This tour is a package of superlatives

This tour goes to the Bavarian mountanis and Obersalzberg with Eagle’s Nest. The road up to Eagle’s Nest  is a milestone in the history of road construction in alpine regions and unique in the world.

Via a tunnel you then get to the brass elevator which takes you inside the mountain straight up 124 m in only 42 seconds. At 1834 m (6017 ft) above sea level you will have a breathtaking panoramic view (with fine weather up to 200 km!).

“Eagles Nest” itself is an architectural master piece with some meters thick base walls situated on a ridge on top of the Kehlstein mountain. It was part of the Obersalzberg military complex where Hitler frequently met foreign and domestic officials. Thus it is inseparably linked with World War II and its history. Now it is used as a restaurant.

From approx. 20th Oct until the beginning/middle of May (when, depending on the weather, Eagle’s Nest is closed) you will visit in addition to the Obersalzberg region the Obersalzberg Documentation centre.

You can reflect on the beauty and magnificence or the historical importance of all you have seen on the way back through the picturesque countryside. If time allows we even will do a stop at  Berchtesgaden town.

Eagle’s Nest is open from approx. the beginning of May until approx. 20th October (weather depending).
The Obersalzberg Docoumentation Centre is open every day (Apr – Oct), Tue – Sun (Nov – March). Closing days 1st Jan, 1st Nov, 24th, 25th, 31st Dec.
A visit to the Documentation Centre is not recommended for children under the age of 12.
