    Eagle Sanctuary

    eagle

    Too often people visit the Eagles Nest viewpoint and the underground bunker system without realising there is another attraction in this area. We spotted this eagle sanctuary by accident whilst waiting for the bus back to Berchtesgaden and am glad we did so. Several species of eagle and owl can be seen here and its worth a short stop.
    Entrance was free but donations welcome!

    Wimbachtal

    Walking in Wimbach

    A nice hike can be made through the Wimbachtal, reaching the gorge in 15 minute. Water gushes through the gorge which is accessed by a series of steps and walkways so the waterfalls tumbling down its steep cliffs can be enjoyed. Allow 1 hour to reach the Wimbach castle and to reach the Wimbach-Gries-Hutte in another 1.5 hours. Bear in mind that the gorge is usually only passable betwwen May-Oct. There is a small entrance fee too.

    Hintersee

    From Ramsau its a pleasant walk through the Zauberwald - the so-called Magic Forest - to the idyllic lake of Hintersee with its turquoise water. Popular with bathers in the summer months -although you'll probably share some pastures with the cows!

    The Hintersee is beautifully situated at the foot of the Hochkalter (2,608 m). Lovely reflections of the mountain here made it a popular place for painters from Vienna and Munich round 1871.

    TAKE A PLUNGE

    Swimming pool logo

    Walk off the beaten path and swim in this pool (Adults - 7.70 Euro’s for 2 hrs, 10,20 Euro’s for 4 hrs). It is soooooooo relaxing I could have stayed for days!!
    There are several thermal pools (one with a small water slide) catering for the thermal water lovers. You can also have a sauna (I think it costs extra). There are plenty of wooden recliners dotted around to relax on, but the best bit (aside from the waterslide) has to be the outside thermal pool. It is quite small but has a rotation of three water jets (lots of bubbles).

    The landscape and countryside of Berchtesgaden is so beautiful and inviting. Going hiking is fantastic and will give you an idea of just how amazing this area is.

    marmotts

    Also in the eagle sanctuary are marmotts. These alpine creatures are some of my favourite animals and it was great to get a close up view of these cuties ;-)
