What You Can Expect
Driving along the Konigseeache, through the lovely valley and picturesque farmland to Unterau you will begin to ascend to the Obersalzberg. Here, the tour will stop to catch a glimpse of what is left of Hitler's mountain compound (Hitler's Eagle's Nest) and to enjoy the wonderful panorama.
Next you continue down the Konigsee, or Echo Lake, nestled among the steep mountain peaks. There will be time for a stroll along the lake.
On the return journey back to Salzburg, the coach will stop in Berchtesgaden for a walk around the village and some refreshments (not included).
I absolutely loved it and it was much better than I thought. I was absolutely amazed by mountains and the views. I would recommend it to anyone and would love to go there again.
This wasn't our first pick of tours, but the others were unavailable because of the time of year we went but we are so glad. It was beautiful and I learnt more about the area and the history than I thought i would. We were lucky because although there was snow on the ground it was sunny and warm. Loved it and would highly recommend it.
