I first visited the Eagle's Nest as a teenager and was less than impressed but a second visit recently totally changed my mind. Yes, getting there is timeconsuming and annoying but it is also run very efficiently so given the crowds is actually pretty good. Going up in Hitler's lift even with loads of other tourists is still a spooky... More

Went up on a sunny day- needless to say- the views were spectacular! Had a quick bite at the restaurant- food was tasty. Decided to walk down to the bus stop, rather than take the elevator back down! Excellent decision. Long lines for the elevator, but few using the footpath! Win! Beautiful flowers on your your way down! An easy... More

The eagles nest is such a strange experience to anyone with some knowledge of the history. The story behind its construction and purpose of this building is fascinating to say the least. Even with the history aspect set aside the visit is still so worth while, the construction and views are amazing and well worth the trip.

I thought that the trip up the mountain and the actual facility were exceptional. The elevator going up the final 100+ meters was really special and provided added insight into Hilter's personal fears. I liked the ability to walk around both the interior and exterior and get a sense of the history made there. The one aspect I would have... More

This was the focal point of our trip. The lift was stunning, the drive up and down the mountain (on specialised buses) was amazing - the view from the nest was incomparable. One of the best locations I have visited.

As other reviewers have stated, this attraction can be somewhat overrun with coach loads of tourists. It is, however. still very much worth a visit. There is a car park (fee payable) from where you get buses (having purchased a ticket - 16 euros) up to the first stage. The journey takes around 20 minutes with the buses hugging the... More

An important place to visit historically, it was a bit disappointing that it was nearly all in German but otherwise important and the views are amazing, take the time to go for a short hike if possible its worth it!

17 euros gets you a bus ticket and entrance. We went up on a clear sunny day and the views were magnificent. You have to buy a ticket for the bus, as no other traffic is allowed on the road up. When the bus arrives, you have to go to the ticket office and say what time bus you want... More

The part that is open to tourists is very small but it's still worth seeing. We went on a guided tour, so we had limited time but it was so small it turned out to be fine. We had hot chocolate in the cafe. It was rainy and cold so we didn't appreciate the view as much as we should... More

I found this place disappointing as I expected to see at least some stuff of historical value and all they have is a series of plaques on one wall documenting the history of The Eagle's Nest which is in German. This place is nothing more than just a restaurant with a beer garden and a souvenir stall (even though I... More
