Berchtesgaden mountains & Eagle's Nest Tour

by Gray Line Munich Non-refundable No booking or credit card fees
Price Not Available

Driving on the German Alpine Road takes you past some glorious landscapes and breathtaking mountains, far from the bustle of Munich city centre. Peaks towering over 2,000 metres (6,500 feet) high surround the charming town of Berchtesgaden. Head up the Kehlstein spur of the Hoher Göll to visit the infamous Eagle's Nest.

The picture-perfect town of Berchtesgaden, with its charming alleys and former royal palace, is one of the most enchanting places in Bavaria. The idyllic scenery of the surrounding pine-covered mountains hides a dark history: this area was the official retreat of Nazi leaders.

You have the option to visit the NS Documentation Centre at Obersalzberg, a first-rate museum focussed on the Third Reich. Visitors also have access to the adjacent Nazi bunker system.

You can also visit Eagle's Nest, a chalet-style building erected high atop the Kehlstein. It was intended as a 50th-birthday present to Adolf Hitler, to serve as his retreat as well as a place to entertain visiting dignitaries. During the winter months, when roads may be blocked by snow, you can instead drop in to see the impressive salt mines of the area.
