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.
