Great tour up in the alps with a view that has to be seen to be believed. The house is literally perched on the edge of a cliff with the only acess via an elevator. Would liked to have at least seen a driveby of more of Berchtesgaden but that was not to be. If you have the time ,don't miss this day trip.
What a fun trip! A guided tour was a first for us, but it turned out to be maybe the highlight of our visit to Munich. The bus was a very nice, comfortable, and quiet double decker with W/C. Our guide, Uta, was terrific, very nice and spoke very good English. She gave good information along the way, and seemed to really enjoy showing people around. The trip itself was amazing - the countryside on the way is absolutely breathtaking. The Eagle's Nest itself is small, but has a restaurant and patio seating, which on a nice day would be just about one of the best beer spots around. Hiking around the rocks above the Eagle's Nest is a must.
This tour is essentially purchasing your bus trip up and back, along with the guide and driver's time. You still have to pay extra (I think 13 Euros) for the other bus at the site itself that takes you up to the Eagle's Nest and the elevator trip up (which is also pretty cool). That bus trip (from the base of the mountain up) is incredible. Note that there are some pretty sheer drops at the side of this one lane road, so if you're height squeamish, you may want to let someone else have the window.
We made good enough time on the mountain that we were able to make a quick stop in Berchetsgaden, which is a super cute town, relatively untouched by the war, so it's still a bit of a time warp.
Overall, I'd highly recommend this trip!
I was just happy that I made it to this place. The views from the top are stunning especially if you are fortunate to get a clear day. The information at the documentation centre and the bunker all adds up to this historically important place.
A wonderful trip! We had beautiful clear sunny weather so the view from the Eagle's Nest was fantastic. Everything was very well organised and the tour guide, Charles, was great.
This tour was out of sight! Our guide was exceptional and the trip to the Eagle's Nest was nothing short of spectacular! The weather was incredible and I was told that days like that only occur about ten times a year. The steep mountain roads provide spectacular views on the way there. If you take the tour of the little museum, make sure to follow the dirt path down the side of the mountain to see the remaining foundations of Hitler's home at the base of the mountain which the allies had ordered to be destroyed.
The tour was well organized. Tour guide was knowledgable and capable of answering all questions relating to the tour. Tour guide also provided insight into the history of the surrounding area that was not necessarily part of the tour. Tour guide and driver were very punctual, professional, and courteous. I feel that the price of the tour was reasonable. I would definately use this company again.
Great tour, scenery fantastic and the history and event fascinating. Guide did a great job. Very knowledgeable and helpful. Thank you
This was my second tour by this operator. The tour was good and informative.
Our tour guide was excellent. He used the time on the bus to tell us about the history and geography. He was very informative. He did what I expected of a tour guide and then more. A stop in Berchtesgaden would have been nice. More time would need to be added. Rather than collect money for the bus ride up to the Eagle's Nest on the tour bus, I would have appreciated it being added to the cost of the trip when purchased. Many people dod not carry much cash these days.
Great trip. I wish we could have seen more of Berchtesgaden. We just drove by. Beautiful views of Bavaria.
Very friendly tour guide. Had a great time and she had plenty of interesting information. Her english was impeccable.
this is another munich must-do. views are spectacular, bus trip will decide whether your a man or mouse!
Good value tour, fantastic views and the bus ride to the Eagle's Nest itself quite an experience. Berchtesgaden/Obersalzburg area is outstandingly beautiful with views across to Lake Konigsee. Managed to find the site of the Berghof but only the retaining wall remains. Would happily visit the area again, only 1.5 hours from Munich.
Excellent excursion and the documentation museum is superb. Pending your interest in the Nazi era try to leave as much time as possible to view the interactive exhibits. Our guide was enthusiastic and well-versed and the day was made even better by the great weather which afforded a clear panorama.
