What You Can Expect

Salzburg Super Saver: Bavarian Mountains including Eagle's Nest and Salt Mines

Bavarian Mountains and Salt Mines from Salzburg

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.

Shoot up to the top of the mountain in an original brass elevator, where you'll witness incredible views the countryside stretched out before you. Afterward, take a 45-minute break to purchase lunch at one of the nearby restaurants before rejoining with your guide for the second part of your tour.

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.

The guides were very professional, organized, and helpful. It would have been nicer to spend a bit more time in Konigsee and Berchtesgaden, but we did get to cover a lot of ground during this trip.

Fantastic day trip tour and a must if you are in Salzburg. The coach ride to the Eagle's Nest was relaxing with breathtaking views of the country side and the Alps the Eagle's Nest was as good as advertised with incredible views of the valley and alps with enough time to drink beer. Salt Mines was a surprising bright spot informative on how salt is extracted from the Earth and the miner's slide is well worth it. Berchtesgaden a charming mountain town to grab a nice Bavarian lunch and a ,5l of beer just wish we had a little more time at the Konigsee but still worth it to grab a gelato and take a quick hike around the lake. Our guide Lisa was knowledgeable providing interesting information of both the areas we were visiting and the surrounding countryside. Lisa and our bus driver Ivo teamed up to make the trip lighthearted and fun. On the way back to Salzburg Lisa took the time to talk to each of us individually to answer questions and provide recommendations of sights and restaurants in Salzburg. Would definitely recommend to friends.

A stunning day out in the Bavarian Mountains, such a spectacular and not to be missed part of the world. The Eagle's Nest is a must see and we were lucky to have stunning weather. The organisation to the top of the mountain was well executed. Lunch in the village of Berchtesgaden was excellent. However we were not told that we were returning there later in the day and so rushed around taking photos to see all we could in the time when we could have had a more leisurely lunch and looked around further in the afternoon. The visit to the salt mines was good and different to salt mines I had visited in Poland.

This was a fantastic tour and the highlight of our trip. The guide was so so, but going to the Eagle's Nest was an amazingly beautiful site. The bus was comfortable and we all enjoyed the trip very much.
