Always walk from the obersalzburg bann through the woods. Try and pick a nice day and sit outside. The views are fabulous, enough to take your breath away. The food is excellent and the speciality cake a wow. Can get very busy but service is always good and prompt.

Had read in Trip Advisor that this restaurant was a walk thru the woods from the Documentation Museum. So glad that I asked at the Museum. You can walk, but it takes a good hour one way. Make a reservation to ensure a table that will afford you remarkable views. The food was good, but not great. Had the cordon... More

Not sure what is better the view or the food. This Resturant could easily serve mediocre food. The view is amazing. People would come for the view. But - the food is amazing. We had lunch and desert. Obviously home cooked and fresh. If you are in the area, make a reservation and eat here! You will have a wonderful... More

Known for their speciality cake, a 'Windbeutelbaron' which comprises choux pastry packed with ice cream and cream and a range of flavourings (we shared a Raspberry Coulis) this place is just so special. The setting offers views across Berchtesgaden and Konigssee which alone is fabulous, add to this the cake, a wonderfully authentic chalet setting and such friendly people running... More

So, we had just finished riding the Sommerrodelbahn, and I wanted to eat a little something before taking the forest path to the Dokumentation Obersalzburg. We found this gem. It was freaking delicious. I had been ordering Cordon Bleu throughout my 2 weeks in Germany because 1) I love it and 2) why not? I ordered it again. My 16... More

This is truly dining with a view! The people were friendly and we were recommended food and also a typical German dessert which was so enjoyable. Some diners even struck a conversation with us. We enjoyed our food, the company and though it was a cloudy day, the view was still excellent!

After spending a heart wrenching morning at the documentation museum, the clouds and rain disappeared, and I finally found this Gasthaus, the attentive service was second to none, both waitresses were very helpful, the desserts were everything I read about and more!! The restaurant also had a beautiful terrace area, which affords wonderful views, if you do one thing in... More

This is the second year that we have eaten at this Café - or should I say eaten one of their amazing Windbeutels. The café restaurant has great service, good priced menu but is famous for its Windbeutels. And what a range they offer. We walk there along the Carl von Linde Weg from the Documentation Station and walk back... More

Dear Guest,We are very happy to greet you here in our lovely home.Whether for lunch or afternoon coffee and cake , we wish you a relaxing visit as you enjoy our spectacular mountain views. Everything we have to offer is prepared using only the freshest of meats and vegetables. Our pastries and cakes are home made and prepared with locally harvested eggs and the finest ingredients. Even our "Windbeutel", for which we are famous, are baked fresh daily and prepared in a variety of ways.The recipe for this house specialty has been a well kept secret for over 40 years. The Windbeutel was originally created by a pastry chef from Berlin, who frequently vacationed here in our home. We hope you enjoy your time here with us and thank you for your visit. We are open 10 am to 6 pm every day, but Wednesday. Unfortunately, we don't offer dinner, but we would be glad to serve you lunch (from 11 am to 4 pm).Our restaurant is easy to find. Just follow the road signs up the hill to "Kehlstein" and exit the roundabout on the road that leads further up the hill. After another 3 minutes of driving, you'll see our sign, which says "Gasthaus Graflhöhe", on your right.We are happy, if you are.As the guests are the center of our acting, we and our staff are hosts for who kindliness and cordiality are top priority.
