Berchtesgaden is a town perched in the mountains, teeming with Bavarian charm. Just imagine wandering through clusters of quaint old houses, finding crystal clear lakes framed on all sides by lush forests and seeing the majestic Alps and their spectacular snowy slopes where you can go tobogganing and skiing. Wonderful, right? Berchtesgaden is also filled with numerous historic sites, including the “Eagles’ Nest”, which was used by Nazi forces for meetings. Contrary to public opinion, it has been reported that Hitler himself rarely visited the Eagles’ Nest - he was said to have disliked heights. Now, the site has been converted into a beautiful restaurant operated by a charitable trust. To help you explore all these points of interest and more, we’ve curated a list of the top Airbnb vacation rentals located centrally in Berchtesgaden. Enjoy your vacation!
1. Room 'Jenner' near Kings Lake (from USD 80)

For example, the base of the mighty Gruenstein Mountain is just a ten-minute walk away. Scale to its peak and you’ll be rewarded with stunning views and hearty food at a restaurant near the top.
