Full description
The Eagle's Nest, or Kehlsteinhaus, is a retreat nestled high in the Kehlstein Mountains. It was originally given to Adolf Hitler as a 50th birthday gift, and offers historical insight as well as beautiful views. This tour will take you up into the mountains and over the German border into Bavaria, passing by the salt mines. The first stop of the tour is in the Obersalzberg area, where you'll change buses to head to the Eagle's Nest high in the Kehlstein Mountains. Hitler held many meetings in the Eagle's Nest, which he used as a conference center. You'll have free time to explore the old conference room, dining area, and small tea room with terraces. Your guide will explain the history and stories of this interesting retreat during your visit. After leaving the Eagle's Nest, your tour will return to Salzburg.

The tour itself was very good. We had a top guide, with humor, who spoke fluent English. Good to ride the fm tour as we smoothly arrived / entered without queues. However, we became a little unsure because the organizer who was standing on the voucher was not at the designated meeting place. We were instead referred by another organizer to a third organizer. Good to be out in good time! The tour is recommended.

Overall great experience but would have liked a longer amount of time. Feel a little rushed. The guide was fabulous and very knowledgeable.
