Germany's Mountain Gem

Bordered on three sides by Austria, Berchtesgaden is encircled by snow-capped mountain peaks that offer sweeping views of the entire region. A major tourist destination, the town became well-known to the general public when Adolf Hitler used it as a summer getaway. His mountaintop house was dubbed the Eagle's Nest by the occupying American forces after the war. Today, Hitler's mountain retreat serves as a restaurant with some of the best views in the country. Though Berchtesgaden is in a relatively remote location, it features world-class sports facilities. Relax at the nearby thermal baths, featuring whirlpools, waterslides, saunas, and salt-water pools. In the winter, you can ski, ice skate, and even sled down a world-famous bobsled course.
