Tour: The Eagle’s Nest

As soon as, at the end of the 19th century, the railway to Berchtesgaden had been built, the number of visitors, tourists and day-trippers increased immediately. This fact is not amazing, because the Berchtesgaden Countryside is one of the most enchanting regions of Bavaria. Regular visits of the members of the House of Wittelsbach to the Berchtesgaden Castle, the beautiful surroundings of the Watzmann Massif and nearby Königssee were attractive crowd pullers Now and Then.

Adolf Hitler discovered the beauty of this area, too, when he visited Obersalzberg for the first time in 1923. 10 years later the National Socialists claimed this district of Berchtegaden, situated as high as 1000 m above ground as “restricted Führer area” and almost every important party figure had its own private domicile up there. Adolf Hitler himself lived at the “Berghof”, a generous mansion, which nowadays is only recognizable as ruin fundaments in a reforested woodland. It is situated close to documentation center Obersalzberg. This centre houses an exhibition about National Socialism and is trying to communicate the connection to Obersalzberg. Hitler spent lots of time at his “Berghof” and for quite some time it was even called “second state chancellery” (beside Berlin). But never forget: here, in this beautiful surroundings decisions were made about strategies of war, about life and death, about the fate of many nations.

Some 900 meters above Hitler’s residence lies the Eagle’s Nest (Kehlsteinhaus). Hitler got it as a present for his 50th birthday. It was completed in 1938. Unlike the Beghof it survived and houses a restaurant since 1952. It’s always worth the time to visit the Kehlsteinhaus. You have a gorgeous view and the ascent by bus on a road with a downgrade of 24% is a thrilling adventure.

Possible combinations for this tour:


  • Berchtesgaden and Obersalzberg can be visited throughout the year, while the “Eagle’s Nest” is only open during the snow free months between May and the end of October. In case the “Eagles’s Nest” is open there is still some time left for a stroll in the beautiful pre-alpine scenery or a visit at the Obersalzberg Documentation Center.
  • Königssee is only 15 minutes away from Obersalzberg and is offering an unique view of Berchtesgaden Alps. The lake is nestling fjord-like between steeply sloping scarps. With its depth of 190 meters it is one of the deepest lakes in Germany. Lake navigation is on electric boats only. Treat yourself to an unforgettable trip on the lake!
  • Berchtesgaden Salt Mine and Old Bad Reichenhall Saline both are offering guided tours inside the mine. The tour, including ticket sale, changing clothes, and wait will take approximately 1,5 – 2 hours. For guests with reduced mobility it is recommended to visit Berchtesgaden Salt Mine, because the Old Reichenhall Saline is requiring the ability to manage stairs. These tours are a great experience and popular with all age groups.
  • Rossfeld-Höhenring Scenic Road is one of Germany’s most beautiful Scenic Roads. Up on 1570 meters it is the most high-lying road in Germany.
