Berchtesgaden Town and Eagle's Nest Day Tour from Munich

37 reviews
Getting from Munich to Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest (Kehlsteinhaus) by public transport makes for a long day trip. Avoid stressing about connections or the hassle of arranging a rental car, and take this relaxing tour instead. Explore the Dokumentation Obersalzberg museum and Eagle's Nest at your expense, and stop at the alpine town of Berchtesgaden. A special bus and lift then take you up to the Kehlsteinhaus at an altitude of 1,834m where you will be rewarded with spectacular views. In the event of bad weather conditions (fog, ice, snow) which make a trip up to the Kehlsteinhaus impossible, we offer the visit of the Berchtesgaden salt mines as an alternative.

This was an extremely well done trip that had something for everyone in the family. Informative, high tech complete with two slides and a train trip! Doesn’t get much better than that!!!

This was a great tour as there is a train ride , a slide and a boat ride . There is an English audio guide which was great for us as we don’t know any German . It was interesting as well

We weren't sure what to expect, but we did find the tour quite interesting. The tour is in German, you are offered an audio guide in your language. The slides are fun and there is a short ferry ride. We did a 14:00 tour on a Thursday in February, even though there are 2 more tours after ours, they were clearly closing up when we finished. Also the restaurant was closed. We were taking the bus back to Salzburg, the Salt mine is on a very busy street, so didn't feel comfortable walking somewhere to get a drink or snack before our bus. So that was a bit disappointing.

It was such a great experience and the first time we’d visited a salt mine. There’s 2 train rides, 2 slides, one bot ride and a funicular ride. A number of learning stops including tasting brine! We booked online and skipped the line to buy tickets. It also allows you to plan the timing of the tour. You have to change into miner outfits and the train ride requires you to sit astride so wear pants and comfortable shoes. There’s considerable walking through tunnels.

Glad we bought tickets online so we could skip the line. Came in from Salzburg so GPS took us to overflow parking which added a half mile walk. Would rather not have done that with 2 sex mall kids. Park on mine side of road. Arrive at least 10 minutes before to get changed and figure out where to go. Ride into mine was fun and group pics were good quality. Kids loved the two slides and the boat ride was nice, but it was hard to pay attention to the translator device with 2 kids. Gift shop was expensive and recommend skipping the restaurant onsite as it adds s long time to the day due to only one server. Plan 3-4 hours for this.
