Heading out south of Salzburg you will cross the close German Border towards the first German village Marktschellenberg. Get your first view to the Eagle's Nest and continue on an off the beaten track road towards the "Obersalzberg", pass the Sound of Music Meadow where Maria was singing the opening scene in the world-famous musical Sound of Music on your way to the "Obersalzberg" Eagle's Nest bus terminal. From that historical point, we will access the Eagle's Nest with special busses and elevator. You will have about 1 hour at the Eagle's Nest, time to get many ever-memorable pictures, and maybe also having lunch at the Eagle's Nest terrace overlooking the entire Bavarian Mountains. The very scenic view of the Bavarian Mountains, the King’s lake (Koenigssee), and the surrounding area of Salzburg will be an everlasting memory of your Austrian holiday. During the winter months, the tour might visit Rossfeld summit instead, to get a stunning view of the Bavarian Mountain and the Eagle's Nest.
Returning at the Obersalzberg your journey continues to the King's Lake (photo stop) and further on to Berchtesgaden for visiting the 490 years old mines. You will enter by train, use the miner's slides, and finally cross a salt lake with a ferry boat before you will be driven out with the train again.
After a short stop in Berchtesgaden, we will make our way back to Salzburg along the King's Lake River Valley.
Return to your accommodation or any other location in Salzburg at the end of the day.
