Tour Overview

Meet your professional local guide and driver at your Salzburg hotel and hop on board of your luxury minivan. Afterward, your journey will take you on a scenic route to the Obersalzberg Region. Dive deeper into the area’s history with a visit to the Obersalzberg and the Berghof ruins. The Berghof, located at 3000 ft elevation, was Hitler’s former mountain residence at the Obersalzberg.

From the Obersalzberg you will access the Eagle’s Nest with special busses and elevator. You will have 2 hours at the Eagle’s Nest. Take a stroll to the very close summit Kehlstein to overlook the picturesque Bavarian and Austrian Alps. From November 1st, 2020 until about May 10th, 2021 (depends on the snow conditions of the year), the Eagle’s Nest direct access road is closed alternatively, we offer to visit the Rossfeld summit instead. From this vantage point, soak in panoramic views of the stunning Austrian and Bavarian Alps and the nearby Eagle’s Nest. Feel free to choose this option also when Eagle’s Nest is opened if you prefer a much less crowded, more local site than the Eagle’s Nest.

The Castle of Werfen is one of the most magnificent mountain fortifications in the Alps and was also used in the “Where Eagle’s Dare” movie with Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood. It was the castle of Werfen which was used as Eagle’s Nest, not the original location at the Bavarian Alps. Enjoy some good Austrian lunch right at the castle before you will marvel at the bird-of-prey show conducted by historic State Falconers, mainly featuring native free-flying raptors!

After eight hours exploring the Eagle’s Nest and the Where Eagle’s Dare Castle of Werfen, your private tour will conclude with drop-off at your Salzburg City hotel or any other location in Salzburg.

If I could give this 6 stars out of 5, I would. The tour was spectacular. Our guide was awesome – professional, very knowledgeable and friendly. We covered not only the main attractions listed but several other points of interest along the way. Both Eagles Nest and Werfen castle are remarkable both for their historical context and stunning locations. Our guide regaled us with numerous points of trivia which made our tour truly memorable. Wholeheartedly recommend this one.

My driver (Patrick) was great. Very knowledgeable, got around traffic, got to everywhere. Eagles nest was closed which was a bummer but not their fault. He suggested another mountain top which we went to which I have no idea what it was called but began with an R. That was a great spot to go and look out. He also gave me great insider tips. Would do again.
