Eagles Nest ( Kehlsteinhouse )

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,...

It's ashame that they converted the house to a restaurant (it would have been nice to see more of the history there), but the views are unparalled. the bus rides up though will put the fear of god in you, as they have >1,000m drop-offs and the bus tire seems like it's riding the edge of the road on every...

We went on an organised tour to visit here. It was a fantastic 4+ hours. Really educational and really interesting. I never really understood the history behind the "nest" or how close the leaders, including Hitler, actually lived near each other. Well worth a visit. The journey up is great and the views are spectacular. It was one hell of... More

Touring the Eagle's Nest was an amazing experience. Even the bus ride to the top was unique as special buses are required due to steepness and they must time the buses since at one point only one bus can pass on the road. The elevator to the top is the original from when it was built in the 1940s. The... More

The historic chalet offered by Himmler to Hitler, the long túnel of the entrance on the basements of the mountain , the bunkers and the museum located nearby gives a us a glimpse of Nazi Germany. Besides that the location is wonderful. On a clear days you can see Austria and Germany including the beautiful Konigsee. We visited it with... More

This has been on my must see list for 35+ years! It was MORE than I expected and the views were 110% outstanding! I will go back again. Trip to the top is via DB bus (you can hike or bike if you want/have the time) and the last bus is fairly early as I recall. Check the website ahead... More

We decided to visit here because of the history of this place, but it turn out to astonishing the very beautiful view over the Alps. The bus trip among the narrow road was also the worth of experience. Also the golden elevator was something special to see. There's very little to see inside the building but still worth of visit....

If you can try to visit the Eagles nests outside of the high season. It is a remarkable place. It is unbelievable how they have managed to change a develop the whole place. So strange that he has actually never slept there.
