BERCHTESGADEN OBERSALZBERG EAGLES NEST PRIVATE TOUR
Visit Hitler’s mountain retreat, where the Nazi-leadership lived and which was Hitler’s second seat of government.
Our journey from Munich into this area traces in detail the route the US forces took into the area in May 1945.
Berchtesgaden, the Obersalzberg and the Eagles Nest are often confused as one. They are in fact three separate areas which I will show you in detail.
The area midway up the mountain is known as the Obersalzberg. This is where Hitler and many of the top Nazis lived. Access to parts of the bunker complex under the mountain is also possible.
Located at the top of the mountain is the Eagles Nest, a tea house constructed coincide with Hitler’s 50th birthday. The bus journey up the mountain is breathtaking. You finally reach the tea house by walking into the center of the mountain and taking a brass lined elevator to the top. This folly is really worth seeing and as an engineering feat never fails to impress.
I will show you the more tucked away things that the other visitors don’t see – where Hitler finished writing Mein Kampf in the woods, the walk to the tea house, more bunkers etc.
Due to snow and rock falls the Eagles Nest part of this tour is only available from mid May through to mid October. However, if you do visit in winter there are still plenty WW2 related sites to see in this mountain area.
Please note you will need a hire car for this tour. If you do not have a car I can show you where to hire one from a suitable location in Munich.
