We met the bus at the Mirabellplatz in town, a full size bus not a shuttle. Really knowledgeable guide who pointed out places of interest on the way and provided great information at the site. When we reached the base of the mountain we switched to other full size buses which made their winding way up the mountain. At the top we walked into the mountain where there was a large polished brass elevator, which the guide informed us could hold about 50 people, but because Hitler was claustrophobic he only allowed 3 or 4 others and the highly polished brass made the space seem bigger. Fortunately the weather was good and not cloudy. They close this tour in Oct or Nov depending on the weather. At the top the view was phenomenal. The building is stone on the outside with beautiful woodwork inside. There is a restaurant inside also. Outside there is a huge patio, places to sit and a small hut where you can get hot chocolate and souvenirs.
Not much up there now but brilliant views from the top
excellent but alpine for always a risk
Well organized and on schedule, would recommend it to everyone. Walter as a guide was quite interesting and funny!
I really enjoyed this tour. The commentary provided was excellent ? Walter. The history of the building and use of the Eagles Nest made for an interesting tour.
Great tour pity the weather wasn't the best
One of the highlights of our trip. The view is absolutely amazing!
Our guide Carlos was not only informative the entire trip but also funny. Highly recommend this trip
This is a brilliant and very interesting tour. You are fabulously well looked after by tour guide Walter and driver Otto with every detail covered from historical facts to the comfort of your journey. I highly recommend this tour and would be delighted to go again
SO glad we booked this tour. Carlos, the tour guide, was entertaining and very knowledgeable. Breathtaking views. You won't be disappointed
