What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Eagle's Nest and Bavarian Alps Tour from Salzburg

See typical Bavarian houses on your private tour!

Begin your private tour with pickup from your hotel in central Salzburg. Hop aboard your coach and journey through a gorgeous pastoral landscape as you cross into Germany with your guide.

Arrive at Obersalzberg, the site of Hitler’s residential complex. After venturing up the mountain road, travel by foot through a long tunnel to reach an elevator lined with mirrors, leather and brass, and built into the mountain during World War II. Step inside and soar up into the Eagle’s Nest.

Boasting an elevation of 6,017 feet (1,834 meters), the retreat was rarely used by Hitler and today is famous for its stunning views. Wander the property and the summit of Obersalzberg to overlook the snowy landscape of the Bavarian and Austrian Alps. While you take photos and admire the scenery, your guide will provide insightful commentary regarding the site.  

Afterward, visit Berchtesgaden, a historic town dating back to 1102 and the former outpost of the Third Reich. Today the recreational spot is lovely to explore, and you’ll have just under an hour to wander, relax and purchase lunch.

Your private tour will conclude with transportation back to your hotel in Salzburg.


Please note: Entrance fees to the Kehlsteinhaus are not included in the tour price and have to be paid on the day (approx. 16.10 euros per adult and 9.30 euros per child).
