Nature Hot Spot:
Berchtesgaden is one of National Parks of Germany.
The scenery is just beautiful, with the Alps, and couple of lakes, such as lake Königssee, lake Hintersee, and many more.
You can read about some recommended hikes in the area in my blog post.
During a one week stay, we got the chance to see the golden eagle. Guided tours are offered to watch this eagle, you can join them from Berchtesgaden nature reserve info center nearby the Lake Hintersee.
We also got to see a wallcreeper, above the Blaueishütte cottage.
Of course, there are many more species living in that area, that are common to the alps.
