Permafrost has a great importance for the stability of rocks and debris in the high mountains. Permafrost degradation may lead to increased natural hazards. Due to the advance of climate change research and evaluation of the distribution are more important. In this master thesis an attempt is made to find the potential permafrost areas in the Berchtesgadener Alps, with a particular focus on the national park Berchtesgaden.First, an initial assessment is calculated by using mean annual air temperature of 14 automatic weather stations in the national park Berchtesgaden. As the soil temperature is an important indicator of permafrost, such measurement has been made at the Hochkalter and the result of this measurement is integrated in the work. There are as well several modellings of Grixa and Warscher (2009) and from the project PermaNET-BY. During the project, rock loggers and iButtons were installed in the summit area of the Hochkalter to get information about the subsurface temperatures. In addition, a permafrost map of the Bavarian Alps was created. For the data, the annual mean and Winter EquilibriumTemperature can be determined in order to suggest the presence or absence of permafrost.Beside these methods, perennial snowfields and snow filled sinkholes are digitalized in orthophotos and used as a further indicator of permafrost.The result of the study shows, that in the Nationalpark Bechtesgaden the most likely permafrost areas are in the top regions of the Watzmann, Hochkalter, Hocheisspitze, Funtenseetauern, Hoher Göll and the Großer Hundstod. However, it is to be expected with a great probability to find Permafrost also in lower locations. The finals results are finally visualized in a result map.
