Eagle's Nest Tour from Munich: Groups of 4 or More

2. Eagle's Nest Tour from Munich: Groups of 4 or More

This full-day tour from Munich takes you to Hitler’s mountain retreat, located in the mountains above Berchtesgaden. Presented to him in 1939 as a 50th birthday present, the mountain chalet took 13 months to complete, and includes an elevator that was bored through a tunnel in the rocks to reach the entrance. You will depart from Munich and drive along some of the most scenic roads in the German Alps. On arrival, a special bus will take you up to the Eagle´s Nest entrance area, where you will ride the elevator to the mountain peak, and into Eagle´s Nest itself. Look at beautiful views over the Alps, with free time on your own to explore. The lower rooms can be visited with an English-speaking guide, and offer views of the building's past through plate-glass windows. Graffiti left by Allied troops is clearly visible in the surrounding woodwork. A large fireplace in the restaurant shows severe damage along its lower edges, where soldiers have smashed off small shards of marble as souvenirs. Hitler's small study is now used as a store room for the cafeteria. After the tour, you will get more free time to go to the NS-Documentation-Center in Berchtesgaden, before the drive back to Munich.

From Munich: Salzburg, St. Wolfgang, and the Salzkammergut

3. From Munich: Salzburg, St. Wolfgang, and the Salzkammergut

This trip will take you through the picturesque foothills of the Bavarian Alps. You'll be able to see the enchanting Chiemsee, also called the "Bavarian Sea," which, with an area of nearly 80 km², is the largest lake in Bavaria. In Salzburg, the city of Mozart, you will have around 2.5 hours to see the city's impressive buildings, take in the vistas, and wander through the beautiful Baroque old town. Of particular note are, for example, the Hohensalzburg fortress and the birthplace of Mozart. The cathedral, Hellbrunn Palace, and the fountains are not to be missed. The old town offers many other worthwhile attractions, from fine boutiques and culinary delicacies to art, culture, and all else the heart could desire. The next part of the tour takes place in the summer only (from April until November): The tour will then take you onwards through the Salzkammergut to the Wolfgangsee. There you will have the chance to take a boat trip to St. Wolfgang, to the Hotel zum Weißen Rössl, and to visit the pilgrimage church. There is one more exciting highlight waiting for you on the return journey : a stop at the Mondsee, a location for the film "The Trapp Family." Be enthralled by this tour to Salzburg and the Salzkammergut. If you're visiting during the winter (from November to April), instead of the visit to St. Wolfgang you'll get to enjoy more time in Salzburg. During December you'll also be able to visit the Christkindlmarket.

What people are saying about Garmisch-Partenkirchen

I had the best time on this tour! Salzburg was wonderful, it would have been nice to have an hour more of free time to explore but I still got to see and do a lot. The scenic drive through the Bavarian and Austrian Alps was gorgeous in itself. Wolfgangsee Lake and the lakes region was absolutely breathtaking. It felt exactly like being in Switzerland. We not only had the opportunity to go on a boat tour but also had some free time to explore the town of St. Wolfgang. Before going on this tour, I had researched the places we were going, but the pictures online do not do these places justice. I was blown away along the entire trip. I definitely recommend this tour the next time you visit Munich. Side note: Bring lots of cash! Not only for the boat tour but for Salzburg and St. Wolfgang themselves. Especially coins if you plan on using the public bathrooms in Austria.

My husband and I liked everything about the trip. They ran right on time as advertised which we loved. The tour guide was informative and entertaining. Soft drinks and beer was sold on the price for reasonable prices. Not price gouging like most places. The bus was comfortable and starting point very easy to find.

Our tour guide, Mario, was great. He was prompt for pickup and engaged in informational discussion during the trip to Berchtesgaden. He gave us some additional insight into the property that The Eagles Nest lies on, as well. This was a great experience and I would highly recommend this to anyone!

Super Trip - Great Guide - Take this tour rather the doing it yourself - we skipped lines on the tour saving us hours. The views from the Eagle's Nest and road up to it are amazing. Berchtesgaden is a lovely town.

Amazing one day experience to go to Austria! It's a great opportunity to do two things in one day.
