So happy we signed up for this tour. What an amazing journey up to the Eagles Nest. The actual facility was ok, but the hikes and views up on top were the coolest I have ever seen. Have not stopped talking about this one.

The tour was okay. Sharon, our guide, has a wealth of information, but it was brought in quite a "I've told this a thousand times already" way. If you have only a day to spend in Berchtesgaden, this is probably a good way to spend...More

Firstly don't get this tour confused with the bus tour that runs from Munich, this tour operates from Berchtesgaden itself. It is easy to find across the road from the railway station. I caught the 09.55 train from Munich which arrives in time to take...More

What was the name of the tour you took, was it Eagle's Nest Historical Tours? We are booked on a river cruise Oct 2017 and want to take a side trip of our own to the Eagle's Nest so I'm trying to see if logistics will allow it.

Yes I believe it was. Well worth it. Sorry for delay in answering.
Visiting the Salzburg area in December, are there any tours available to Eagles Nest then?

I would ask direct for confirmation but all the websites say it is closed October through May for weather.
