Ramsau bei Berchtesgaden Hotels

Whether it's the virgin snow covered wonderland of winter, or the crisp forest greens of summer, the picture-postcard Bavarian village of Ramsau bei Berchtesgaden is sure to impress whatever time of year you visit. This peaceful nook, nestled in the shadow of the vast Watzmann, the third largest mountain in Germany, and its surrounding pine forests, makes the perfect place for a quiet retreat away from the bustle of everyday life. And it almost goes without saying there's superb skiing to be had as well.

Things to see

If you're visiting during the winter months, then skiing is likely to be your top priority. Ramsau bei Berchtesgaden more than delivers when it comes to smooth slopes, and is a particularly good place for beginners, thanks to the training headquarters of the Skichule Shwarzeck being located right by the numerous lifts. You can pick up the basics, or even some advanced techniques, before heading off to enjoy one of the many pale mountainside runs. The elegant white spire of the parish church of St Sebastian has made its way onto many postcards, and taking the time to wander its peaceful hall is definitely recommended. If you're visiting in the summer, then a trip to the Zauberwald, or "enchanted forest" is a must, especially for loved up couples. This entrancing slice of nature is over 4,000 years old, and is filled with twinkling streams. There's also the vast national park nearby, great any time of year.

You can sample some of the famous and filling Bavarian cuisine too. Ramsau bei Berchtesgaden hotels offer breathtaking views of the elegant scenery, whether rolling green pastures flecked with the vivid bloom of flowers in the summer, or the bright white beauty of the winter snows.
