Berchtesgaden, a small town in southern Bavaria close to the Austrian border, lies in a beautiful setting in the Bavarian alps. Mount Watzmann (2713m), the third-highest mountain in Germany, the deep glacial Königssee lake and the Kehlstein mountain (1835 m) with the famous Kehlsteinhaus (Eagle's Nest) lie nearby. Berchtesgaden is known internationally because here the Nazis and Hitler used to reside frequently.
