Overview

Explore WWII’s Nazi remnants on Germany’s Obersalzberg more comprehensively than if alone on this small-group tour from Salzburg. While most excursions focus on Hitler’s mountaintop Eagle’s Nest lodge, this tour also covers the forested, ruin-studded slopes below. See the remains of Hitler’s chalet, Nazi leaders’ homes and bunkers as your guide shares insight you could otherwise miss. Then, follow the path taken by liberating US forces in 1945 by hiking to the Eagle’s Nest to absorb its history and views.
  • Eagle’s Nest and Nazi ruins of the Obersalzberg hike tour from Salzburg
  • Dig deeper into the mountain’s war story with a guide and tour of the ruins
  • See crumpled Nazi houses and bunkers and hike up to the Eagle’s Nest
  • Small group for personal experience, plus return transport for ease

Very enjoyable tour

This was an amazing tour and our guide Claudio was great- i learnt so much about the history of the area which was fascinating. The hike up is a nice way up the mountain where it’s not so busy. I definitely recommend this tour if you want a unique less touristy experience of the eagles nest!

Fabulous guided hike in Berchtesgaden

I loved this tour. The brilliant, intelligent and fascinating guide took our very small group on a journey up to the Eagle’s Nest. Although the day I went was grey, and views were limited to as far as you can reach with your hand, somehow Claudio made it an unforgettable, educational and enchanting day.

Dear Sarah, thank you for trusting us with a day of your holidays and happy to hear you had a great day in the mountain. Welcome back anytime. Greetings from the Alps. Claudio

Claudio was a great source of information and made the experience very personable. By being able to hike to Eagles Nest it allowed our group to appreciate what it would have been like to be with the Allied forces in those final days of the war. We were also fortunate to have perfect weather …so a great way to see the stunning views of the Alps.

Awesome hike with some history

My teenage boys and I had a fun and informative hike with our guide Paulina. She was genuinely engaging…which is important for this hike as you spend 9 hours with your guide. We completed the initial hike up the mountain to the Eagles Nest elevator in just over 2 hours. Bring lots of water and a snack! Would rate this a moderate level of difficulty given the length and incline. Scenery and views got more interesting as we climbed higher. At the top we had a tasty lunch and a beer at the restaurant. Really enjoyed the personalized experience and sense we were seeing things that not every visitor was getting to experience.

Amazing trip from start to finish. Guides are super knowledgable and organised. Hiking was good fun!- not too easy, not too challenging. Weather was perfect on the mountain. And the views - spectacular. As a history teacher, I usually know most of the stuff your guides share. But these guys had me beat completely on WW2 history. Highly recommended!

Hi Joe, so pleased to hear you had a good time in the mountains. We love to take you off the beaten path and share not so we'll know facts. Till next time. Claudio.

Had the most amazing experience of my life! Had set myself a personal challenge and managed to see it through! Claudio was amazing as he explained everything so lucidly and Polina was very considerate and made me go at my own pace and made sure I was comfortable the whole way . All in all , it was an extremely memorable experience and I’m definitely going to recommend this tour . 😊

Our guide, Paulin, was great. She was friendly, caring and knowledgeable. Two hours of hiking was not challenging, just moderate. The view from the path to the top was fantastic. The ruins of Hitler's house were impressive.

Quite a strenuous hike, but totally worth it. Beautiful views, birds singing and the smell of the forest. A lot of history narratives by the guide.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Hi Timothy, thank you for your kind words. I am happy to hear you had a good experience even though the hike was strenuous. Most people visiting would never think to go up by foot but you gain so much more as you can experience the nature and earn the views at the top. Welcome back anytime. Greetings from the Alps.

Walking on the ground that Hitler walked, seeing a field of buttercups that used to barracks for 3,000 SS, taking that sumptuous elevator to the Eagle’s Nest, making the hike right to the elevator

Finding history was never more fun
Darren

A dream of mine to find the Berghof and the Eagles nest in the Bavarian alps. This came true today! The eagles nest was closed but the day didn't disappoint. Claudio is a great guide full of passion and information and I couldn't have wished for a better partner to tackle the mountain. Lots of hidden history was found and also some sore knees and feet. Just the best day, thank you Caludio.

Hi Darren, thank you that you took time to leave a review and for the five stars. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the mountain and all the historical locations. Feel free to always come back. Until then keep calm and keep on stretching ;) Greeting. Claudio
