The Röthwand with Röthbachfall from the direction of the Saletalm ; The Röth is located below the peaks of the Großem and Kleiner Teufelshorn.

The Röth is a former alpine pasture area between the Hagengebirge and the Steinernes Meer, southeast of the Königsee in the core zone of the Berchtesgaden National Park . It lies between 1,300 and 1,600 meters above sea level in a large, partially wooded basin, which is dominated by the Great and Small Devil's Horns and the Funtenseetauern .

From the upper lake basin which is Röth separated by the 700 meter high Röthwand. The Röthbach forms an imposing waterfall here .


The formerly managed alpine pastures (Untere and Obere Röthalm, Schabaualm, Neuhüttenalm, Sonntagsalm, Wildpalfen-Alm) are now derelict, the alpine huts were demolished during World War II . The 1950 rebuilt Wasseralm was 1956 the last time bumped and now serves as Alpenvereinshutte with simple management.

Foundation of the Görings hunting lodge

Like the Obersalzberg , the Röth was declared a restricted area during the National Socialist era and in 1934 Hermann Göring declared it a “nature reserve of special order”. Also in 1934 a hunting lodge (Elisabeth Keimer Hut) was built in the Neuhüttenalm area for Reichsjägermeister Göring for 42,000 RM . This was torn down in the spring of 1949, the foundations are still there today.

In 1936 Alpine ibex were successfully released from the Italian Gran Paradiso National Park in Röth . For this purpose, the Fischunkelalm – Röth material cable car was built, which transported the ibex in wooden boxes to the Röth.


Liftings from Obersee ( Fischunkelalm ) over the Landtal- or Röthsteig require good physical condition, good head for heights and surefootedness . These are narrow, partially secured and marked trails, for which the experienced mountaineer needs around three hours from the Salet jetty to the Wasseralm .


To the Steinerne Meer ( Kärlingerhaus and Riemannhaus ), to the Gotzenalm via the Landtal and the Regenalm , to the Stahlhaus via the Landtal, Hochgschirr and the Schneibstein and to the Eckberthütte in the Blühnbachtal via the Blühnbachtörl.
