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.

i went here in 2012 the tour was 15 dollers and well worth it. The tour is about an hour. So many neat things to see on the tour. I reccomend this tour to all who go to berchesgarden.

This was well worth the visit from the ride up to the top to the spectacular views. The elevator was simply stunning. Brass and huge. The views from the top of The Eagles Nest are remarkable. It is no wonder this is where Hitler wanted a house and office.

The Eagle’s Nest (or the Kehlsteinhaus as the Germans call it) was Hitler’s mountaintop retreat and is located high above the town of Berchtesgaden, Germany. This town is in Bavaria and is about 100 miles southeast of Munich and about 17 miles south of Salzburg, Austria. It is easy to visit from Salzburg as a bus runs from the center... More

Ok, I'm a student of this entire period, the war, the regime, etc. This is one of the most clearly identifiable surviving relics of the period. It's ok. You want to visit, you want to see this place. While it is essentially today an outdoor beergarten with guests whisked up via motor coaches, there is much to recommend for even... More

We did the bus trip many years ago and kept meaning to come back. This Christmas, we took advantage of a stunningly clear and sunny day to return. Although the bus doesn't run in winter, it's possible to walk up either the faster eastern flank, taking maybe 2-2.5 hours or the longer and more scenic bus road with views of... More

We took a half day tour from Salzburg which was very informative. The guide was very knowledgable with information right from when we left Salzburg. The bus up to Eagles Nest itself was very steep and scenic. It was good to get direct access as part of the tour. The gold plated elevator was interesting. The Nest itself, now a... More

Listen, the view is absolutely breathtaking. Be sure to plan your time so that you can enjoy it. We took the elevator and had a long wait so by the time we got to the top we only had a short time to explore. We didn't know we could walk up until later. We would definitely go back again. Keep...

I have been here many times over the years. Usually I am bringing tourists that have come to visit me, but I never get tired of going to the Eagles Nest and the incredible views. Also, I enjoyed learning and seeing the historical value of this place. Children have plenty of room to run and play once at the top... More
