About 260 kilometers of hiking trails and alpine paths open up the Berchtesgaden National Park. The main trail network is signposted, the yellow signs are placed at all important starting points and trail junctions.
The individual trails are color-coded according to their difficulty. The yellow hiking trail signs stand for barrier-free trails, blue means "easy", red stands for "moderately difficult" and black indicates "difficult" trails.
This information is intended to support you in your tour selection and serves your safety!
On the yellow hiking trail signs in the National Park you will find different colored dots that assign a level of difficulty to each trail and climb. We wish you an unforgettable and safe stay!
Wildlife needs a lot of rest, especially in winter, in order to survive in the high mountains. Please stick to the designated ski tours and snowshoe routes during your winter activities. Black grouse, chamois and capercaillie will thank you!
