but the museum is incredible and I would recommend this trip to everyone. We stayed in Salzburg and it was quite easy to take a local bus (taxis were pretty pricey) to Berchtesdagen. Once we were there we were able to take local taxis everywhere...More

Eagle's nest has a beautiful location. Other than historic point of view the scenery is so mesmerising and freezing.Pack a good jacket and enjoy the beauty.

This was at least our fourth time to visit The Eagle's Nest and while we've experienced the ride up (bus and elevator) before, each time is a little different ~ depending on the crowds and weather. We've been up in beautiful weather with few people...More

Eagle's Nest is quite a feat, and not easy to reach. We went with a tour and I'm glad we did. It made traveling there easy, and we were allowed to cut a lot of lines to use the elevator. Either way, prepare for a...More

From Berchtesgaden you can catch a bus to Berghof which is very near the Obersalzberg Documentation Center which I recommend to visit. In Berghof there is a bus station where you can get on a private bus to the Eagle's nest.

The hiking trail is very long 2-3 hr walk. I guess it would be easier to get the bus up and walk down the trail!!!
