Lake Konigsee/Salt Mine/Eagle's Nest

Dear All,

I am staying in Salzburg and I plan to make a day trip from Salzburg to these three places in one day...

But actually would I have enough time to visit all three places on the same day? Buses are not frequent so would there be enough time for transit?

If I don't have enough time for all three places? Which two places should I visit? Personally I prefer Lake Konigsee and Eagle's Nest as I enjoy breath-taking view and phototaking. However, I was told that the Salt Mine is an exciting experience too and I don't know how to choose...

Lastly, is there some kind of bus pass that I could buy to cover my bus journeys from Salzburg to the three different places in Berchtesaden?

Many, many thanks!

abalada has got it right, it is rare. That was a Volkswagen that went to the bottom and is still there.

I would highly recommend, if there's not too much snow around, that you do the Malerwinkel walk for stunning views down the lake. I'm just about to add some photos of that very walk.

Also consider going up to Jenner on the chairlift, very scenic also.

The salt mine is good and interesting but also consider the walk around the town (loop track goes up and around) or catching a bus up to Ramsau or beyond to Hintersee.

Have a merry Xmas, Ian
