Der Berchtesgadener Hochthron (1972 m) as seen from the Hirschkaser above Ramsau, Bayern (Bavaria), Southern Germany
It’s the highest peak of the Untersberg massif in the Berchtesgaden Alps. Its summit offers one of the best views of the region as it has an unobstructed view over the valley as well as all 9 massifs of the Berchtesgaden Alps, the Chiemgau Alps, the Austrian mountains of the Salzkammergut, and the Tennengebirge. There are several marked trails that lead to the summit; most are moderately strenuous hikes. The numerous rock climbing routes of the south wall are among the most popular and historically significant climbs. The most difficult ones are usually attempted in November on the “Old South Face” ( Level III +).
