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).
The drive into the Bavarian Mountains was absolutely beautiful. Travelling from Australia we just wanted to get into that snow that we were expecting to be everywhere in Europe, but due to the warmest European winter for some time we had to travel up to the mountains to see it and feel it, but it was well worth waiting for. The lakes were so peaceful. Our tour guide Michael could have been a little more talkative.
Guide (Natacha) was amazing - informative and friendly. Great local knowledge, scenery was fantastic.
