Eagles Nest in Berchtesgaden Tour from Salzburg

Eagle's Nest Tour from Salzburg

A special kind of adventure awaits you on this excursion to Bavaria - Berchtesgaden. Once you pass the hunting castle, Hellbrunn, you will cross the Austrian-Bavarian border. Continue through the fairytale scenery, along the Konigsee River Valley, through the Bavarian mountains spotted with romantic farmhouses.

Once the tour reaches Obersalzberg the mountain housing, the elevator will take you to Eagle's Nest, so that the highlight of your journey begins. You will be transported to Eagle's Nest by both elevator and bus. The adventurous bus ride along the steep rock walls and deep gorges takes about 20 minutes and provides breathtaking views across the Alps. The buses are equipped with special engines and brakes to enable them to safely transport you through such treacherous terrain.

During the journey you will have a splendid view up to the "Hoher Goll" and across the snowcapped peaks of the Bavarian Mountains. From the 365 foot (111 meter) elevator you will enter Eagle's Nest at an altitude of 5,000 feet (1,524 meters), where you will be able to see the place where Hitler once lived and held meetings with the former Nazi party.

On the way down contented faces are proof of a successful excursion, with many guests returning again and again to Eagle's Nest. Afterwards you have the chance to regain your strength with some Bavarian specialties.

First day we were snowed out in September!. The second day worked and we had an excellent tour guide Walter. The local tour company, Panorama, was very accommodating when we had to reschedule for a different day. Veryty enjoyable and interesting day.

Spectacular view and history. Nice opportunity for lunch and shopping in the pretty town of Berchtesgaden as well. Guide was knowledgable. Great trip if you are interested in the history or just want a spectacular view.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Logistics were perfect: on time and smooth despite the large number of people on the tour. Our guide, Walter, was very entertaining. It had snowed the night before on the top of the mountain so the panorama view was not possible...but the snow was pretty neat. As one lady from Australia remarked..'first time I have ever seen snow'. A very enjoyable experiencce for myself and my American friends.

Good tour. Wish the weather at the crest was less cloudy and we could see more but you can't help that. Tour director was knowledgable and entertaining.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Very good tour, our tour guide was very knowledgable. They gave us plenty of time at the eagles nest. Berchtesgaden was a nice little town and we had a very good lunch there. Ride up to eagles nest is a little scary if you have issues with heights!
