This is a very nice palace with some interesting furniture and paintings. The guide was very friendly and made the visit also worthwhile for smaller children.
This is a hugely impressive family home although it is only used for a few days each Summer. Some of the architecture dates back to the 12th century and there are many paintings from 16th century onwards as well as furniture covering several hundreds of years including several unique pieces. The architecture is varied and interesting. Visiting is via a... More
A tour through the Schloss at any time is impressive, but if you have a chance to join in one of the infrequent candle light tours do not miss it! Around Christmas and new years they give the night tours, and this year they ended up with a coral presentation in the Great Hall. It ran chills down your back!... More
Read about the tour and decided to go. No one else showed up so we got a private tour. Beautiful castle, still owned and used by the Wittelsback family, full of history and beauty. Well worth while.
The Schloss is not well sign posted and it yet a treasure with superb architecture and a very interesting collection too. I recommend it!

However, if you have a rainy afternoon in Berchtesgaden, it is still worth seeing. It has an interesting history between monastery and royal family that resided there. The inside has some areas that are truly beautiful and the... More
There's not a great deal to say about Konigliches Schloss. It doesn't particularly look like a castle, more like a residence for someone important. We stumbled upon it by accident while strolling around Berchtesgaden. The castle was formerly an Augustiner Monastery. In 1810 it became the residential castle for the Bavarian royal dynasty, but don't ask me who they are.... More
We went because they advertised English tours (we've lived in Germany 10 years, so we've seen plenty of castles), but all they had was a handout that followed along what the German guide said. However, since we were the only guests, she did her best, which was pretty good, in English, then, when others joined, she made sure we knew... More
