Our tour from Salzburg had two highlights. First the sceneries from the Kehlsteinhaus or The Eagle´s Nest as it is normally called, and second, our guide Walter. He offered the basic knowledge about the building but also told us numerous jokes during the day and...More

Walter was an outstanding tour guide. The eagles nest was a place on my bucket list. Amazing tour included visiting the small town which had a few restaurants including one with great cheeseburgers and fries

As with most war related things in Germany this is heavily underplayed. There has been some recent additions of info boards and pictures related to Hitlers time here but it is in no way a museum or shrine. It is a restaurant at the top...More

We went by car. It is a steep drive up from Berchtesgaden to the carparks and ticket office. Higher of the two main carparks is better for Eagles Nest and the lower is better for the Uber Salzburg (bunker museum). Small parking charges apply. Tickets...More

The views from this historic place is amazing. The building has been converted into a restaurant. Very busy, go early in the morning.

We stopped at Eagle's Nest on a tour of the area and were glad we did. Incredible vistas, dramatic history and a nice cafe with cold beer and lighter fare. Worth a visit to see this historical summit retreat. The bus ride up the winding...More

Getting 2 stars for lovely views. If you can find a lovely view nearby - shouldn’t be too hard - than do that instead. Completely overwhelmed by tourists and queues and there is nothing to see of Hitler’s nest now at all. Little option but...More

Tickets are purchased at the base of the mountain. Take the 837 bus from Berchtesgaden right to the bus location and a short line to get your bus tickets. If you choose to drive head to Oberplatz and there are several... More
