UNESCO–listed Salzburg boasts Baroque architecture and centuries of music history, but just outside the city are Alpine peaks, shimmering lakes, and lush forests. Into the Austrian Alps and beyond, read on for our favorite day trips from Salzburg.

Bavarian Alps: Eagle's Nest & Berchtesgaden
Nestled in the heart of the Bavarian Alps—just 18 miles (30 km) from Salzburg—the town of Berchtesgaden is steeped in history. Explore the Eagle's Nest, the remains of Adolf Hitler's Alpine retreat; delve below ground at the area's 450-year-old salt mines, or stroll around town for views over the towering peak of the Watzmann.

The first time that Easy Company part of the 101st. Airborne division reached the hills of Obersalzberg most of the buildings in that area where destroyed. If you visit this area today you will see that a lot has changed, the forest has taken over and a big parking place leads people straight up the mountain. This tour is here to provide you with far reaching insight of the historical locations hidden in the forest, see the ruins of Hitler's house and other WWII sights that will bring history to life. Then hike up from there to the Eagle's Nest and you will following the steps of the first American soldiers that got there by foot in May 1945. Even though the Eagle's Nest is one of the most visited places in Germany our tour will take us thru a more richer and less traveled path. The tour is a mix world history, exercise and incredible landscapes. I take pride in offering the best possible experience to deliver professional and safe guidance in the mountains with a relaxed atmosphere.
