Beautiful landscapes and mountains. We scheduled a 2 weeks trip through Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland.
During this epic road trip, we have explored some of the most beautiful places in the Alps region. Some places we visited: • Berchtesgaden (Germany) • Hallstatt (Austria) • Schladming Tauern (Austria) • Cadini Di Misurina (Italy) • Seceda (Italy) • Ischgl (Austria/Switzerland) • Appenzell (Switzerland)
Germany also has a fascinating Alps mountain range. Located in south of Germany (Bavaria), Berchtesgaden is one of the best that show case the beauty of German Alps. In the video you will find out some of the best places to visit in Berchtesgaden: The all-year-round Ice Cave, Lake Obersee, Hintersee and Königssee.
Berchtesgaden is a German town in the Bavarian Alps on the Austrian border. South of town, Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest retreat, the Kehlsteinhaus, has a restaurant with alpine views. The Dokumentation Obersalzberg museum chronicles the Nazi era. Salzbergwerk Berchtesgaden illuminates the salt mine’s 500-year history. Lifts lead to Obersalzberg and Rossfeld ski areas. To the south, trails cross Berchtesgaden National Park.
Bogner’s latest road trip took him and his fellow curve hunters from Baden-Baden across the Black Forest to Lake Constance and along the German Alpine road to Tegernsee, Berchtesgaden and numerous other wonderful corners of Bavaria.
Along the way, the Porsche convoy stopped at the Dornier aircraft factories, the Gmünd paper mill and a plethora of fabulous hotels such as Ellmau Castle and the Kranzbach.

It is a special, almost festive feeling to travel with CURVES through Southern Germany. And there’s a good reason: The CURVES crew comes from here. Southern Germany is our home turf.
We grew up with the tang of the forests and meadows, with the feeling of sweet lake water in our hair, with slightly uneven legs due to the undulating mountainscape – and our way of thinking, which has its roots in the many generations before us: We are Bavarians, we are Swabians, we are people of the Black Forest. And we have been looking forward to this CURVES edition for a very long time. There was just no way around it.
Perhaps we should have brought our readers on this trip much earlier – it’s beautiful here. But it’s just not done. It would have been impolite, pushy and, we first had to get to know each other, anyway. Hence, it took long detours around half the world until we finally arrived in the Black Forest, in Swabia and Bavaria. Of course, that’s only half the story.
