Eagle's Nest Tour traveling from Munich

Does anyone know of a good tour group that would provide a great tour of the Eagles Nest traveling to and from Munich. Rick Steve's has a tour company he recommends that is already in the area, but we are traveling with a child and for simplicity would like a tour that includes transporation to and from Munich where we will be staying.

When do you want to travel? The Kehlsteinhaus (official name of the Eagles nest) access road is closed in the winter; usually does not open until late in April.

Idon't know of any official tour from Munich to Berchtesgaden, the starting point of the climb by bus to the Obersalzberg. There you have to change into specially equipped busses; you appreciate the special brakes on the drive on the road to the in-mountain elevator which takes you to the top of the mountain and the Kehlsteinhaus. The main attraction of the Kehlstein is the view of the mountains. The Kehlsteinhaus is - in my opinion - a so-so restaurant.

You can also take the train from Munich to Berchtesgaden, where you pick up the bus to the Obersalzberg, etc. Check www.bahn.de for schedules and the time it takes round trip. Enter Munich - Berchtesgaden - Obersalzberg. You can use the discounted Bavarian Ticket for the whole trip. For details. check "Search" on this forum and enter Bavarian Ticket/Bayern Ticket. Going by train would make for a long day.

With a child, you may be better off taking the train from Munich to either Garmnisch - Partenkirchen or Mittenwald. In Garmisch, you could take the cog railway to the top of the Zugspitze (perhaps a bit long for a child), or in Mittenwald you can take the shorter cable car ride to the top of the Karwendel. both also offer great views, and have better restaurants.

Hi Traveling,

Here are some bus tours from München going to the Eagle's Nest:

viator.com/tours/…d487-285011

www.city-discovery.com/munich/tour.php…

grayline.com/Munich/Berchtesgaden_and_Eagle_…

II believe these are all the same tour, and different agencies are just marketing it. You may be able to find other tours if you do a google search or ask your hotel.

Have fun!

Just a tip for when you get there: the visitor centre has part of the bunker system open but to my mind, this is a little santized. Just around the corner (literally about 150m away) is the Hotel zum Turken. This is privately owned and for about E2 you can visit their bunker complex which is underneath their premises. This was linked to the bunkers in the visitor centre but is un-touristified and is a lot more evocative. It is not visited by the mass of tourists who maybe are only aware of the Kehlsteinhaus so you might be lucky (as I was) to have the place to yourself, although if your child is very young and you use a buggy, you will find the stairs next to impossible...it is a deep bunker.
