Schoenau am Koenigssee Hotels

Located on the edge of the Austrian/German border, the idyllic alpine landscape of Schoenau am Koenisgsee is home to vast evergreen pine forests, shimmering emerald lakes, and of course, the imposing splendour of the Berchtesgaden Alps complete the picture, and you'll find the oldest bobsleigh course in the world here. Skiing is the main focus of both locals and tourists, but you'll also find some stunning natural sights along with plenty of warming Bavarian cuisine to prepare for the slopes.

Things to see

If you can't wait to experience the excitement of the powdery white snow, then you'll want to head straight to Goetschen Ski Centre. The floodlit, pure white slopes of the centre means you can enjoy a thrilling slalom well into the evening, and there's a number of slopes to suit all levels. Ski tours are available, too. If you fancy a break from the fast paced thrills of the skiing, or are a history buff, a visit to the Eagle's Nest is a must. Located at an altitude of just under 2,000 feet, the brooding grey stone structure was built for Hitler's 50th birthday, and offers truly breathtaking views of the sweeping, jagged eastern Alps. Whatever time of year you visit, the sprawling natural beauty of the nearby national park has plenty on offer. There's also the striking, almost Middle Eastern architecture of St Bartholomew's Church to discover inside.
