Country house with 3 apartments, 2-4 people, 1-2 bedrooms, 45 to 85 sqm
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 ...

High quality apartment. Both bedroom and living room are dual aspect with mountain views. Ideal location without a car as it is on a bus route to Salzburg airport. Supermarkets, restaurants and bakeries in walking distance. Great choice of walks. We'll be returning.

We very much enjoyed our stay!
'A Little Piece Of Paradise'
We stayed for nine nights in apartment Zwiesel. What a wonderful place. It is a beautifully furnished apartment in perfect condition. It was lovely to meet Wilfried and Aurelia who were on hand to answer any queries and give recommendations. Aurelia was excellent to communicate with from initial contact. The location of the house is great. We decided on not renting a car and avail of public transport, which worked out very well. A little walk to the train station in Bayerisch Gmain. From here you can connect to Salzburg, Berchtesgaden, Konigsee, Eagles Nest, Munich etc. Bad Reichenhall is also a short walk away. The bus service is also excellent and good value if you buy a day ticket. The area is blessed with the most stunning scenery. It is a wonderful area for walking, hiking, cycling and a pure delight for photography. If visiting this area of Bavaria we would highly recommend this property, you will not be disappointed.
Great location and apartment
The Zwiesel is a very nice and clean apartment located in a superb valley surrounded by mountains. We enjoyed having a walk after diner with the view on the country. The apartment is close to Salzburg and allows accessing many other interesting locations such as Hohenwerfen’s castle, Golling waterfall and the Untersberg cable car. The hosts are charming, accommodating and keeps the place very well organized. We really enjoyed our stay my wife and I and we warmly recommending this apartment.
We stayed in Apartment Zwiesel for six nights in July, second week into our European tour which included Prague, Krakow and Vienna. We chose Bayerisch Gmain and Hochstaufenblick due to its proximity to Salzburg, Salzkammergut (Austria's Lake District), and Berchtesgaden.
Young at heart couple from Southern England
On arrival we were welcomed by Mrs Nogossek who provided us with map of the region and a quite a comprehensive guide to local facilities. A very nice touch was the beer in fridge and the chocolates on the pillows.
The apartment was clean, spacious and well equipped, in a quiet and peaceful location, with two balconies offering typical Bavarian pasture land views.
We would highly recommend this apartment as a base for touring this part of Germany and Austria or just for a few days of relaxation and tranquility.
peaceful, relaxing, & breath-taking...
the apartment was the perfect size for 2 people & had all of the amenities needed. the scenery & area was beautiful & walking distance to bakery & grocery store in minutes.
nice & quiet, calm & friendly community, & wonderful hospitality from owners.
will definitely return again.
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.
