Visit Kehlsteinhaus, better known as the Eagle’s Nest, on a half-day tour from Salzburg. Journey through the spectacular scenery of Königsee River Valley and the Bavarian Alps to Obersalzberg, and then continue to the clifftop Eagle’s Nest by shuttle bus and elevator. After bypassing the crowds with a skip-the-line ticket, tour Hitler’s former retreat with a knowledgeable guide, and soak up the alpine views before returning to Salzburg.

Highlights

  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • All entrance fees included
Meet at Mirabellplatz, and travel from Salzburg to the Bavarian Alps. Your route takes in idyllic scenery alongside notable sights, so gaze out as you travel to see Hellbrunn Castle, the Königsee River Valley and mountains dotted with farmhouses.

Stop at Obersalzberg, a mountainside hamlet near Berchtesgaden. Then, relax on a 20-minute shuttle bus journey and admire the surrounding alpine beauty as you snake your way up a cliff-clinging pass. Worry not: your bus has special brakes to cope with the terrain.

Cast your eyes across to the mountain of Hoher Göll, and then step aboard a brass elevator, which was built to shuttle Hitler’s guests through the cliffs to Eagle’s Nest. Hop out at the top to head straight inside with your skip-the-line ticket.

As you explore with your guide, see the spots where Hitler hosted his meetings and learn all about the site, which was built for the Nazi leader’s 50th birthday. Perched at an altitude of some 5,000 feet (1,524 meters), the Eagle’s Nest boasts handsome views and your guide will point out the finest vantage points.

After an hour, return to your coach by elevator and bus. Stop in Berchtesgaden for lunch (own expense), and then return to Salzburg.

    We met the bus at the Mirabellplatz in town, a full size bus not a shuttle. Really knowledgeable guide who pointed out places of interest on the way and provided great information at the site. When we reached the base of the mountain we switched to other full size buses which made their winding way up the mountain. At the top we walked into the mountain where there was a large polished brass elevator, which the guide informed us could hold about 50 people, but because Hitler was claustrophobic he only allowed 3 or 4 others and the highly polished brass made the space seem bigger. Fortunately the weather was good and not cloudy. They close this tour in Oct or Nov depending on the weather. At the top the view was phenomenal. The building is stone on the outside with beautiful woodwork inside. There is a restaurant inside also. Outside there is a huge patio, places to sit and a small hut where you can get hot chocolate and souvenirs.
