Sights and activities

Bad Reichenhall and surrounding area


The Predigtstuhlbahn  is considered to be the oldest original cable car lift in the world that is preserved in its original condition all year round.

Construction began in 1927 and the lift was put into service on July 1st, 1928. It has performed its job noiselessly and without fuss ever since.

More than 6.5 million passengers have been transported so far.

Rupertus Therme

The Rupertus Therme is located adjacent to an extensive park landscape, surrounded by a unique natural backdrop of mountains, spring water and a mild alpine climate.

A spa & fitness resort full of life and inner peace


The Bad Reichenhall Philharmonic is the world's largest year-round spa resort orchestra. The diversity of this orchestra is legendary and continues to evolve.

Their repertoire ranges from chamber music to symphonic concert series and big band music.

Alte Saline

The Old Salt Works in Bad Reichenhall is located below the Gruttenstein castle in the historic centre of Bad Reichenhall. It was built in 1834 by King Ludwig I.

In the “old saline” with its attached salt museum, you can learn all about everything from the origin of salt in Bad Reichenhall to saline and salt production in modern times.


Salzburg is often referred to as the city of Mozart because Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born here and spent more than half of his short life here.

A variety of attractions such as castles and palaces, local museums, natural spectacles, the fantastic mountain scenery and the abundance of lakes make Salzburg particularly attractive.

Salzburger Airport is only about 10 km away from our hotel. The Mozart city is well connected with the major European airports.

Berchtesgaden, Lake Königssee and Watzmann

The Königssee lies nestled in the mountains of the Berchtesgaden National Park below the Watzmann. Its water shimmers emerald green and gives it an unmistakable flair that thrills tourists year after year on boat trips across the lake.

About halfway across, you reach the pilgrimage church of St. Bartholomä, the former hunting lodge of the Bavarian kings and the starting point of numerous mountain tours. From here you can hike to, among other things, the east wall of the Watzmann.

The untouched nature of Königssee is certainly due to its inaccessible location between the steeply rising cliffs of the Berchtesgaden mountains.


The fantastic view of the Berchtesgaden and Salzburg regions from over 1,000 meters of altitude fascinated Adolf Hitler - so much so that he made Obersalzberg not only his favourite holiday resort, but also his second seat of government.

You can visit the kilometre-long bunkers that Hitler had built on Obersalzberg and the permanent exhibition in the Nazi Documentations Centre, built by the Munich Institute for Contemporary History in 1999.
