The Jenner, 1874mThe Jenner is a mountain in the Berchtesgaden Alps that rises directly above the famous Königssee near Berchtesgaden in south-east Bavaria, Germany. It's easily accessible, either by cable-car to within ten minutes of the top, or by foot on well-marked paths the entire length of the way. As the summit has a rather exposed position between the Königssee, the Hohes Brett-Hoher Göll group and the Hagengebirge, one has a spectacular 360-degree view to all the mountains of the Hagengebirge, Steinernes Meer, Watzmann, the bavarian pre-alps, the Untersberg, the city of Salzburg, and, last not least, an awesome steep view 1200 meters down to the Königssee. I've been so many times up the Jenner without camera that I can't count them any more, but this year (2010) I went up two times shooting photos, once on Feb. 16th, and again on March 27th.
