Set amongst some of the most beautiful scenery is Eagles Nest. Well worth the drive up from Munich to visit this fascinating Place. Don't miss the Documention Centre as well, so much to see.

6 of us. 4 walked, It was a warm day in September. 2 took the bus and then walked the last 20 minutes to the top. We had lunch at the top and the service was fast and the food good......of course everyone thought the beer was the best! What a great way to enjoy Bavaria.

I read some reviews saying to not plan much time here, but our group (6 of us) loved it and would have stayed for 3-4 hours if we had the time. Plan to do some hiking while up there. The views are amazing, but they change seemingly with every step. There is a part where you go from Germany to... More

We were there at 8am which I think is the best time because we were on the first bus so the place was pretty much to ourselves. The views are fabulous but it was a lovely sunny day. The tunnel and lift were interesting. Did'nt go into the salt mines mainly because we did'nt have time.

From the Berchtesgaden train station you will take Bus 838 to the Documentation Center.You will be dropped off at the road and will have to walk down by the ticket booth to switch to a special RVO Bus .It will take you up to the elevator. Before riding the elevator up to the Eagles Nest make sure to choose a... More

Don’t even think about visiting unless the weather is clear otherwise you’ll see nothing of the 360-degree view but clouds. Feat of engineering for a little used 50th birthday present. Tea house itself is an underwhelming and ugly building. Only way up other than walking is the shuttle bus system but they’ll be delays at busy times due to the... More

We booked a private tour, which was worth the extra cost. Our guide was able to make sure that we got in the right place at the right time, so that we had little queuing to do. He also took us to places for views that bus tours missed out on. It is an interesting drive up the steep and... More

I went with the Gray Line and Sophie was the tour guide. She was exceptional and her explanations of everything including the city of Munich as we left and returned there from the Eagles Nest as well as the running commentary on everything about the Eagles Nest and the surrounding area. Unfortunately, it was raining the entire day and from... More
