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.

Fantastic guide who was very informative and was funny in the correct areas. Coach was very, very hot with no Air Conditioning

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.

Ursula was our tour guide, she was very informative & a nice lady. The video on the return trip was monotone which put many people asleep; wish that could have been more like a Netflix documentary- interesting vs boring.

Great Views and Tour Guide

We absolutely loved our tour. Our tour guide, Ursula, was fabulous. She was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and engaging. She made sure we had time to see all the sights, enjoy a nice lunch, and she even gave us a little tour of Berchtesgaden. This was one of our favorite activities of our entire trip, and we would definitely recommend it!

Getting to see the view and all the interesting facts we learned. Elizabeth, our tour guide was awesome!! It’s clear she loves her job! She wrote down all the meeting times in big numbers on her clipboard and we took a picture of it so we were certain of when we needed to meet up. What a great day!!

We were very fortunate to have a beautiful day for our trip. Our guide Ursula was very friendly and knowledgeable. She gave us greet information not only about Betchtesgarden and the Eagles Nest, but about Munich itself, pointing out sites of importance.

It was the first day of the season that the Eagle's Nest was open. Our tour guide, Ursala, was FANTASTIC. Her English was perfect and she did an amazing job at explaining all the historic places we passed on the drive to the Obersalsburg. We had plenty of time to look around at everything once we arrived. Our driver Tomas was excellent as well. One of the best tours I have taken.

Okay I guess, the tour guide was nice and knew her information but there was just something lacking, we only drove through Berchtesgaden and the eagles nest was fogged in. So a little disappointing overall.

This trip is very reliant on the weather and, unfortunately, we were not lucky! However, Elizabeth, our guide was very knowledgable and gave us so much information. She was also very clear about additional places she could take us to and the walking that would be required!

Very informative and beautiful journey through the Bavarian Alps. Elisabeth has a wealth of knowledge about the Nazi era. An added bonus was her overview of Munich as we rode through town. Karin is an excellent bus driver. Highly recommended!
