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.

Amazing place to visit from Munich. Bus ride was quicker than I thought, but the surrounding land is beautiful to see on your way to Berchtesgaden. Certainly need some weather luck on your side for views on the mountain, but when you do it's gorgeous. Definitely recommend.

The tour was very well planned. The tour guide, Ursula, was very knowledgeable about the history of The Eagle's Nest and presented the information in an interesting and understandable fashion. Her enthusiasm about the historic site, the beautiful little town and the natural features of the area added to the wonderful experience. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Views of the Alps were amazing. Fascinating history lesson. Beautiful town. I only wish it was a bit longer so I could've had a beer in the nest and explored Berchtasgaden a bit more.

A little disappointing
Richard_B
, Jul 2022
The views were amazing, the coach journey comfortable. I was very surprised how little information was given about the destination, Eagles Nest. Nothing about why it was built or when. Nothing about the RAF raid on the area or what happened after the war. There was actually more said about Munich and the scenery than the destination of the tour. I used the journey back to read about the history of the site on google!
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
We in Bavaria have lots more about our history than just 12 horrible years. Had you asked your guide about it? Sometimes we just like to be Bavaria from today and not a freak show about Hitler. Based on the feedback of the rest of the visitors of this day, I understand they enjoyed the presentad part. Why don't you come to one Third Reich tour?

Did you informed your driver, or your guide? They can press the botton down or up, but communication is more effective when you talk to people and this would save your time writing a review here. We are here to help you, but we can't read thoughts.

Ursula was one of the best tour guides I’ve ever had. She started sharing information as soon as we left the departure spot pointing out several areas that we of interest to our group. Her knowledge of the Eagles Nest, Obersalzberg, and Berchtesgaden was impressive. I highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in WW 2 history.

Friendly and Professional Tour - Easy and enjoyable.

Very nice tour. Very friendly and professional tour guide (on the bus) and driver. This was a nice day trip to the Eagles Nest and Berchtestgaden. It is not good for you if you want to linger at these locations, but it is wonderful if you don't want the hassle of driving and finding your way. It's an all day trip with wonderful scenery. It would for you to read up on WW2 and these locations prior to this trip for you to have the proper context, but if you are familiar with the history of the Third Reich, then the information presented is at the correct context. I recommend this tour.
