What You Can Expect

Eagles Nest in Berchtesgaden Tour from Salzburg

Take a tour of the Eagle's Nest on a day trip from Salzburg

Meet your guide in Mirabellplatz in central Salzburg. Hop aboard your coach and begin your journey, passing the historic Hellbrunn Castle before crossing the border into Bavaria. Gaze out at the alpine scenery as you travel along the Konigsee River Valley and mountains peppered with farmhouses.

Arrive at the mountainside hamlet of Obersalzburg. Snake up the scenic road on a brief shuttle ride, passing the mountain of Hoher Göll. Then, debark and step inside a World War II-era elevator made from brass, which once transported Hitler’s guests to the Eagle’s Nest. At the top, bypass the crowds with a direct access ticket and enter the complex.

Built for Hitler’s 50th birthday, wander the site with your guide, learning the history behind it as you go. Soak up the incredible views as you look out from a perch of some 5,000 feet (1,524 meters) above ground.

Afterward, visit the charming town of Berchtesgaden to explore independently and purchase lunch. Your half-day excursion will conclude with drop-off at your original departure point in Salzburg.

Its beautiful place and worth a visit for historical and scenic reasons... but the best part of my visit was the service provided by Panorama tours - local operator through which Viator had booked my tour! I missed the bus at the start of the tour, but i was taken personally by one of the guides to the next point so i could join the tour!
Thanks a lot for such care and service...
Also our guide Walters was fun and easy going... made the tour much more interesting.

This was a great tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. It was interesting to see Hitlers Eagles Nest, to think it was his place to hold meetings with other high ranking Nazi's to determine the plans of the war. Original rooms, tunnel, elevator, very good. It was great to have time to take the walk and view the spectacular vistas. The time allowed to visit Bechengaden wrong spelling was nice also, this is a great little town, lots of amenities.

Walter was a great guide--pointing out sites as we traveled from Salzburg to Eagles Nest as well as teaching us about Eagles Nest. Beautiful panoramic views from Eagles Nest. Stop in Berchtesgaden on the return allowed time for lunch, or a little shopping, or stroll, in a beautiful Austrian town.

Amazing tour. Terrific weather and perfect day to go to the Eagles Nest. Views were breathless. Would have liked a little more time to spend there. 50 minutes not quite enough time to take it all in.
