Eagle’s Nest

Begin your tour in central Salzburg, where you’ll meet up with your guide and venture through the Bavarian Mountains aboard your coach. Travel past Untersberg Mountain, featured in the opening and final scenes of The Sound of Music. Enjoy the stunning landscape of the Alps as you journey to Germany’s Obersalzberg, where the former mountain retreat of Hitler is located.

Shoot up to the top of the mountain in an original brass elevator, where you'll witness incredible views the countryside stretched out before you. Afterward, take a 45-minute break to purchase lunch at one of the nearby restaurants before rejoining with your guide for the second part of your tour.

Salt Mines

After a relaxing lunch, explore the salt mines situated beneath Obersalzberg. Slip on authentic mining wear and travel down into the grottos on the same slide used by the miners.

Discover the underground world dating back 450 years, and learn about the mines' rich history and the stories of its workers. Sail across the scenic salt lake and enjoy a train ride before ascending back to the surface.

Continue to Königssee, a glacial lake situated among the surrounding mountains. Soak up some free time to explore the area on your own before stopping at the town of Berchtesgaden to roam the streets and local shops. Your tour will conclude with transportation back to Salzburg.

Overall I enjoyed the tour and would have done it again. The Eagle’s Nest was exactly what I was hoping it would be. Although I really enjoyed the Eagle's Nest, I will warn you. We only got to spent 45 minutes on the mountain. Firstly, let me say...the views....Wow. We spent the whole 45 minutes enjoying the views and taking pictures from the dozens and dozens of photo opportunities. We walked pretty high but there was so more to see and do. I would have liked a bit more time up there. I understand why though, there was a lot to do today, so I wasn't angry about it. But, if YOU like hiking or taking your time you won't be happy with this tour. The German town we stopped at was very quaint and beautiful. It is like walking through Duloc in Shrek. You will have time to eat a great German meal and have some gelato too. Just walking through the little town was enjoyable. The Salt Mines were nice. There were two really cool things about it. First, the slides in the mine were a lot of fun. Second, the water/boat ride at the end of nice. They turned off lights while we went along the salt cave and flashed lights. Overall, it is worth it and you learn a lot.

The tour was organized very well. Walter was a very funny tour guide and kept us entertained and informed about all the places that we visited. We loved the salt mine experience as it was really unique and well thought out. The view and ride to Eagle’s Nest was very picturesque. The village where we stopped for lunch had good restaurants and stores to explore.

We were able to visit the Eagle's Nest on a very hot but picture perfect day. As a history buff I enjoyed the information our guide, also a history buff gave us. But sometimes you had to tease it out of him. My wife also enjoyed the packed out day of adventure and exploring, but felt it was a bit lacking in instructions at times. Our bus driver was great fun too. Highly recommended, especially the addition of the Berchtesgaden salt mines.

Eagles Nest, berchtesgaden, Konigsee

Thought it was pricey, but the moment we arrived at the Eagles Nest and saw the queues, realised that the tour was worth every penny and we were glad we had booked the tour rather than hired a car and done it ourselves. Walter, our guide, was amazing. We did the full day tour, and ideally, we would have liked more time at Eagles Nest and Konigsee, but the day already ended at 6pm. Walter gave brilliant tips on how to make the most of the limited time you had at each place. Air conditioned coach was welcome. The salt mines tour was really informative and interesting. Well worth it.

Fast paced but good
Kalie_B

Great guide, well organized pickup. Only knocking down a star because the pace was a little too fast to enjoy everything, and the guide left you at the salt mine with little instructions so it was a little overwhelming to try to figure out when and how to meet again. Otherwise great tour if you want to see a lot in one day.

Climbing the mountains
Maureen_W
, Jul 2022
The Bavarian mountains are very picturesque and photogenic. Lots of steps up from the Eagle's Nest, but take your time, some of the stones are polished smooth and the wild flowers are so pretty, covered in bees. Masks required on German buses and the tunnel and elevator to the Eagle's Nest. Remember your passport as you are leaving Austria. The salt mines I felt let the day down. Suits were provided which kept you warm underground. However the hand held audios were dull and hard to hear while the guide was speaking in German to rest of the group. Could have done with more time in Lake Konigsee. Very pretty. Lots of shops and ice cream available but not time for a boat ride

I guess due to some limitations, you really cannot go to the sight. Instead look at it from afar while your tour guide explained and revisited the scenes of the movie. But overall, it was enlightening. I wouldn’t have known where to go without the tour.

Amazing tour!

What an amazing selection of tours to fill a perfect day! First, the weather was absolutely perfect which offered amazing views from the Eagles Nest and Bavarian Alps. Our guide, Walter, was an excellent narrator and story teller and had such a great sense of humor. Moving from one aspect of the tours to the next event was seamless. We had plenty of time to have lunch and shop in Berchtesgaden. The salt mine tour was incredible with an awesome train deep into the mine and also two super fun slides miners use to get down many levels of the mine. We even road a boat across a clear under ground lake. This really is a great tour that should not be missed.

Amazing tour and sights. A great introduction to the region.
Lee_S

This was an excellent tour of the region, well organised and friendly knowledgable guide. Eagles nest was amazing and we were lucky with the weather. The salt mines has prohibited photography but very interesting. Berchtesgaden we visited again the following day, lovely scenery and shops, food was excellent. Konigsee was the final part and has some stunning views, the boat trips are a couple of hours so will be going again for these

Must do! Eagles Nest (up with the original elevator), snacks in Berchtesgaden, Salt Mines (includes train and slides inside the mine) and Königssee (had time for a boat ride on the lake). Very informative, very well organised. Absolutely recommend it!!!!!!

This trip was worth the money. We did the full day trip and we enjoyed our Guide Walter, he was knowledgeable and funny. We enjoyed skipping the lines at the Eagles nest (be sure to have cash they don't accept credit cards). Lunch felt rushed the recommended restaurant took too long to serve us, we barely finished our food. The kids (8,10,18) really enjoyed the salt mines. One of the workers at the gift shop refused to let us in because we weren't wearing FFP2 masks while she was not wearing one either -when I mentioned it she got very rude and said she could cause she worked there! Don't understand her logic but I'm probably better off without their overpriced tourist crap anyway. Ended the tour at kings lake-just beautiful! I'd definitely recommend this tour!!
