining area), a large couches and chair. Satelite TV. Finally there is a balcony with a most beautiful view

We did not book any accommodation in advance, we just went straight to the Tourist Information Centre (opposite the train station - over the bridge and just up the main road).
The friendly, efficient Tourist Information man ensured we had a local map, some ideas on where to go and most importantly a room for the next 2 nights.

The rooms were big and the breakfasts were scrumptious. The room had a balcony and the views of mountains and snow covered fields were fantastic. It worked out about £10 each a night (utter bargain).

There are loads of places to stay in Berchtesgaden, do go to the Tourist Information because the accommodation they can find are of good quality and they can ring around for you (with the added advantage of speaking German!). You can also tell them what price range suits you.

For a small number of recommended lodgings visit this website:
