Eagles Nest

Berchtesgaden and the Eagles Nest

Spend a Beautiful Day in the Magical Bavarian Alps With Us

On the mountain, in the mountain, or on the lake at the bottom of the mountain – some of your choices on this wonderful trip to the far southeast corner of Germany. A bus trip up the Kehlstein mountain to the Eagles Nest is the cornerstone of this tour. Built as a 50th birthday present to Adolf Hitler, this ‘tea house’ is now a mountain restaurant offering great views of a splendid alpine landscape. History buffs can also visit the NS Documentation Center at the bus base station.

For those interested in engineering and science, or just for pure family fun, there is the visit to the fantastic salt mine. A straddle train takes you 1.3 km (0.8 mi) into the heart of the salt mining operations. It is still a working mine, 7 stories in all; the tour covers two floors and includes a couple of slides, a flatboat ride on a cave lake, and an interactive learning center.

KoenigsseeIf you prefer staying above ground, the cruise on the crystal-clear waters of the Königssee is for you. The Königssee is an amazing alpine lake that is over 190 m (600 ft) deep! Situated in the only national park in the German Alps and surrounded by towering mountains (including the Watzmann, 3rd highest in Germany), the Königssee is one of the most peaceful places in central Europe. The electric boats take you out to a small peninsula with the pretty church of St. Batholomew, a small park, a restaurant and a beer garden.

Berchtesgaden is one of the true gems of Bavaria, situated in a breathtaking alpine landscape in a small tongue of land surrounded on three sides by Austria. Only 20km away from Salzburg, Bavaria always fiercely defended this mountain resort; the ruling family even built a summer palace in Berchtesgaden. A short visit to the town is possible.
