Facts are: - Wonderful Scenic Beauty - Lots of walking sometimes steep) - Carry a good wide angle Camera because you will get some amazing shorts from this height - Search for a sunny day and start early - accessible only in summers

I am a big history buff so we came to see the Eagles Nest. The lines where unbearable, All the buses were full, had to wait in a tunnel to get on the elevator. Once up on top the views were beautiful but you can NOT see any of the historic rooms, they were all blocked off. You basically wait... More

I went with a group and this was one of our side trips. Learning about the Hitler history it was amazing to go up to The Eagles Nest. The views were spectacular. Just knowing that Hitler was there made it very interesting. A must see. Also there is a restaurant on the top.

The location of this former Nazi getaway is spectacular. Views are memorable and breathtaking. Unfortunately, the ugly history of this place made it almost intolerable to visit.

Very historic place as used to be Hitler's holiday retreat during the war...the original fireplace still stands and get to go up to the top using the golden elevator. Very scenic drive up and incredible views and photo opportunities at the top! Highly recommended!

A great view of the valley when you get up to the nest, how he built this secret place and try to feel what Hitler felt,

Our visit to Hitler's mountain retreat was hampered by a sudden late spring snowstorm. We retreated to the restaurant, which was formally a conference room and greeting room. While it was strange to sit in Hitler's conference room and next to a fireplace given to him by Mussolini, the food was somewhat good. The menu featured mostly game from the... More
