Countryhouse Hochstaufenblick **** is part of Estate 'Kollmannsbrunn' and is situated in the surroundings of the Berchtesgadener National Park, adjacent to the border with Austria, and provides views of the idyllic farmland at the foot of the Hochstaufen, Zwiesel, and Predigstuhl mountains that lend their name to its three separate holiday apartments. ‘Staufen’ is a large, ground-floor family apartment with two bedrooms, while ‘Zwiesel’ and ‘Predigtstuhl’ offer smaller, one bedroom accommodation on the first floor. The property is surrounded by meadows and farmland, as well as country houses on the outskirts of the villages Bayerisch Gmain and its Austrian counterpart, Grossgmain. Footpaths and cycle ways lead directly from the house to the spa town of Bad Reichenhall (3 km), as well as nearby forests and the Austrian village of Grossgmain.
Nature and culture ... : Have the best of two worlds: Experience a breathtaking nature reserve and enjoy unparalleled cultural highlights: The Berchtesgarden National Park offers everything a nature-lover could wish for: Beautiful lakes such as Thumsee, Hintersee and the famous fjord-like Königssee; dramatic gorges and waterfalls such as Wimbachklamm, Aschauerklamm and Almbachklamm; breath-taking views and mountain treks easily reachable by car or cable cars to mountains like Predigtstuhl, Jenner, Obersalzberg and Kehlstein; historic monasteries and churches like Pfarrkirche Ramsau and Maria Gern. And when you are tired of hiking, when the sky is grey, or when you simply feel the desire for a welcoming city with an international flair, then Mozart's birthplace Salzburg offers everything you could wish for within a 20 minutes' drive: festivals, concerts, theatre plays and art exhibitions as well as the seductive Austrian cuisine.
... and a lot of water: Lakes, lakes, lakes: Chiemsee, 'The Bavarian Sea', with its wide range of water sports facilities and the famous palace of Herrenchiemsee is only half an hour away. The 'Salzkammergut', the region surrounding Salzburg City, with its crystal-clear lakes Mondsee, Fuschlsee, Wolfgangsee, Attersee and Traunsee is also only a short drive from your 'home'.
and in wintertime ...: opportunities for nordic skiing with cross-country ski runs close to the house, alpine skiing for beginners as well as the more advanced on the Obersalzberg and in the area around Jenner-Königssee, but also opportunities for snow-trekking as well as tranquil horse sleigh and carriage rides through romantic winter scenery for the somewhat less dynamic ...

It was easy to find being only 14 km from Salzburg airport.
On arrival, after some admin. stuff, Aurelia explained all the places to visit.
The property itself was as it was in the pictures. Immaculately clean with all amenities. It was wam (had to turn down the thermostat) and very comfortable. The heated floor in the bathroom was such a bonus.
The property was just across the border from Austria. So we were able to have breakfast in Germany and then nipped acroos the border to have lunch. There are lots of places to eat and prices are reasonable.
The property has a nice mountain vista around it. You could almost re-enact the Sound of Music part where Julie Andrews runs up the hill and start singing.
You can drive to Salzburg and leave the car in one of the many park and ride places. We left ours near the zoo and cost about 3 euros to park all day. Alternatively, you can catch a bus (return fare 6 Euros). They are very punctual.
The famous mountain pass (Grossglockner) is about 30 minutes drive away. Unfortunately, they are open only in May so was not able to go. Hoping to return in the summer to try this out.
In conclusion, the property was a delight to stay in and I would recommend it to anyone who just wants to chill out or explore the many picturesque places around it.
We stayed in the Staufen apartment with our two girls. The apartment was perfect, spacious, very clean, comfortable, fully equiped with plenty of home comforts.
The owner was very friendly and helpful, and recommended several things to see and do in the local area, places to shop and buy fuel/bread etc and was always available if we needed anything.
There were a number information leaflets and a very helpful book in English and German of things to do and visit.
We liked the location, in fact there were too many things to see and do in the this area for our week's stay. The apartment is only 20 minutes drive from Salzburg and 5 minutes walk from the Austrian border.
We would definitely go back and stay here again, in fact the girls have already asked 'when are we going back', we had a great time. I would certainly recommend the apartment and the location.

As a family visiting from Australia we had a number of questions from the outset about the property, local weather and amenities.
The owners were exceptional in both response times and the provision of additional information both before our trip and when we arrived.
We stayed in the family apartment as we were travelling with our two boys aged 4 and 8. The apartment itself was five star, well equipped and perfect for a travelling family. There were also lovely personal touches of chocolates, and a marked up map on our arrival showing where to buy food etc. How nice.
The location was close to Salzburg as well as a host of other natural attractions in the area and if you are thinking of Salzburg I would strongly consider this property as it is only a short drive.
What an amazing part of the world.

The local Baker is a must for fresh bread and cakes.
Our family spent 8 nights in the Staufen apartment in August 09. The property was maintained and furnished to the highest standards. The views from the garden & terrace are spectacular, with plenty of space for our children to play. The facilities in the town of Gmain are a short walk away (5 mins) with a pleasant selection of cafes, shops and restauants. The property is ideally positioned for exploring the wonderful Berchtesgaden region, with a fabulous selection of attractions & activities. Finally, a mention for the hosts, who were extremely pleasant and helpful (while being completely unobstrusive). We certainly hope to be back!
Bayerisch Gmain is a typical Bavarian village that lies at ca. 600 m above sea level, near the well-known spa town of Bad Reichenhall, which offers numerous restaurants and cafes, a tranquil park, a casino, and a modern health resort. The surrounding Berchtesgardener Land is renowned for its idyllic Alpine scenery and expansive forests, as well as the many lakes and hiking trails that ensure an almost limitless possibility for excursions and discovery. Across the nearby Austrian border lies the historic city of Salzburg, which offers various historical and cultural attractions, such as its medieval fortress, numerous cathedrals, churches, and palaces, as well as a thriving musical scene attesting to its heritage as the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Its surrounding countryside, the Salzkammergut, is also home to idyllic lakes and villages.
Golf: In Marzoll, a village only 5 km kilometres from 'Hochstaufenblick', you will find a driving range and a putting green with a small 6-hole golf course. Green fee for the entire stay with us: €50.00 (!). In addition there are of course a number of 18-hole golf courses in the vicinity. On Obersalzberg, about 20 km from 'Hochstaufenblick', you have the opportunity to play on Germany's highest course.
