Traditions, culture, festivities and shopping
Berchtesgaden village or Markt Berchtesgaden as the locals refer to it. Most visitors unfortunately just stop by in Berchtesgaden, after visiting Eagles Nest or Königssee for a quick look and something to eat before heading back to Salzburg or München. It would be my pleasure to show you more on this walking tour of the village of Berchtesgaden with its interesting History, crafts, and traditions.
The exact order and itinerary also depend on the clients and their interests, but as we stroll through the village that dates back to 1102 I will point out the main landmarks, and the local craft shops all connected to the traditions.
Maybe you're looking for Lederhosen (leather trousers) or a Dirndl (dress) for October fest, I can show you where the locals would purchase their traditional clothes.
We could include a tour of the Royal Palace and depending on the time of year, take a stroll through the nostalgic Christmas market. During the 5th and 6th of December we might even be lucky to get a glimpse of the spooky Buttenmandel, a fascinating tradition which has been of high performance for hundreds of years.

The tour guide gave a great overview of Berchtesgaden. She relayed historical anecdotes and local traditions, and showed important buildings and sites. She was very well-informed about organic farming and the farm areas around Berchtesgaden, as well as the shops, markets, architecture and community in town. She also went the extra mile to show areas of interest to the traveller and to give orientating advice. Highly recommended.
