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.

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!

Is a wonderful day trip from Munich. My Tour guide was galloping with joy... as she mentioned that this was her very first time, after few years as a Guide, where the sky was amazing clear 2-3km upon reaching the mountain-foot. Breath-taking sight on the way up with a Special bus... and Wow!, the view was amazingly fantastic.......up there! Have a good walking shoe and SLR camera with U. Such a beautiful scenes.....

Very interesting tour. I looked into getting there on our own and without a car it seemed difficult. It was very foggy so not great views that day but Still able to walk around on trails. Lots of info in documentation center.

Very interesting day trip. Our tour guide had very interesting facts about the area, the history and the destination. Only shame was when we were at the top of the Eagle's Nest there was fog and we couldn't enjoy the amazing views. If you are interested in WW2 history and German politics at the time its worth doing this tour.

The Eagles Nest part of the tour was terrific and totally recommended. From the picturesque scenery that you see on the bus trip through to the breathtaking views experienced once you reach the peak. This is truly amazing and well worthwhile if you have a day with excellent weather which we were fortunate enough to.

To state the obvious, the site also has a history and background that was well explained by the tour guide Elisabeth.

On the return journey the bus also takes you through the Berchtesgaden area which is also very nice but for me, the Eagles Nest part of the tour was a definite highlight.
