Germany’s only Alpine National Park
After visiting the "Haus der Berge", you can get in touch with the real natural world in the National Park itself. Here you can also walk through the four main habitats – water, forest, Alpine pastures and rocky terrain – and explore the protected area through its range of altitudes. There is over 2000 meters in altitude separating Lake Königssee and the peak of Watzmann. In this true vertical wilderness, the powers of nature are still able to work freely to a great extent and nature can show its wilder side.
Like satellites, our national park information points are spread throughout the main valleys of the Park. Each one of the five information points houses a small exhibition offering in-depth insights into various topics.
