Eagle's Nest and 'Where Eagles Dare Castle' of Werfen
The Eagle's Nest or Rossfeld summit in winter, Golling Waterfalls and the 'Where Eagles Dare Castle of Werfen'. Bavarian and Austrian Alps Full Day Private Tour.
Spend a day in the Alps and visit the Eagle's Nest, 'The Where Eagle's Dare Castle' of Werfen and admire at the Golling Waterfalls. Next to the historical Eagle's Nest the 11th century Fortress Hohenwerfen, one of the most magnificent mountain fortifications in the Alps, is another top highlight of this 8-hour private tour from Salzburg.
From April 1st to about May 10th (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.
- Eagle's Nest at an elevation of 6017 ft (in winter Rossfeld summit)
- Golling Waterfalls
- Castle of Werfen - 12th century
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 beautiful backroads to the Obersalzberg Region. Dive deeper into the area's history with a visit to the Obersalzberg, the Hotel zum Tuerken (option to visit the bunkers) and the Berghof ruins. The Berghof, located at 3000 ft elevation, was Hitler’s former mountain residence at the Obersalzberg. From that historical point we 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.
Returning at the Obersalzberg the drive goes on backroads to a hidden gem of the area, the natural wonder of Golling Waterfalls. Next is Werfen with its Middle-ages Castle of Werfen.
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!
Return to your Salzburg accommodation or city center of Salzburg at the end of the day.
