FROM CHALET TO PALACE IN BAVARIA EACH DAY REVEALS TO THEM SOME NEW GLORY OF THE ALPS For many centuries the town of Berchtesgaden was the capital of an independent principality so tiny that it was said to be "as high as it was wide." Its inhabitants include many skilled toy makers and wood carvers, and these industries, along with rich salt deposits near by, have con tributed to the town's continued prosperity. © National Geographic Society Autochromes by Hans Hildenbrand THOUSANDS COME TO ENJOY THE QUAINT CHARM OF TEGERNSEE The houses of this interesting town are made chiefly of stone covered with smooth plaster. On the outside walls scenes of religious events and personalities are painted in bright colors. The costumes worn by the young women add materially to the town's attractiveness as a summer resort.
