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

Bavarian Mountains and Salt Mines from Salzburg

Eagle’s Nest
Leave Salzburg behind on a comfortable coach with your guide, and begin your day trip by journeying through the Bavarian Alps and along the King’s Lake River. Pass Untersberg Mountain, full of legend and myth, and enter Germany via an old border crossing. After traveling through the alpine valley and passing scenic farmhouses, you will reach the foot of the Obersalzberg, a mountainside complex that is home to the Eagle’s Nest.

From here, hop on a special coach that will take you to the WWII-era brass elevator, which then whisks you up to the Eagle’s Nest, perched on top of the mountain. Enjoy magnificent views of the towering snowcapped peaks of the Bavarian Alps and the surrounding countryside. It is a short walk from here to the cross on the summit of the Obersalzberg.

You’ll have 45 minutes of free time at the Eagle’s Nest to have lunch in one of the restaurants around (own expense).

Salt Mines
Part two of your Super Saver tour begins after lunch. Below Obersalzberg are the 450-year-old salt mines. Walk in miners’ footsteps as you don a traditional mining outfit and descend into the grottos. Hear fascinating tales and learn interesting facts about this underground world from your guide, and then end your mining adventure with a raft sail on the salt lake and a train trip around the lake.

Your tour continues to Königssee (King’s Lake), a lake nestled among the imposing mountains. Stop for a photo opportunity and enjoy some free time to visit the surroundings before heading to the picturesque Bavarian village of Berchtesgaden. Have a little free time to wander along the charming streets before returning to Salzburg.

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.

This was a very good trip and we were lucky to have a view from Eagles nest.....The organisation was very good and the driver excellent. The salt mine was great fun and very informative...It would have been nice to have have a little longer in Konigsee.....Oversll an excellent day....Thanks

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

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!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

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.
