Photographer's Note

The Chiemgau Alps (German: Chiemgauer Alpen) are a mountain range in the Northern Limestone Alps and therefore belong to the Eastern Alps. Their major part is situated in Bavaria, Germany and only a small section crosses the Austrian border into the states of Salzburg and Tirol. They reach their highest elevation (1961 m) in the Sonntagshorn, a peak straddling the German-Austrian border.

Zwiesel 1781 m

The Hochstaufen is located in the north of Bad Reichenhall (Landkreis Berchtesgadener Land) and is the easternmost mountain of the Chiemgau Alps. The mountain belongs to the Staufen massif and is a popular destination for mountaineering.
