Overview

Visit the Eagle’s Nest in Berchtesgaden, Adolf Hitler’s famous mountaintop retreat, on this day trip from Munich. Travel by air-conditioned coach through Bavaria’s lush mountainscapes, and ride a bus and elevator to the lodge, 6,148 feet (1,834 meters) up Mt Kehlstein. See where Hitler entertained dignitaries, view the hall where weddings and conferences were staged, and explore the terrace to admire the spectacular Alpine views — vistas that Hitler, ironically, found challenging due to his vertigo. In the event of bad weather, you will visit the world-famous Berchtesgaden salt mines instead.

Our guide Katerina was beyond excellent. She made the ride so enjoyable and she filled most of the ride with facts /history on Germany specific areas we were passing. She had the entire tour ticking like a clock, very precise.
While at the Eagles Nest she even volunteered to take us to a few additional sites at the base of the Nest. She was WONDERFUL

The drive there was amazing. The view from Eagle's Nest was beautiful. Limited area you actually get to see of Hitler's area. Worth a visit though!

Berchtesgaden and Eagles Nest tour was great!
Only thing was that after a 3 1/2 hour bus ride, there was only 1/2 hour in Berchtesgaden and 2 hours at Eagles Nest.
Would have preferred more time in Berchtesgaden.
Tour guide was Ulrich and he was a good guide.

The drive was beautiful. The twenty euro per per person additional cost to go up to the Eagle's Nest was pricy for what you got to see, but a great view. Too much time spent at the first little stop, with limited things to see and do. Not enough time allowed at Berchtesgasden. It was the highlight of the trip, but we we only had about 45 minutes there to for a really nice village.

We had a nice trip to the Eagle's Nest with our expert tour guide. She was pleasant and resourceful and especially valuable because she helped us skip the very long lines at the Eagle's Nest so we could get to the top of the tower quickly. The best part of the whole tour is really the scenery, so it's best to try to go on a clear, sunny day. There are not many actual buildings or historical artifacts that remain (for good reason) but the significance of the area to WWII history is apparent. My only qualm is that our tour guide talked pretty much the whole bus ride there and back. I would have liked some more down time on the bus, but otherwise it was well orchestrated and a nice day outside the city.

This tour was absolutely magnificent! Ursula was on of the most knowledgeable and impressive tour guides weve ever had. She provided us with a running commentary both to and from Berchtesgaden, which felt as if we were given a bonus driving tour of Munich and the beautiful German countryside! When we arrived at the Eagles Nest, the weather wasnt great. But, we are convinced her positive energy forced the clouds to part so we could have periods of beautiful views. Ursula did go abound and beyond when she brought us on a short hike through the woods to see the remains of the Residence Farm House. There, she delivered a heartfelt presentation not the impact of the war to Germany. We understand this topic is a very sensitive one to German, but we were particularly impressed with her ability to give perspective in such a heartfelt and genuine way. To top off a truly remarkable day, she recommended we visited a nearby Augustine Biergarten - the oldest in Munich. This ended up being one of our favorite experiences! Such a great recommendation. Overall, this tour was well timed, well excecuted, and SUPERBLY guided by Ursula. Highly recommend his experience for anyone visiting Munich.

Also, I cant remember the bus drivers name - but he deserves some recognition - The roads leading up to Berchestgarden were very windy, steep, and scary. I would never attempt this drive by myself, but he made it look easy!
