    What to Expect
    Meet your guide in Mirabellplatz in central Salzburg. Hop aboard your coach and begin your journey, passing the historic Hellbrunn Castle before crossing the border into Bavaria. Gaze out at the alpine scenery as you travel along the Konigsee River Valley and mountains peppered with farmhouses.

    Arrive at the mountainside hamlet of Obersalzburg. Snake up the scenic road on a brief shuttle ride, passing the mountain of Hoher Göll. Then, debark and step inside a World War II-era elevator made from brass, which once transported Hitler’s guests to the Eagle’s Nest. At the top, bypass the crowds with a direct access ticket and enter the complex.

    Built for Hitler’s 50th birthday, wander the site with your guide, learning the history behind it as you go. Soak up the incredible views as you look out from a perch of some 5,000 feet (1,524 meters) above ground.

    Afterward, visit the charming town of Berchtesgaden to explore independently and purchase lunch. Your half-day excursion will conclude with drop-off at your original departure point in Salzburg.

    Our tour guide Walter was a bit cranky. Not sure if it was because of the second to last day of this tour (closed Nov 3). The audio on the bus wasn’t good - they spoke so fast between languages and it was muffled so we didn’t really benefit from much of what he had to say. I

    Weather was perfect for this kind of trip to mountains. It was sunny so views were breathtaking. Person who is interested in history (especially WW2) should visit this place. Professional guide. Organisation level for the trip 10/10. Recommend.

    We went on this tour on a really overcast day and cold. The weather was not something that could be changed and we missed some of the scenery, but the eagles nest was impressive and worth the visit. The salt mines was interesting though once Leo, our guide, had to turn us over

    The Eagle's Nest seemed like a checkpoint (along with Dachau today) for us to get a better perspective of the Evil in the 1930s-1945. The guide was functional. He told his stories and jokes and then turned on recorded, random classical music. We switched buses and guides when

    We took this tour from Salzburg instead of Munich. We loved Leo and his tour of Eagle's Nest. He was an energetic and fun guide who gave great details and information about local history (although he perpetuates the statement that Eagle's Nest was a birthday present and all
