Description of Berchtesgaden National Park

You can joint organized groups that travel between months of May and October or visit the place by yourself. Local salt mines provided local residents with wealth and prosperity, however it was not until World War II than Berchtesgaden became famous. Hitler and his associates like Borman, Himmler, Gering chose this place for their vacation homes in the mountains. The most known building is the Kehlsteinhaus also known as Adlerhost ("Eagle's Nest") that was given by Martin Borman to Hitler in 1939 on his birthday. The house was taken by the American 101st Airborne Division (The Screaming Eagle) in the end of World War II. Today Eagle's Nest houses a restaurant with plenty of history and breathtaking views. Another popular destination in Berchtesgaden National Park is a narrow mountain lake of Konigsee. It is surrounded by beautiful mountains on all sides. Although you can swim here it is fairly cold even in the summer months of the year.
