Berchtesgaden Tour in a Volkswagen Beetle
Salt mine, car museum, winding mountain roads
Day 1 Berchtesgaden and Königssee
The Berchtesgaden National Park is extremely picturesque. The route here will take you past sights such as Schliersee, Bayrischzell and Traunstein. Not only does the Berchtesgaden area offer impressive natural beauty, you will also be spoilt for choice when it comes to things to see. Should you take a trip through time at the historical salt mine or enjoy a challenging hike to Saint Bartholomew’s Monastery at the Königsee or visit the Nazi Documentation Centre and the Eagle’s Nest? The salt mine in Berchtesgaden is well worth a visit because it is home to some amazing lighting installations and visitors can explore the mine on a mine train, gliding along wooden tracks, travel on a mine boat or walk through the mine on foot. Not only is Königsee a frequent backdrop for popular music videos, but also a uniquely unspoilt natural spectacle.
Day 2 “ The Steinerne Meer”
After checking out of your hotel, your drive for the day begins with the notorious Rossfeldpanoramastrasse. Planned and constructed by the Third Reich and a notorious route for motorsport fans, this private toll road leads up the Obersalzberg and continues to the foot of the Ahornbüchsenkopf. Rossfeldstrasse, at more than 1500 m elevation, is the highest ring road in Germany, and from the summit you can enjoy spectacular views of the Dachstein mountain range, the Watzmann and into the Salzkammergut. The tour route continues to Austria. You will then drive on via Hallein and Bischofshofen to the next scenic highlights: Hochkönig and the “Steinerne Meer”. The winding roads of the Hochkönigstrasse are great fun to drive and the impressive Hochkönig provides the perfect Alpine backdrop for your Volkswagen Beetle Convertible tour. Further west, you will reach Saalfelden and travel along the Lofer road and past the Walchensee at Nussdorf am Inn and then back on to Bavaria. The road is named after the “Tatzlwurm”, a mythical creature, winding in narrow bends from the Inn Valley and up until just outside Bayrischzell. Your journey will then take you back to Munich via Schliersee.

Bavaria is a classic holiday location, for sports enthusiasts and culture lovers alike.
With its world-famous sights such as the castles of the Bavarian Fairytale King Ludwig II, the Andechs, Benediktbeuern and Ettal monasteries, the attractions in the state capital Munich and its varied, unforgettable natural panarama, Bavaria is the most attractive holiday region in Germany, attracting more than 25 million visitors a year. Bavaria is captivating, thanks to its natural diversity and harmonious combination of mountains and lakes.
You will drive along romantic roads under a blue-and-white sky, past lush, green meadows and shady woods, along the numerous lakes, through tiny villages, along long, narrow mountain passes, up to fields full of flowers, steep gorges and snow-capped mountains. And what could be nicer on our carefully selected routes than to stop off at one of the numerous inviting country inns or beer gardens and to get to know the culinary side of Bavaria – not for nothing is it known as a place for connoisseurs. Experience the unique Bavarian beer garden culture – Bavaria’s answer to the Italian Dolce Vita. A cool, freshly tapped pint of beer in the beer garden, with some hearty Bavarian delicacies such as Hendl, Steckerlfisch or Obazda mit Breze – that’s Bavarian heaven. Nowhere else can Bavarian life be experienced so completely. Custom and tradition are still very much a way of life here.
Bavaria enjoys a perfect symbiosis between the traditional and the modern, progress and development. Moreover, Munich and its surrounding area are home to successful companies such as Allianz, BMW, Audi and Siemens, and not forgetting the record-breaking football club FC Bayern Munich. Once a year, Munich is the home of the Oktoberfest, which rather curiously takes place in September and has very much developed into the top export of Bavarian tradition over the last few years. Bavaria combines unspoilt nature and vibrant life, with its boundless diversity of rich art and culture. There really is something for everyone here. And this is exactly why Bavaria provides the perfect backdrop for our Beetle Cabrio tours.
