Tour code: 285011
Visit the Eagle’s Nest in Berchtesgaden, Adolf Hitler’s famous mountaintop retreat, on this day trip from Munich. Travel by air-conditioned coach through Bavaria’s lush mountainscapes, and ride a bus and elevator to the lodge, 6,148 feet (1,834 meters) up Mt Kehlstein. See where Hitler entertained dignitaries, view the hall where weddings and conferences were staged, and explore the terrace to admire the spectacular Alpine views — vistas that Hitler, ironically, found challenging due to his vertigo. In the event of bad weather, you will visit the world-famous Berchtesgaden salt mines instead.

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.

Definitely, the highlight of my recent personal WWII Tour of Munich, Krakow and Warsaw!
I say highlight, because the beauty of Southern Bavaria and the Obersalzberg, in particular, was breath-taking!
Although I took the tour to visit Hitler's tea-house Kehlsteinhaus/Eagle's Nest the tour was so much more!
Travelling through the lush green countryside and seeing the awesome views of Berchtesgaden and Konigssee lake from Eagle's Nest are sight that will live with me for the rest of my life.

Comfortable coach even though it was a group of 60 it was very well managed and one of the best trips I had in Germany. Katrina was an excellent guide and we covered not only Berchtesgaden but also a lot of the beautiful countryside by taking a different return route. I have had good trips before with Gray Line and I was not disappointed.
