- Obviously worth seeing - Fantastic views - cafe - Actually not that much to see - only three rooms. We were just as interested in the road construction, the tunnel and lift (elevator) - Easy to get there by bus from the Documentation Centre - We regret spending a lot of money on the tour - just not necessary....

We visited the Eagle's nest in a day, which started with heavy clouds. There is less to see in cloudy day, luckily clauds disappeared suddenly and we could see some very nice views. Make sure prior buying the tickets to buss ride that there is no clouds, otherwise you might be dissappointed. After the bus ride to up, you need... More

I recommend getting here early in the morning, as the place fills up fast. I was very impressed with the bus drivers. It takes some serious skill to drive those enormous tour buses up those narrow and windy mountain roads. Once on the top, the views are wonderful. We were lucky to have a clea day. There are a few...

Went there on a clear sky day. Awesome view! There's also a very interesting documentation center which has lots of interesting information about Hitler and his ruling years.

Sadly we went on a rainy overcast day which limited the views however I can imagine it is glorious up there in the clouds on a bright clear summers/winters day. A little disappointed there wasn't more a 'museum' at the top. It could have been turned into a great historical information site. Food in the restaurant was passable.

We visited on a very cloudy day and consequently could see absolutely nothing! After paying to park in the car park you then need to take a fairly expensive bus trip up to the Eagle's Nest itself. Then, after a brief walk through a tunnel you get to take a ride in the brass elevator which delivers you to the... More

Go on a clear day! Buses leave from Obersalzburg which historically was a second headquarters for Hitler. There is also a very interesting Documentary Center about the Third Reich in Obersalzburg that is worth seeing. If you don't speak German, get an audio guide for the translation. Below the center is a bunker you can walk through. The Eagle's nest... More

We are so pleased that we took the tour for this. Even though there isn't as much to see inside the actual structure, no furniture form that time period, etc. The views are phenomena,l and we can see why Hitler chose this spot for his retreat center. They've basically turned the building into a restaurant.The tour is great, lots of... More

The trip to the Eagles Nest is dramatic window on the world. The views are stunning but you can't erase the facts of the construction and the turmoil caused to the world by the owner. Well preserved and now a restaurant, it is worth a visit. The food was good, but the service by the hard pressed staff was brusque... More
