HAUS DER BERGE
INFORMATION AND EDUCATIONAL CENTER OF THE NATIONAL PARK
Haus der Berge is the information and education center of the Berchtesgaden's National Park. In the permanent exhibition Vertical Wilderness you can experience nature in Germany's only Alpine National Park from the bottom of lake Koenigssee to the summit of the Watzmann. The environmental education center and the outdoor area of the Haus der Berge complete the permanent exhibition! In the Haus der Berge in Berchtesgaden, the exhibition "Vertical Wilderness" is located in a large room, where visitors get to know the local nature on a steadily increasing hike:
The entire spectrum of life from the bottom of lake Koenigssee to the summits of the Alps
The habitats: water, forest, pastures and rocks
Sound and light productions for the special moods of nature in a seasonal change
The highlight of the exhibition is the mountain showcase, whose lamellas reveal the view of the Watzmann at the end of the exhibition, creating a connection between the reproduced nature of the exhibition and the actual Berchtesgaden National Park. Furthermore there is a cinema, the restaurant "Spiesbergers Alpenküche" as well as special and temporary exhibitions in the information center. Admission to the cinema, the special and temporary exhibition and the library are free.
