This jaunt to Hitler's mountain retreat with its panoramic views of the Alps appeals to both history buffs and scenery lovers. Reserve some of your free time for enjoying a beer at an authentic Bavarian beer garden.
Due to the World War II bombings by the Royal Air Force, there is little evidence left of Hitler and the Nazi party's presence, however Eagle's Nest still stands.
From mid May to October, you will have the option to take a bus ride up the mountain to see Eagle's Nest for yourself. The last 390 feet (120 meters) of the trip is in a brass-clad elevator. During the winter months or during inclement weather when access to Eagle's Nest is restricted, you will instead visit the world famous Salt Mines. Wearing traditional mining gear you will descend into the depths of the mine where you can see glowing salt grottoes and a subterranean salt lake.
The eagle's nest is a place you can't skip while traveling in Bavaria. The building and the place is full of history, and the view while on top is breathtaking. it is in fact the most beautiful place i have ever seen while travelling.
Outstanding day tour. Guide modified the usual plan to successfully avoid the bad weather at the Eagle's Nest thanks!.

This tour was amazing!
Had a great time, and I enjoyed having the freedom to do what I wanted at the top. Only downside: I would have liked to have more time at the top rather than having almost three hours at the documentation center.
tour guide was excellent, he was very friendly and knew a lot about the area. We had plenty of time along the way to see the area and the Eagles nest. It was very relaxing and I would highly recommend it.
Good trip, well organized, comfortable bus, well informed and professional guide, enjoyed and liked this trip totally.
If you want some history and some amazing views - this is the tour for you!
