About the Bertl family
In now the 5th generation and with the 6th generation on the heels we, the Bertl family, run the “Kirchberger”.
Join us, the Bertl family, on a journey to simply enjoy. Nestled in the beautiful landscape of the Pfaffenwinkel and the foothills of the Alps, surrounded by lakes, crystal-clear mountain rivers and nature reserves.
There is much to discover all around: from the mountains, churches, museums and the royal castles to the Zugspitze…whether hiking, biking or in short distances by car. For the physical well-being we provide with our excellent natural alpine cuisine!
