What You Can Expect

Salzburg Super Saver: Bavarian Mountains including Eagle's Nest and Salt Mines

Bavarian Mountains and Salt Mines from Salzburg

Eagle’s Nest
Begin your tour in central Salzburg, where you’ll meet up with your guide and venture through the Bavarian Mountains aboard your coach. Travel past Untersberg Mountain, featured in the opening and final scenes of The Sound of Music. Enjoy the stunning landscape of the Alps as you journey to Germany’s Obersalzberg, where the former mountain retreat of Hitler is located.

Shoot up to the top of the mountain in an original brass elevator, where you'll witness incredible views the countryside stretched out before you. Afterward, take a 45-minute break to purchase lunch at one of the nearby restaurants before rejoining with your guide for the second part of your tour.

Salt Mines
After a relaxing lunch, explore the salt mines situated beneath Obersalzberg. Slip on authentic mining wear and travel down into the grottos on the same slide used by the miners.

Discover the underground world dating back 450 years, and learn about the mines' rich history and the stories of its workers. Sail across the scenic salt lake and enjoy a train ride before ascending back to the surface.

Continue to Königssee, a glacial lake situated among the surrounding mountains. Soak up some free time to explore the area on your own before stopping at the town of Berchtesgaden to roam the streets and local shops. Your tour will conclude with transportation back to Salzburg.

Panarama Tours does and excellent job. Carlos was a great guide and very entertaining. I did not care for the recommended lunch location, but many people did. The drive up to the Eagles Nest was interesting. Once you get to the visitors center you board a different bus that takes you up the hill. The Eagles nest was interesting, but the restaurant up there was really busy. We ended up getting drinks at the snack bar by the bus area. There was confusion as to which bus to get on to go back down the mountain. The town of Berchesgartens is a lovely town, we enjoyed it more once we left the tourist street. The Salt Mine tour was awesome. It is all about making memories and this one was definitely worth making. We really had a great day. It is a very long day with a lot of walking.

A fantastic tour. The guide was excellent and the countryside travelled through was beautiful. The visit to Eagle's nest was amazing both from the point of its history as well as the wonderful view from the various lookouts. The visit to the salt mines was a load of fun as well as providing us with an insight into the value of salt to Salzburg in its history.

The tour was great except I wasn't impressed with the place recommended for lunch by the tour guide. The golden bear - it was more expensive than in the city and the food was not as good quality. I had the schnitzel and it wasn't as good as other restaurants I tried in town so would suggest another restaurant to eat at for lunch. It was a shame the steps at the top of the eagles nest were not cleared of snow. I was not wearing the right shoes to make it to the top view point and I think the snow could have been easily cleared to let visitors to the top more safely.
