Berchtesgaden and Eagle's Nest Day Tour from Munich
Visit the Eagle’s Nest in Berchtesgaden, Adolf Hitler’s famous mountaintop retreat, on this day trip from Munich. Travel by air-conditioned coach through Bavaria’s lush mountainscapes, and ride a bus and elevator to the lodge, 6,148 feet (1,834 meters) up Mt Kehlstein. See where Hitler entertained dignitaries, view the hall where weddings and conferences were staged, and explore the terrace to admire the spectacular Alpine views — vistas that Hitler, ironically, found challenging due to his vertigo. In the event of bad weather, you will visit the world-famous Berchtesgaden salt mines instead.
What to Expect

Due to the World War II bombings by the Royal Air Force, there is little evidence left of Hitler and the Nazi party's presence, however Eagle's Nest still stands.

From mid May to October, you will have the option to take a bus ride up the mountain to see Eagle's Nest for yourself. The last 390 feet (120 meters) of the trip is in a brass-clad elevator. During the winter months or during inclement weather when access to Eagle's Nest is restricted, you will instead visit the world famous Salt Mines. Wearing traditional mining gear you will descend into the depths of the mine where you can see glowing salt grottoes and a subterranean salt lake.

Rude and unorganised

I did this tour on Monday 14th August, and when I approached the coach with my valid E-ticket, I was received with hostility by the tour guide, who moaned at me and asked why I hadn't printed it off instead, so not a great start....More

tour was misleading

The weather on the day was dreadful which unfortunately did spoil the day. Whilst realising that this was out of the control of the tour company they did not adjust the itinerary on the day to take this into account. The tour title is misleading...More

Eagles Nest Was Great But Not The Bus

We got off to a disorganized start because two buses for two tours were in the same spot with no indication on the bus which was which. Consequently, it was a disorganized mob trying to scramble onto the buses when it was finally announced. The...More

It’s only maybe 10-15 mins up the mountain...steep hills and some definite curves, but it doesn’t go terribly fast.

Yes. Definitely worth it though, I think the walk is around 2 or 3 hours. The bus only took 20 mins.
