Our last visit on the Beyond Band of Brothers Tour through ProCom was to Munich where we learned of Hitler's rise to power, Dachau, the Eagle's Nest, and Berchtesgarden. The drive was beautiful, the views fantastic, the exhibits well done and fascinating.

From Berchtesgaden you can catch a bus to Berghof which is very near the Obersalzberg Documentation Center which I recommend to visit. In Berghof there is a bus station where you can get on a private bus to the Eagle's nest.
