All in the town of Berchtesgaden, we went and visited Königssee, Obersee, and the Eagle's Nest. We took about a 3.5-hour drive to visit Königssee and Obersee first, ...
The train ride from Vienna was breathtaking as we traveled through a gorgeous valley surrounded by striking mountains. Zell Am See is a beautiful town on a lake in the valley. We were so happy to see such gorgeous mountains and get out of the city even for just a day. We spent our entire time in awe of Mother ...
