We did this a day trip from Salzburg. At the bus stop in front of H&M near Salzburg train station, bus 840 leaves every hour to Bertesgadener. You can buy return tix on the bus for €10. Journey is abt 40min. Then we transfer to...More

After views at Berchtesgaden didn't think it could get better; it did. Great place for pictures, though most cameras can't do it justice. Still snow when we were there but not particularly cold (and I'm from Florida). We had about thirty minutes of fantastic viewing...More

Park your car in the lot and follow the signs to the ticket booth and bus. Bus leaves every 25 minutes. It takes 20 from the bus lot to the tunnel to catch the elevator to the Eagles Nest Building. Once up on the mountain...More

We went over there on a Saturday and the place was packed with tourists. But once you get of the bus on the plateau the view is breathtaking. From the bus station u have two options: either you go into the tunnel and then take...More

Accessible by bus from Obersalzberg Documentation center or by foot on walking path (cca 3 hours). Visit by good weather because if it's cloudy you will see nothing from the mountain.

We found it very interesting and a great thing to do on a rainy day, I am told you can see much further when it's clear though. We did the self audio tour and it was ok but I would do the live tour if...More

We were here on a Sunny day, the bus ride was good, and the view from hitlers summer house is phenomenal. You should see it if you have not.

Very strange place (for obvious reasons!) however, there isn't a great deal up there as I was expecting (I was thinking it was going to be museum like). There is a car park half way up the mountain then special buses take you the rest...More

Simply breathtaking scenery, you can see into Salzburg on a clear day. The road on the ascent is something else. (Sit on the left side of the bus if you don't like heights!);) Top tips: Go early though it gets very busy!. Have currywurst and...More

It looks like you visited here in March but the website shows that it's closed until mid-May. Was it worth going from Salzberg (I'll be there at the beginning of May) even if you can't do a tour of the building?

The latest is that it could be open from 1st May 2017 but is very much weather dependent e.g. snowfall. Just a short drive from Salzburg where I went from and worth it even to drive up via road controlled barrier road if... More
I've read a lot of reviews about taking this bus and that bus, but I'd like to know specifics. We will be driving to The Eagle's Nest from Hallein, Austria. I understand that I can either hike to the top or take a bus to the top. Where does the bus leave from? How often does it run? How much does it cost? Do I need to pay for parking for my car that's left at the bottom? Also, I read, "“REMEMBER to buy your Motorway sticker for your rental car before you enter Austria, as I had to pay 120 euro to the Police as I exited the main motorway towards Berchtesgaden.” What does that mean? THANKS! :)

The visitor's center for the Eagle's nest is at the base of the mountain, so that's as far as you can drive up. After you buy a ticket, they have a shuttle bus that drives all the way up to the top......then, when you get... More
