Awesome views!

Really glad we did this! There wasn't much to the Eagles Nest in relation to war memorabilia however, but still worth the trip for the views alone! Tour guide was great, but if I... read more

We took a 600 mile detour to visit 'the Eagle nest' no-one can deign the views are amazing but I was disappointed as all historical remains had been removed. I got the impression a lot of people felt the same. If you want to eat in beautiful surroundings worth a visit but not for historical significance as there's nothing left.

Really glad we did this! There wasn't much to the Eagles Nest in relation to war memorabilia however, but still worth the trip for the views alone! Tour guide was great, but if I was to do it again I'd maybe go independently only so I could enjoy the views a while longer. However, because we were in the tour... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip. We caught the 9.20am bus from Dokumentation Obersalzberg which was great as we missed lots of the crowds. Sit on the ride hand side of the bus going up for the best views. The bus ride up was spectacular. After you get off the bus, you walk through a long damp... More

It was hard to find the official website for the attraction to know how to get there and if advanced booking was available (I don't think it was). We arrived by 8:45 and took one of the first buses up the mountain on a perfect clear morning. The cost was 33E for a family of 5 (2 adults 3 kids).... More

Location is breath taking from the botom of the mountain to the one way road from 1000m to 1600m altitude when you travel by buss and up to the high top. You have to be lucky not catch some lazy cloud laid on the top of the mountain and obstructing your view. For this vizit you should allocate min 3-4... More

The weekend house of "psychopath with the mustache". That is very beautiful place with so dark history. Beautiful landscape, nice peoples which want to change the history of area. But I think and I feel that still we can feel every where around the shadow of that nazionalist bastard and him minions. The place is full of contrast, and if... More

This is a great place to visit both for the historical interest and the current views. Access to the top is by designated buses only. A family return ticket cost around €35 and whilst it was busy our designated bus was leaving within 15 minutes of the purchase. Seating isn't allocated but they appear to only sell the correct number... More

You have to see this. The bus ride alone, up and down, is worth it. Find a way to read the history before going so you understand why it is there!

This was one of the stops on the Pana roma Tours. Glad we went with the group. The lines were long and we got to skip to the front since we were with the tour group. Once at the top the views were spectacular. Would have liked to spend about another home or so sitting in the restaurant and just... More
