Leave Munich behind for the day and head into the Bavarian Alps to visit a mountain-top house with a dark history entwined with the Third Reich. Discover its history on this day trip to Berchtesgaden and the Eagle's Nest.
Berchtesgaden & Eagle's Nest Day Trip Itinerary
On the morning of your tour, we'll meet at Karlsplatz and head in the direction of Berchtesgaden: a bucolic mountain town nestled in a valley in the heart of the Bavarian Alps, close to the border between Germany and Austria.
Having arrived in the Alpine town and taken in a deep breath of the fresh mountain air, you'll make your way to Obersalzberg station, the departure point for visits to Kehlsteinhaus. This mountain chalet, known in English as the Eagle's Nest, was constructed under the Third Reich for exclusive use by Nazi Party members.
To reach the dizzying heights of the building, located on the peak of Kehlstein Mountain at over 6,000 feet (1,834 m), you'll use an elevator built into the rock (not included). Inside the building (entrance not included), you'll see different maps and other objects used by Hitler and the Nazis during the pivotal days of the Second World War. Outside the Eagle's Nest is a viewpoint offering privileged panoramic views over the dramatic mountains, sweeping valleys and mysterious verdant forests of the Bavarian Alps extending at your feet.
Following your guided tour of Kehlsteinhaus, which will last around two hours, you'll return to the bottom of the mountain via the lift. From there you'll be taken to Grafenhöhe, a restaurant in the foothills of the mountains where you'll have an hour and fifteen minutes of free time to enjoy lunch (not included).
After eating, you'll head to Dokumentationszentrum Obersalzberg, the Eagle's Nest Documentation Centre, where you'll have 75 minutes of free time to visit this museum dedicated to the history of this area of the Bavarian Alps during the Third Reich. At around 4 pm, you'll make the return journey to Munich, arriving back after the two hour journey.
