I went on this trip with Thomsen's. The tour guide was very interesting and entertaining. Everything was organised, and in typical German fashion it was all very efficient. I thought there may be more of a sinister atmosphere but this wasn't the case. Go on a fine day and the scenery is wonderful. Take something warm as it can get... More

A great view from the top and although it's very busy and touristy, they do a good job of managing the crowd. The bus was easy but if I had more time I would have hiked it.

The short bus ride already will take away your breath with every turn, and the 360 degree panoramic views on the top are absolutely breathtaking. Well worth a trip.

This 3 star marking is not objective. Everyone's experience on this is solely depending on the weather up there. I would agree with a fellow traveler suggesting to go up only if you see it from down, but on the other hand, you are there having time left for it, so it's a pity not to go. When we were... More

Although many people don't want to go there because it was Bormann's gift for Hitler on his 50th birthday, it is one of the most breathtaking places I've ever seen, so I highly recommend to visit it. House along with interior lift and alpine bus road is a wonder of technique even for today's standards. First one must go to... More

No Need to pay for the tour - over priced - also need to beaware of the travel time of the bus to the top - you have set your return time it if you arrive after 15:00 you will have less than 1 hour on the top. Recommend eating at the restaurant on the top -and on the bottom... More

We were so blessed to have a lovely clear day on top of this attraction. Firstly you drive all the way to the bus station that you pick up the tickets that will allow you a return bus ride to the elevators ( about 1 minute up). The elevator was packed with about forty people . Once you reach the... More

When telling friends "oh, yes and we are visiting Berchtesgaden on our trip" I found myself hesitating to mention the "Eagle's Nest" as if I was ashamed or uncomfortable about it. But however much I skirted around the subject I realised that like all of us it is a segment of history that has to be seen. We made our... More

Unfortunately the day we went to this "attraction" the whole world his wife and dog went also, the two main car parks and roadways were full, we parked in the overflow car park, walked back the 800 metres or so to where you catch the bus, the only way to get to the ground station is by bus, depending on...

Well you know the history but this building is fantastic. The ride to the top of the mountain is great by specially adapted low geared buses. then a walk through an ice cold tunnel built in 1938 up a 150' lift to the top of the world. The history is atrocious as most of this was built by prisoners /convicts,... More
