Overview

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. Enjoy time for lunch (own expense) and the option to visit the Nazi Documentation Center Museum.

Fantastic experience! Even in the thick fog, without the panoramic views. Tour guide Elizabeth did an extraordinary job. She went above & beyond & she was very thorough & patient with everyone. Made new friends along the way too! All around great experience. I highly recommend this tour!

Elisabeth has amazing knowledge and shares insights throughout the trip that would be impossible to know otherwise. The views are spectacular upon arrival (and along the way). I also quite enjoyed the drive back along a bit of the German Alpine Road it was the cherry on top of a great day. P.S. The bus was simply fantastic as well and kudos to the driver. Those roads were far from easy!

Fantastic trip to Berchtesgaden and Eagle's Nest

Huge shoutout to the bus driver who handled the trip up to Berchtesgaden and Eagle's Nest with safety and skill. This is no trivial feat! Elizabeth was outstanding all day and I would give her a 10 out of 10 rating. Throughout the entire trip she kept us informed of interesting historical perspective in both German and English. We had plenty of time after the hike up to Eagle's Nest for a fabulous meal, which was much appreciated after the walk. Elizabeth took the time for those who wanted to participate, a walk down to the Berghof area to see the remains of Hitler's bunker and the Turk Haus where she covered historical detail and perspective I have never read or heard. All in all a fabulous day and a very inexpensive day considering the effort put in by Elizabeth.

Professional, polite and an informative guide made this Berchtesgaden and Eagle's Nest Tour a day to remember! On the minus side, there was too little time to spend up on the Eagle's Nest itself.

History and beautiful scenery wrapped in one!

Ursula was a tour guide extraordinaire! She was full of interesting facts and stories, and her knowledge of Eagle's Nest and surrounding areas were impressive. Our family enjoyed getting to know her, and asking her questions. It is a long day (9-10 hours), so if you only have a short time in Bavaria you may want to consider something else.

It rained the day of our tour so the view was not as good as I would have liked. But the tour guide made the best of it and we all had a very pleasant time. It would have been nice if we the tour had reservations for the restaurant at the eagle's nest and we had been informed of this in advance.
