Discover the reasons behind how and why the National Socialist party had the impressive Eagle's Nest built at 6,017ft atop the peak of the Kehlstein mountain.

On this tour we will take the winding mountain road to the Eagle's Nest. This journey weaving along the steep, serpentine route is a captivating experience in itself.

Your experienced guide will explain the compelling background history of the mountainside, which was home to an extensive National Socialist compound during the Third Reich. Though many of these historic buildings were destroyed after WWII, your guide will help you to visualise the once-extensive compound with a selection of period photographs.

Tour Itinerary

You'll meet your accredited historical guide at the Eagle's Nest bus departure point (Salzbergstrasse 45, 83471, Berchtesgaden, Germany). Your guide will begin with an explanation of the Obersalzberg; an area that comprised a sprawling compound during the National Socialist regime, learning about why the mountainside was so decisive, and how and why it became so important to Hitler during the Third Reich.

Next will be the journey up - with no waiting around in long lines - our tours all include "skip the line". You'll travel together with your guide in one of the specially designed mountain buses driving up the private road to the Eagle's Nest. You will be shown around the historic building paying particular attention to the many original features that still remain, including the famous brass elevator, and learning the details of the impressive construction of Hitler's mountaintop masterpiece.  

The tour will include ample opportunities to take photos, ask any questions you may have, and also some free time to explore the Eagle's Nest independently. Not forgetting that the Eagle's Nest is today also a restaurant you'll also have a chance to grab a quick bite to eat or enjoy a Bavarian beer! Your guide will accompany you on the journey back down and the tour will end at the same location it began.
