Berchtesgaden and Eagle's Nest Day Tour from Munich

Embark on a guided tour of Berchtesgaden, Hitler's mountain retreat and the southern headquarters of the Nazi party on a full day coach trip from Munich. Eagle's Nest is a mountain top lodge built by the Nazis, and is a fascinating sight of historical significance. Located at 6,148 feet (1,834 meters) on top of Mt Kehlstein, the lodge has some of Germany's most amazing views of the Alps mountain range. Ironically, Hitler suffered from vertigo and rarely took pleasure in the views.

What You Can Expect

Berchtesgaden and Eagle's Nest Day Tour from Munich

Eagle's Nest, Germany

Due to the World War II bombings by the Royal Air Force, there is little evidence left of Hitler and the Nazi party's presence, however Eagle's Nest still stands.

From mid May to October, you will have the option to take a bus ride up the mountain to see Eagle's Nest for yourself. The last 390 feet (120 meters) of the trip is in a brass-clad elevator. During the winter months or during inclement weather when access to Eagle's Nest is restricted, you will instead visit the world famous Salt Mines. Wearing traditional mining gear you will descend into the depths of the mine where you can see glowing salt grottoes and a subterranean salt lake.

Brilliant, great day out.

The tour was great. Too much fog Togo to the tea house so our tour was the Nazi bunker and the salt mines. Both were very interesting and worthwhile. A good guide and the entire trip was very lovely and educational.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Excellent guide and very worth while visit. The weather was uncooperative with a lot of fog so the view was not seen at all. Beautiful countryside along the way.

Spectacular place to visit!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Totally worth it! The tour bus departed promptly at the appointed time and we were there on schedule, in spite of problems caused by passport controls being implemented at the border. This tour takes away the hassle of having to deal with traffic, tickets etc. and simply delivers you to Eagle's Nest with minimal effort. Unfortunately, the top of the mountain was extremely foggy and i could not see anything from Eagle's Next, but that still did not detract from the place itself.
The time at Berchtesgaden is fairly small but this town is not something you would be able to cover in 1 hour anyway. I came back the next day and stayed overnight at Berchtesgaden, to take in the many vistas and sights.
Out tour guide Ana was extremely knowledgeable and gave us many interesting nuggets of information about Munich, Germany, Eagle's Nest and it's history, along the way. We had the added bonus of driving back through quaint, CHARMING little hamlets on the way back to Munich in order to avoid a major traffic jam on the highway. It was like a tour within a tour, there's no way i would have been able to traverse through those little towns on my own.
All in all, would DEFINITELY recommend this tour!
