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.

The air and Kneipp spa resort of Prien is located on the "Bavarian Sea", as Lake Chiemsee is also known, and is one of the two end points of the Salzalpensteig.

We are in the heartland of Upper Bavaria between Munich and Salzburg, at the foot of the Alps, with a view of the Kampenwand mountains.

Prien is the largest municipality on Lake Chiemsee. Despite its approximately 10,000 inhabitants, the rural, family character of the village has been preserved.

Here you can also expect exquisite concerts in special surroundings, e.g. on the Herreninsel in the fairytale castle of King Ludwig II.
