Tours are expensive and operators are pushy. Not much to see at the top, but fun to be there. There is a restaurant for a rest and a few good posters. Special buses and an elevator take you the last two legs.

Coming here can be quite the ordeal. You cannot drive yourself to the top, but rather hope on a bus and traverse to the top (this was perfect for us due to the crazy switchbacks). The views of the Alps was AMAZING! You cannot believe...More

When you visit here and reflect on the history of the site and think about the discussions and decisions that must have taken place here, it will give you pause. You have to park down near Berchtesgarden and take the bus up the 7km road...More
