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.

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.

I highly recommend visiting Eagles Nest! The scenery is breathtaking and the history of Eagles Nest makes the location so much more meaningful. I do strongly recommend that you take the tour early in the morning. It was getting very crowded by midday.
