The Kempinski Hotel, Berchtesgaden, Germany, is a hideaway with breathtaking views in the Bavarian Alps. Although it sits in an Alpine, what awaits visitors is the huge arc of a majestic 5-star luxury hotel without parallel in the region. Moreover, it matches the splendor and grandeur of the mountains and deep pine forests that surround it.
This beautiful area in the Bavarian Alps was shunned for some time after World War 2 because of its previous associations with the Nazi command. However, this was swept away by opening the splendid Intercontinental Hotel in 2005, reviving local and international tourism.
Although this dark past lingers, the modern hotel brings new energy to the area. In 2015, it was taken over by the Kempinski group. Besides, Kempinski management boasts 120 years of ownership of some of Europe’s finest luxury hotels, with Berchtesgaden one of the more recent ones.
The new management developed a character style with its natural surroundings in the Bavarian mountains.
The hotel sits at an altitude of 1000 meters at Obersalzberg. This is 400 meters above Berchtesgaden village from where it got its name. The region is also famous as one with outstanding natural beauty, offering visitors peace and serenity. Additionally, there are breath-taking mountain views, dense woodlands, and crisp Alpine air.
The region is also famous for its natural lakes, notably the crystalline beauty of Konigssee (King’s Lake) in the Berchtesgaden National Park. Moreover, although secluded high up in the Alps, the hotel is only half an hour from Salzburg. It also connects easily to Munich or Hamburg.
There is also a connection via the Deutsche Bank railway. Besides traveling by car, the roads are good, and the resort has a large car park and garage facilities.
Kempinski is undoubtedly a luxury hotel. It strives to offer visitors the warmth and welcome of Bavarian hospitality. Guests are also met by efficient and friendly staff wearing traditional Bavarian costumes. You will get a welcome drink in the impressive yet, relaxing reception area. Also, the hotel's concept rests on using local resources to connect guests to the natural surroundings.
Natural wood and stone make the décor of the lobby and lounges. Additionally, locally sourced products supply the dining rooms and bar. The rooms and suites are also luxurious to maximize the enjoyment of the Alpine setting.
The décorof the 138 rooms and suites radiates the same warmth as the welcome to this hideaway hotel. The rooms are in a clean, modern style with subtle colors, fine fabrics, and supreme comfort.
