Mountain House Inauguration in Berchtesgaden

Tuesday, 28 May 2013

With this slogan Bavarian Minister President Seehofer and Minister of the Environment Huber officially inaugurated the “Haus der Berge” (Mountain House) in Berchtesgaden, Germany on 24th May last.

The “Mountain House” is intended as the gateway to the Berchtesgaden National Park . Here you will find information and important advice not only to prepare your visit but also to enhance your experience of the protected area.

The “Mountain House” does not replace a visit to the national park, but is an excellent beginning or ending to hikes in this unique treasure – the only Alpine national park in Germany!

 The extraordinary architecture of the Mountain House, information and educational centre of the Berchtesgaden National Park, is based on a modern exhibition and an outdoor space, whose priority will be to raise awareness of the environment among children and teenagers.

Dr. Michael Vogel, Director of the National Park and president of the Alpine Network of Protected Areas (ALPARC) thus has at his disposal, after almost 10 years of planning and construction, one of the most excellent visitor centres in the Alpine protected areas, and Bavaria gains one more attraction.
