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.

My family and I had a great time with Anna on our Private Tour of the Eagle's Nest and the surrounding area. She arrived right on time at our hotel, had impeccable English, a terrific personality, but most importantly great knowledge of the areas we visited. Our first stop was the Eagle's Nest and she was able to get our tickets very quickly and we were off on the next bus. The view from the Eagle's Nest was stunning and the historical significance made it even more awe inspiring. Along the way Anna shared with us the culture and history of Salzburg and the Austrian people. She personalized our tour based on what our family's interest were. She took us for a beautiful hike out to an incredible view of the King's Lake and had a super secret parking spot that got us very close to the trail. From there we had a brief visit to Berchtesgaden which is a beautiful little Bavarian village. The tour was a great value and I highly recommend it.

This was our favorite tour of all three weeks in Europe. The views were amazing and the weather turned out mostly clear. You could see all the way to Salzburg. Our guide was very informative telling all about the Eagle's Nest and the area as it was during the war. He told us about various points of interest in the city as we drove back to our hotel.

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!
