If I had to choose just one Hotel with the best Breakfast Buffet, I’d elect the 5 Star Kempinski Hotel in Berchtesgaden in the Bavarian Alps near Austria. The quality, quantity and overall presentation, besides the friendly and engaged service, is just way above standards. Subtle details such as a breakfast I’m already looking for days before a Trip, are definitely the best! Kempinski Hotel Berchtesgaden is located outside the picturesque city centre of the less than 8,000 inhabitant area. Situated on a small hill right next to sky-touching mountains, the atmosphere nearby is genuinely fascinating. Besides the fact that Hitler had his “second residence” just a few hundred metres away.
As you can see in the first picture below, the scenery is absolutely breathtaking, with the Hotel sitting in the middle of the most beautiful nature. Arrival to Kempinski Berchtesgaden is smooth by Car; otherwise, a Taxi will drive approximately 15 minutes from Berchtesgaden Train Station. The car ride from Munich takes roughly 2 hours or 45 minutes from Sound-of-music Capital Salzburg in Austria.
Check-In went fast as usual, and within minutes, I was greeted by a stunning view right from the moment I opened the door to my Hotel Room. My Room with the number 106 is located on the first ground floor and features a spacious balcony, hence the name Deluxe Terrace Room. It doesn’t come too handy now in the winter season; however, the floor to ceiling windows offered a beautiful view outside. Breakfast is served from 7:30 am at the Restaurant Johann Grill.
