We decided to take the tour as we figured this was most likely the only time we would visit. My parents, my husband I were all interested in the history of the area. Our tour guide did a great job of giving us lots of background information on Germany at the time, Hitler's life and the important people in the Nazi party. Even my kids enjoyed the tour although they were most interested in walking around the mountain and seeing the hang gliders flying around. The tour is the best way to see the Eagle's Nest, surrounding area, the small museum and underground tunnels. We truly got so much information from our tour guide that we otherwise wouldn't have had. It helped us to understand much more about the mindset and workings of Hitler and the Nazi party. One tip, if you are up for it take the trail and walk back down the mountain to the buses rather than take the elevator down. The views are great and it only takes about 15 minutes plus time for pictures.
