Bavarian Salzburg Alpine Pasture Trail - "From the Lake Königssee to the alpine pasture of mount Hochkönig". The blue-green shimmer of Lake Königssee offers reflections of the surrounding mountains. To see the sun rising over the steep rocks of the Stony Sea is worth the effort of getting up early. Alpine pastures nestle on the edges of the mountains as you walk from mountain hut to mountain hut with spectacular views to the Alps and glaciers. Berchtesgaden has an informative Visitor's Center where you'll find historical information about Hitler's Eagles Nest and the surrounding area.

Tour Details: If you can comfortably walk 3-6 hours a day, then this tour is for you. You'll be crossing several valleys on the former salt trail or walking over paths through beautiful alpine pastures. The trail runs close to the edge of the mountain walls, giving you breath-taking views. You will walk in low alpine meadows and a good fitness and equipment is expected. If you get tired or it is raining, simply take a public bus to get to the next town and your hotel.
