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.

Disappointing tour guide.

The tour started off well, but our tour guide was only going through the motions. She didn’t introduce herself (or if she did I forget her name). The coach trip down and the commentary were fine, but she seemed on run out of steam (or...More

There's only one main train station, Hauptbahnhof (I think it's on Bayerstrasse). The tour departs from outside Karstadt Dept Store on Bahnhof Platz - opposite the Hauptbahnhof.

No you can't drive up there, only take a bus. You can drive to where the bus picks you up and buy your own ticket here
