One of the nicest churches in the world
Jun 2020
Ok at least in Germany. It is free, the road leading to the church is wide, there is almost no walking required.

Superb position, elaborate interior, sheep may be just outside
Jun 2018 • Family
The chapel is located at a very beautiful turn in the road uphill, with chalets nearby, a really nice inn (Gasthof Maria Gern), and views of magnificent mountains. Several sheep are likely to be grazing outside. If you are a hotel guest anywhere in the Berchtesgaden area, , you get a free bus pass for the 837 bus that runs more or less hourly (also other public transportation is free). . The interior of this l8th century pilgrimage chapel is elaborately stuccoed with rococo altars and other decorations including a fine metal screen. It's elaborate but tasteful, not over the top as another writer said. You don't need a lot of time---much less than an hour for the visit. I do not know of guided tours here; Just go inside. I hope it's open when you're there because it's not always open.

Such a Pretty Church
Jun 2018 • Couples
This is such a pretty church with a particularly old Madonna. Although there are gates preventing you from fully entering most of the time it is definitely worth taking a moment to sit inside and take in the atmosphere. There are lovely walks starting from here as well so would recommend a visit.

Beautiful baroque church with views
Oct 2017 • Solo
It was a bit cloudy the day I wound my way up the twisty roads to Maria Gern but it still offered up some great views. A tour group had just left and the church was putting out candles and winding down inside, but the door was open and the interior was impressive. If you go a bit further up the road, there are a few parking spots offering up spectacular views down the valley. There are a few spots to park in-front of the church, but if you head past the church, there are more spots to the right up the hill and left down the hill.

Walking through

I stopped off in Maria Gern whilst taking a good walk around the mountains. A quant and beautifully decorative church offering peace and some cool on a very hot day.

Pilgrimage Church Maria Gern
Apr 2017 • Couples
The pilgrimage church Maria Gern is located about 3 to 4 miles from Berchtesgaden. The scenery in this area is breathtaking; it really is a pretty area. Unless there is a Mass going on there really isn't anything to see inside the church as most of the interior is blocked off; but you can go inside and see the wonderful architecture. It is nice.

Beautiful Old Church

This church was absolutely stunning, so were the views. We stayed in the hotel near the church and lots of tourist visited.

Great hike
Sep 2016 • Couples
Just a short drive from Berchtesgaden through small villages on the hillside. The hike to the top is fairly steep but can be done in less than an hour up. Great views from the top where there is a cafe where you can get a beer and a snack. Keep track of where you started the hike as there are multiple trails. You could end up at the wrong trailhead if you are not paying attention. This is highly recommended if you don't mind some steep uphill.

A beautiful place to visit on a walking distance from Berchtesgaden. Wonderful hiking paths on the way with waterfalls and Maria Gern Church is lovely. The restaurant serves really good food and wines, both glass and bottles, so we really enyojed our time here!
