We went to see the famous 'eagles nest' as a part of history and as an attraction with great view all around. We had very clear day so we could really enjoy our view. There is a restaurant on the top where we had lunch. All in all a perfect day in combination with Salzburg salt mine and Koenigsee.

Of you in Bergtesgaden, take a busied up to the Kehlsteinhaus (Eaglesnest). It's worth the view. The former teahouse of Adolf Hitler is converted into a restaurant. But you still feel the history up there. The recommend 2 hours of staying up there. It's the perfect time on a good sunny day. From the central busstop at the trainstation take... More

We went there with a baby and it was awesome. We used a baby carrier and I'm glad we did! There is a trail right outside on the top that you can have a better view from the house. Make sure to go early! The last bus is at 16:00 going up and 1715 going down. And the documentation place... More

Skip the scheduled bus ride to the staging area and do the 2.5 hour walk up instead. It's not difficult on a nice day and the walk down is satisfying with tremendous views. Once at the top it's really one big cafe/Resturant and bar with very little history explained. There are some old photos and explanations but they are all... More

This place is a restaurant and viewpoint 1586 mts. above sea level. It also served as a retreat for Hitler. The second is, in my opinion far more exciting. Yet this aspect of the Kelsteinhaus has been seemingly forgotten. Now, you can go up to enjoy an excellent view of the mountain scenery, which can nevertheless be found in other... More

The views are amazing and the Dokumentation Obersalzburg museum offers an eye-opening exhibition focused on the history of National Socializm. The visit of the bunkers is also extremely interesting!

Wow. Do not miss the opportunity to stroll around the Eagle's Nest and marvel at the views and incredible surroundings. History takes on a new meaning when you enter the gilded elevator up to the main building. Just wander around and take in the incredible vistas. Lunch in the cafe is perfectly fine and quite a surreal experience. The bus... More

The drive from St. Wolfgang to The Eagle's Nest was amazing. The bus ride from the base to the top car park was amazing, the views are stunning. The ability to freely walk around and explore the site was perfect, the history and preservation of the site is commendable. The views and walk to the top of the vantage points... More
