A Visit to Berchtesgaden

Lars and I spent most of our Christmas holiday in Berchtesgaden, a small town in the southeast of Bavaria. It’s a very touristic place, thanks to its surrounding mountains and especially the Obersalzberg, which used to be a Nazi headquarter. You can also visit salt mines or spend a day in Salzburg, which is about 30 kilometres away.

Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough time to visit all these interesting sites. After the brutal theft of my camera equipment in the station of Cologne, we spent hours on the phone with our travel insurance, who at the end didn’t help us at all. Afterwards, we had to travel to Salzburg in order to buy a new camera. And it took another half a day, before my Nikon was charged and I had become used to it.

Lars and I were very happy when we could finally visit and photograph the centre of Berchtesgaden and especially its old town. To my soulmate’s big delight the local Christmas market was still there.

It was about time to taste some glühwein! Until then, I thought that there was only one variant, so I was very happy when I could taste a white glühwein. And a couple of local liquors as well!

The cozy atmosphere at the market soon made us forget the bad start of our holiday…

After some time, we became hungry and started looking for a place to eat. The oldest inn of Berchtesgaden served delicious food and drinks at very reasonable prices.

And then, a last stroll in the old town, before the sun went down.
