Eagle’s Nest
Begin your tour in central Salzburg, where you’ll meet up with your guide and venture through the Bavarian Mountains aboard your coach. Travel past Untersberg Mountain, featured in the opening and final scenes of The Sound of Music. Enjoy the stunning landscape of the Alps as you journey to Germany’s Obersalzberg, where the former mountain retreat of Hitler is located.

Salt Mines
After a relaxing lunch, explore the salt mines situated beneath Obersalzberg. Slip on authentic mining wear and travel down into the grottos on the same slide used by the miners.

Discover the underground world dating back 450 years, and learn about the mines' rich history and the stories of its workers. Sail across the scenic salt lake and enjoy a train ride before ascending back to the surface.

Continue to Königssee, a glacial lake situated among the surrounding mountains. Soak up some free time to explore the area on your own before stopping at the town of Berchtesgaden to roam the streets and local shops. Your tour will conclude with transportation back to Salzburg.

This tour was amazing and a must to see. Eagles Nest was so incredible to experience. It was a bit foggy at the bottom, but by the time we got uo to the top we were above the clouds looking down at them. The Bavarian Alps were spectacular to see. It reminded me of the Switzerland Alps. The Salt mines was by far better than I expected. We got to slide down a shoot and take a boast ride down in the mines. It was a blast.

There is good and bad. The bad first-- because we went on a day it was raining, there was only foggy and snowy view from the top. That said, the good or the best part was the entire trip. Carlos our guide for the trip shared some interesting nuggets of history regarding the Eagles Nest this put the whole ride to the top in context. Eagles Nest is a well maintained place and what used to be probably Hitler's recreational hangout is now a well stocked restaurant while maintaining the history bit. As I already mentioned before, the views would have been fantastic but for the rain and snow.But just for history sake,we were fine with the bad weather.

We made a stop for lunch at Berchtesgaden and after that the tour proceeded to Salt Mines. This was quite a hightlight of the tour. We spent one hour plus understanding the entire process of salt mining and extraction. To think that this is a functioning mine which is used to extract salt is definitely worth visiting in addition to some fun rides that we did underground.

After the salt mine tour, we proceed to an idyllic place Konigsee which has the charms and trappings of vacation retreat. We ended the tour with a stop again at Berchtesgaden. All in all a super saver trip indeed for someone who likes history and nature.

Panorama tours was the tour company used for this picturesque and gorgeous backdrop tour. Our guide was Daniel, he was fantastic, professional and very knowledgeable. The lakes we visited were beautiful - the mountains along the way were gorgeous. I wasn't going to do this tour, I'm so happy I changed my mind!!!

It was cold and it started snowing when we were at the Eagle's Nest. Nevertheless, we were able to see the Eagle's Nest. We all enjoyed the Salt Mine.
