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.

We took this tour in early October. It was well organized and definitely worth it. The weather was beautiful so the scenery in the Alps and the park was breathtaking. The salt mines are a curious mix of history, science and amusement park. Lots of fun. Tour guide Peter, knowledgable and friendly.

This was fantastic! The views on top were gorgeous. Hard to believe that Hitler would spend that much money for a place he never slept at due to his fears.

Overall, It's quite impressive! Seat on the right side on the red bus that takes you up to the Eagle's Nest if you wish you see/capture the best scenic shots! ... At times you feel a bit rushed to get the most out of the morning itinerary, but once you have left the Eagle's Nest it becomes a bit relaxed. A must though! - Do stick to the time allotted for each activity!

Met at easily designated area where we boarded bus on time....did 3 tours in one day and everything went smoothly. Good guide for all tours and everything happened as planned. Salt Mines were extremely fun. WE did have a little rain for Eagle's Nest but we really wanted to see the building. Once up there everything was fogged in so we did not see any mountains or views that was the only disappointment, but no one could be blamed for that. Still thoroughly enjoyed the place and the history ....recommended for adults.....we were able to have enough time to walk all around outside and inside on our own and sit and have a drink/dessert before it was time to leave. Good time allowed. Enjoyed the stop in the small town also and just sat and had a dessert and relaxed after walked a few streets and looking in windows.
