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

You'll enjoy some stunning views while on the bus ride up if you sit on the left side (right side going down) Even in summer, it can get pretty cool up here & windy, so best to bring a light jacket. The buses drop off right near the elevator, which means there can be a bit of a wait and... More

Parking your car down at Obersalzberg and hop on a bus that will take you up to the entrance to the Kehlsteinhaus (Eagles Nest). The weather varies a lot in June, maybe it's a little more stable in July or August. You should therefor bring warm and waterproof clothes. The road up to the entrance is a kind of a... More

The Kehlsteinhaus is built for a 50th birthday of Adolf Hitler. It was preserved from being destroyed by allies.

The Kehlsteinhaus was intended as a 50th birthday present for Adolf Hitler to serve as a retreat, and a place for him to entertain visiting dignitaries. We were told he only visited the Kehlsteinhaus around 10 times, usually for no more than 30 minutes. It's amazing, from a historical and geographical landscapical (is that a word?) POV...
