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.

This was an amazing tour. Eagles Nest really is something to see. We were extremely lucky to have great weather and the views seemed endless. Our tour guide had a great sense of humour and kept us laughing and entertained during our bus journey. Do yourself a favour, if you have the opportunity to take this tour, don't hesitate. It is worth every cent. Memories to last a lifetime.

Our tour guide, Lisa, was very sweet and informative. It was very foggy on the mountain that morning. The fog lifted the last 15 minutes we were there. Berchtesgaden was charming.

A great half day tour, managed with military precision by our guide Walter.
The 'skip the line' component of this tour was very helpful, whisking us past queues for the bus and tickets.
Views are spectacular from the Eagles Nest and we were very fortunate to have clear skies and good visibility. There is enough time to stroll further up the mountain for other panoramic views.
Pleasant lunch stop on the way back in a small Bavarian town whose name I cannot now remember.

This tour was very interesting and informative. Only disappointment was that it poured with rain when we were having lunch so didn't get any photos of Berchtesgaden whichis a pretty town.
