What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Eagle's Nest and Bavarian Alps Tour from Salzburg

See typical Bavarian houses on your private tour!

Begin your private tour with pickup from your hotel in central Salzburg. Hop aboard your coach and journey through a gorgeous pastoral landscape as you cross into Germany with your guide.

Arrive at Obersalzberg, the site of Hitler’s residential complex. After venturing up the mountain road, travel by foot through a long tunnel to reach an elevator lined with mirrors, leather and brass, and built into the mountain during World War II. Step inside and soar up into the Eagle’s Nest.

Boasting an elevation of 6,017 feet (1,834 meters), the retreat was rarely used by Hitler and today is famous for its stunning views. Wander the property and the summit of Obersalzberg to overlook the snowy landscape of the Bavarian and Austrian Alps. While you take photos and admire the scenery, your guide will provide insightful commentary regarding the site.  

Afterward, visit Berchtesgaden, a historic town dating back to 1102 and the former outpost of the Third Reich. Today the recreational spot is lovely to explore, and you’ll have just under an hour to wander, relax and purchase lunch.

Your private tour will conclude with transportation back to your hotel in Salzburg.

The best tour ever, had the most amazing guide all decked out in his Austrian outfit, his knowledge was outstanding and being a private tour made it just that little bit more special. The scenery in Salzburg has to be seen to believe, we saw mountains, green hills and beautiful lakes, what else could you ask for. A tour we would highly recommend to anybody

Beautiful scenery. We love the private tours because they are geared towards us. If we want to stay longer at one thing, we can. If we aren't as interested in another, we can leave at any time. Definitely recommend this trip!

Our tour guide, Johannes was awesome. He picked us up at our hotel, right on time. He had great insight on the areas on the way to Eagle's Nest. He REALLY took care of us. He made sure that we had priority before others waiting in line and made us feel like VIPs! After the main tour, he also took us to a very special section the diesel engine that propels the elevator that is not open to the public and was kind enough to take pictures of us. He then took us to town for shopping and lunch. He recommended the Golden Bear, which was delicious. He even took us right before the other tour buses came, so we beat the crowds. On the way back to the hotel, he stopped by a convenience store for us so we could get water and snacks for the hotel. Eagle's Nest is a must see. The view is breathtaking. Yes, it's quite a hike. I'm very out of shape but was able to hike to the top to admire the view. Take this tour, you'll only be sorry if you don't!
