Our house, a former “fiefdom”, is located between Berchtesgaden and Ramsau, above a German alpine street. The sunny location in a stunning mountain landscape is a good starting point for a lot of delightful hikes. Our apartment is distinguished with 4 stars from the German tourism agency and has the quality mark of “countryside vacation” from the German agriculture agency (DLG). Both certificates guarantee good quality and sophisticated furnishing.
Highlights: Guided hikes and mountain tours, daily and weekly cooking courses, also bookable for children through the spa management. Lawn chairs, sun umbrealla, grilling space, playground, sleds free. We can help you get ski equipment upon request.
Winter sport options: The ski areas of Jenner, Götschen, Roßfeld and Hochschwarzeck offer everyone – beginners and experts – special winter fun. The skie region in Berchtesgaden is guaranteed snow from the middle of December until the end of March. In addition to alpine sport options, there are also a lot of cross country trails, sledding and toboggan runs, an indoor ice rink and the Watzmann thermal springs – a modern fun-and recreation park, along with infinite options for a drink after skiing.
Winter sun not only for skiiers: Walk in the kingdom of the snow king! The winter leads us with curling on flat ice and drives us with sleds. After all, Berchtesgaden is home to the world-famous lugist Georg Hackl and the location of the world championships for luging and bobsledding. Watch the fastest tubers or become one yourself. The worlds best snowboarders also come here and this winter we will have the world championships. More than 60 kilometers of slopes, ice skating rinks – the winter fun land is always open. The Berghof Punzenlehen**** is located 720m above sea level and is almost easy to reach via well kept streets. In exceptional circumstances, you will need winter snow chains. Sleds are available to our guests free of charge.
We found these holiday appartments purely by looking on the internet and choosing one that we felt would suit our needs. Located in a peaceful setting with stunning views of the Watzmann, our appartment became our home-from-home. Clean and well presented with special little touches, such as bathrobes and a decent hairdryer, we felt as if we had found a piece of heaven. The owners, Fiona and Christoph Lochner, have really surpassed themselves here. We were able to view all the appartments whilst we were there and found them all to have an individual style of their own, some more suitable for families - The Untersburg has a wonderful upper gallery where children can sleep, providing them with their own den. Hoher Goll has two lovely bedrooms, a good sized kitchen and a large wrap round balcony. We found it great because we like to cook for ourselves and all the kitchens have dishwashers. The surrounding area is full of birds and wildlife, just sitting on the balcony we saw a deer grazing down on the Wisen below us one evening at dusk. The mountain view is captivating, an ever-changing scene that you can sit and look at without ever tiring of it. This has to be one of the most relaxing holidays we have ever had and we are already planning our return later this year and most definitely next year a couple of times. We can thoroughly recommend these appartments. The approach is up a track, is steep and winding at times, but we were assured that this is kept clear during Winter months and poses no problems even during the heaviest snowfall. However, I would recommend that you ensure your car is up to the conditions during snow and ice, bearing in mind that winter tyres are supposed to be a legal requirement from November onwards. You do need a car to visit here. The surrounding area is full of great things to do, Berchtesgaden, The Eagles Nest, Jenner, Konigsee. salt mines and nearby Salzberg are all great tourist attractions. Also a visit to Bad Reichenhall's Kurpark is a must, just to see the Inhalatorium. But if you have health problems, such as asthma, this place is worth a visit.
This place should be kept a secret, but I would be doing the owners an injustice if I didnt give them a top rate review. They have obviously worked extremely hard to make this heaven on Earth. We are told that pets are welcome, but you must be prepared to accept a limited choice as the owners like to ensure that some of the appartments are kept allergen free.
Berchtesgaden, with its alpine national park around Watzmann and Königssee, belongs to one of the leading vacation areasin the world. With a few minues drive you can reach destinations like Königssee, Obersalzberg-Kehlstein, Wimbachklamm, Hintersee or Jennerbahn. Visit the Watzmann thermal springs in Berchtesgaden, the most modern recreational and water park in a 200 km radius. Ski regions like Jenner, Rossfeld or Hochschwarzeck and Götschen are not only a challenge for beginners.
Golf: On Obersalzberg, 5 km from our house, there is a golf facility with an incomparable panoramic view of the Berchtesgaden mountain world. Golf enthusiasts can play on the 9 hole course on the Berchtesgaden golf club at an elevation of 1000 meters. The golf course in Berchtesgaden combines stunning landscape with a unique panorama. Americans named the area “Sky Top” – today, it is the highest elevated golf course in Germany. The 9 courses and recreation program are just as exciting as the environment.
Ski: That is last week’s news: five ski areas with individual layouts, slopes guaranteed with snow, fast descents and safe practice slopes, a new snowboarding paradise in Götschen with a flood-lit area and half pipe, and cozy lodges, ski and snow board schools. Berchtesgaden is also perfect for those who want to spend time away from the slopes. There are more than 60 kilometers of trails, ice rinks and numerous luge runs. Berghof Punzenlehen is located in the center of all activities at an elevation of 720m. You can get to all of the skiing areas within a few minutes drive. For hikers that “only” want to breathe in the good air, there are 120 km of plowed hiking paths.
