Eagle’s Nest and the Where Eagle’s Dare Castle of Werfen from Salzburg
Planning an itinerary to explore several distant places in a single day might be difficult. This day excursion from Salzburg eliminates the hassle of preparation by taking care of everything. On this 8-hour Eagle’s Nest Private Tour, discover the Eagle’s Nest, the Golling Waterfalls, and the Castle of Werfen with private local Guide.
Meet your professional local guide 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 Full Day Eagle’s Nest Private Tour will conclude with drop-off at your Salzburg City hotel or any other location in Salzburg.
