Berchtesgaden national park, Germany
Berchtestagen national park is located in the Bavarian Alps in southern Germany bordering Austria. Local farmers use the area for alpine farming and the park is a good example of how cultural values are merged with conservation efforts. Livestock spend the summer months in the fertile meadows and the hill slopes and when they come down from the mountain in September, the event is celebrated throughout the area.
