Sightseeing in Berchtesgadener Land

A trip across Austria's border can be very rewarding. In neighboring Bavaria, for example, exciting excursion destinations are combined with the sincerity and authenticity of the Bavarians themselves. From Hallein, the easiest way to get to Berchtesgadener Land is by driving straight over the Dürrnberg.
