Review of The Eagle's Nest

The Eagle's Nest
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 July 2017 via mobile

Our group visited here and found the whole experience very interesting. From getting our tickets at the bus station to the coordinated way in which 6 buses all managed to get up the mountain was impressive in itself.

Once off the bus you have to give a return time to get a ticket down. They reccommend two hours to look around.

You enter a tunnel and are then transported up in a lift. It was busy the day we went. It was a glorious day too and because of that the views from the area above the building itself were phenomenal.

If you are a history buff then there are some interesting pieces of information on the wall along the "Sun terrace". (Left side of building as you look from the rear) Other then that it's a restaurant and there us a nice area to walk up to above the building.

Bus back down

Enjoy the view

It is a popular tourist attraction, we knew some history behind the "Eagle's Nest", so we want to see whether there is any trace left. But a little disappointed. Do pray for a sunny day visit. If it is raining don t bother as there will be no view of the mountains .

You could drive your own car there, but hard to find a parking spot. Then take the bus, which requires long waiting. The house also can be reached on foot (about two hours or so) from Obersalzberg.

Nowadays the Kehlsteinhaus is a cafe and beer garden. It said that the cafeteria stockroom was Hitler's old study. You might see its past from the damaged fireplace, the graffiti left by US troops like the band of brothers.

We took this option tour on our Trafalgar Tour of Imperial Europe and we're very happy that we did. We were blessed with perfect weather so we enjoyed awesome views of Salzburg and the Bavarian Alps.

Getting to the top of the mountain is a very well orchestrated method. The tour bus negotiates the elevation changes through narrow winding roads. The history of this place is quite interesting and one will appreciate the engineering involved in getting it done.

Another elevator will hoist maybe up to 30 passengers at once to get to the top of the mountain. From there, more climbing by foot is necessary to enjoy the very best views of the Bavarian Alps and the towns below.

It's a must see for visitors who are able to deal with the climbing on foot and the elevation.

For me was a must do because usually I travel in the area during winter for skiing and the Eagle's nest is closed and all these years I developed my own idea about this objective ... so I had big expectations and I was a little bit disappointing.

We did'nt know what to expect from a visit to the eagles nest. It turned out to be interesting but not oncomfortabel because of the history. It's just a touristspot nowdays. A parkingspot was hard to find (drive 800meters past the entrance for more spots). We had to wait for 45minutes before the bus took us up. You have to book a ride down at a specific time as well. Keep the waiting line down in mind when it's busy so you won't miss the bus.
