To turn yourself into an explorer right away!
Join us on this hiking tour to experience a trip of a lifetime when you venture into the mountains of Berchtesgaden in the border of Austria and Germany in the middle of the Bavarian Alps.
This Eagle’s Nest tour is special from all others.
The area is so rich in many aspects! It is full of history and the natural beauty of the landscapes. Unfortunately most people visiting Berchtesgaden and the Kehlsteinhaus miss on so many important places. The Eagle’s Nest tour is so special because we show you places that other people do not see.
We take you from the beautiful city of Salzburg to Berchtesgaden with an expert guide to rediscover hidden locations in the forest that tell the story of WWII in an unique way, for example visit the remains of Hitler’s house and several other secret locations. Then our hike up the mountain will take us to the Kehlsteinhaus, Hitler’s personal mountain retreat later renamed as the famous Eagle’s Nest. The whole place was build for one purpose, and that was to impress. Ride down the mountain using a huge brass elevator constructed 124 meter inside the mountain.
Follow your guide from Salzburg into Obersalzberg to discover stunning views and historic locations and buildings of World War II and lern more about this chapter of human history in our special Eagle’s Nest Tour.
