Berchtesgaden:eagle's nest, jenner, konigsee and salt mines

If we are coming from Salzburg by car in May which order would you suggest we do these activities and what would the route be.

Eagle's Nest - do our own tour

Jenner - Up the cable car

Konignsee-boat ride

Salt mines-tour

If we have to leave one thing off what would it be. We are great hikers and like a packed itinerary.

First, youwanttoi check that the road tothe Kehlsteinhaus (ral name of the Eagle's Nest) is open

My persional order of priority (1)Jenner, (2) Koenigsee (same parking lot as Jenner), (3) Salt Mine (Salzbergwerk), (4) Kehlsetinhaus (similar to Jenner, latter is prettier). Add as 3b Dokument Zenter at the base where Keksteinhaus bus leaqves.

Treplow's advice re: road up to Eagle's Nest is very good. It rarely, if ever, opens before mid-May and is subject to intermittent closures after that based on weather.

Ah, May 15 is the typical opening day, drat. But you might get lucky!

Is the documentation centre still opened and is this worth going to see?

Yes, the Documentation Center is open during May from 9 - 5 daily, with last entrances at 4:00 pm.

It is well worth doing, very interesting and well done.

The Kehlsteinhaus is not hugely interesting in my opinion. People do tend to think of it as "Hitlers place", which it wasn't really.

The Document Centre IS good; so is the Janner.
