Unfortunately, the tour and restaurant is closed until mid May however, we paid the 8 euros to get through the road barrier and made our way up to the top where the views were stunning on one side and misty on the other. Well worth the trip.

I'm a American/European historian and well read on the history of the place, that being said, one should know their Berchtesgaden history 'before' going. In light of its past, the location takes great effort in de-emphasizing the real history of its Third Reich years and if you didn't know much before the visit, you won't learn much today. All of...

If you are a history fanatic, such as my husband, this is a must-visit attraction. If you are not that interested by history, it is nice to go along just for the magnificent views alone.

Great view, definitely worth of visiting. It's also so amazing that in those days they could built so quickly in so difficult milieu.The history with Hitler is a bit creepy. Kävimme syksyllä ja ilma sattui olemaan kuulas ja raikas, joten maisemat avautuivat henkeäsalpaavan kauniina. Juuri maisemien takia paikka on hieno, varsinainen historia Hitlerin mökkinä on jotenkin selkäpiirtä karmiva.

An amazing bus ride from Salzburg to the drop off point near Bechtesgaden. An extraordinary switchback ride up the mountain (on the special tour bus). A ride up in an elevator that was used by Hitler (a couple of times at least) Stunning views of the area around the Eagle's Nest. Wonderful to walk about, look about, hike a bit.... More

The history behind this attraction is amazing and makes u want to see it but the experience is not that exciting. Definitely not worth the tour agencies charge. If there is an option to get there on your own without paying the ridiculous amount to a tour guide please opt for that.

Built by Martin Bormann as a Present for Adolf Hitler, the cost is incalculable in modern money. Shows how much Bormann knew, Hitler was frightened of heights and seldom visited this spot, its main claim to fame was in 1944 when Gretl Braun and Obergrupennfuhrer Herrmann Fegelein held their Wedding Reception there. The panelled room is sometimes referred to as... More

Amazing views and the history is awesome. The food and drink at the top outside is complimented by the views. If you have the guts try climbing the rocks to the very top near the Edelweiss symbol. I slipped on the snow. The ride up to the top of the Eagles Nest is an experience in the mirrored elevator. You... More

An amazing day out and one that I will never forget. If the weather is good it will be busy but the views across Bavaria and into Austria are breathtaking.

A place of great historical importance, unfortunately, the wrong ideology. the place from which you can see on a clear day more than 100 kilometers in distance, beautiful landscape, and above all magnificent architectural feat for the time 60 years ago. roads carved in stone, a tunnel of 120 meters horizontally carved in the rock, and also 120 meters vertically,...
