The Saltalpes trail from Prien am Chiemsee leads over 233 km through the Chiemgau and the Berchtesgadener Land to Obertraun at the Hallstätter See at the foot of the Dachstein mountains in Austria.

Bergen is a lovely air health resort at the foot of the Hochfelln in a very central location between the Chiemsee and Salzburg.

In the Bergener Moos, time seems to have stood still with respect to the sensitive flora and fauna. Pure nature, not only for connoisseurs. The Maxhüttenmuseum is a centre of industrial history in the Chiemgau region.

The panoramic terrace of Chiemgau der Hochfelln offers ideal hiking opportunities in summer and pure skiing pleasure in winter. The Hochfelln is easily accessible with the cable car.

The limestone peak of Hochfelln invites those who want "higher" experiences to an audience royally and modestly. On comfortable hiking trails, between rugs of mountain pines and alpine pasture grass, next to crystal-clear mountain streams you hike up to the summit. Or you can take a comfortable cable car to the mountain world above the Chiemgau. Those who have had enough of the grey everyday life will not only find relaxation, but also a lot of variety.

With its 1.674 m, the Hochfelln is not called the panorama terrace of the Chiemgau for nothing. A fantastic view awaits the visitors. On beautiful, clear days, the view extends from Lake Chiemsee to Munich and the Central Alps. The Hochfelln is easy to reach with the 2-section cable car from Bergen. In only 15 minutes you float from the valley to the summit.
