Berchtesgadener Land in short

  • Spacious, quiet ski area
  • Five varied ski areas
  • Very good cross-country skiing

Berchtesgadener Land offers to perfect place to spend a winter holiday if you're looking for a relaxing ski area away from the hustle and bustle of the typical big ski resort. Although not technically a ski resort, since the slopes are located several kilometres away, Berchtesgaden is nevertheless a welcoming, authentic town with plenty to do.

There are six ski areas within reach of Berchtesgadener, which together offer more than 60km of slopes. Most of the ski areas are best-suited to beginners, although the Jenner ski area has some challenging red slopes for intermediate and advanced skiers. Easiest to reach from the town of Berchtesgaden is the Obersalzberg ski area, which has a dedicated children's area for the smallest skiers. Rossfeld has a snow park with a halfpipe and boardercross where freestylers can practice their jumps and tricks. The different ski areas are connected by ski buses and gondolas.

Regional highlight: The Watzmann (2713m)

The Watzmann is one of the most famous mountains in Germany, part of a massif that towers over the Berchtesgadener Land ski areas. Expert freeriders sometimes undertake challenging ski tours in the direction of the Watzmannhaus. The rest of us have to content ourselves with admiring the view of the third-highest mountain in Germany.
