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.
Awesome! Highly recommend!
Wonderfull guide!! Ursula.
Well worth it.
One of the best experiences you will have in Germany! The views are breathtaking and history with Berchtesgaden and the Eagle's Nest is fascinating. The tour guide was awesome, very knowledgeable and well organized. If you have a day in Munich I highly recommend doing this trip.
We had a fantastic day, and the views from the Egales nest are amazing.
The views are breathtaking and if you want to know more about Hitler and World War 2 then this is a must do trip.
Great views and interesting museum
We were fortunate to make this tour on a bright and sunny day. The views were spectacular. Our guide Peter was excellent. His insight and knowledge made the long ride from Munich very enjoyable.
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!.
