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.

What You Can Expect

Berchtesgaden and Eagle's Nest Day Tour from Munich

Eagle's Nest, Germany

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.

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.
