    The Eagle's Nest
    Stop: 60 minutes - Admission included
    Arrive at the mountainside hamlet of Obersalzburg. Snake up the scenic road on a brief shuttle ride, passing the mountain of Hoher Göll. Then, debark and step inside a World War II-era elevator made from brass, which once transported Hitler’s guests to the Eagle’s Nest. At the top, bypass the crowds with a direct access ticket and enter the complex. Built for Hitler’s 50th birthday, wander the site with your guide, learning the history behind it as you go. Soak up the incredible views as you look out from a perch of some 5,000 feet (1,524 meters) above ground.

Eagles Nest and the surrounding area are nothing short of gorgeous and a must-see, but I'd strongly recommend avoiding a tour with this company. The bus was crammed to the brim. We arrived early to get a seat but were then directed to a tour booth nearby to get a ticket

Responded 25 May 2020
Hello, thank you for your feedback regarding our Eagle's Nest Tour, which we have read with great interest. We are very sad that the tour couldn't convice you and that you have left our coach disappointed. We are sorry you expected more historical in-depth information, but our guides try hard to give our guests as much information as possible. Nevertheless for more detailed information or special interest, we do recommend doing a private tour being much more flexible according to our guest's interests. According to our evaluations and excellent reviews here on Tripadvisor, we get a lot of positive feedback on the running of the tour as well as on our guides. We are sorry that you had not the same personal perception of this tour. Once again we are sorry that we were not able to meet your expectations and we would like to ensure you that your comments will be taken into consideration as areas of improvement. We would be happy if we could get another chance to welcome you back in Salzburg someday! With best regards, your Salzburg Panorama Tours team

Our tour guide Walter was a bit cranky. Not sure if it was because of the second to last day of this tour (closed Nov 3). The audio on the bus wasn’t good - they spoke so fast between languages and it was muffled so we didn’t really benefit from much of what he had to say. I

Weather was perfect for this kind of trip to mountains. It was sunny so views were breathtaking. Person who is interested in history (especially WW2) should visit this place. Professional guide. Organisation level for the trip 10/10. Recommend.

We went on this tour on a really overcast day and cold. The weather was not something that could be changed and we missed some of the scenery, but the eagles nest was impressive and worth the visit. The salt mines was interesting though once Leo, our guide, had to turn us over

The Eagle's Nest seemed like a checkpoint (along with Dachau today) for us to get a better perspective of the Evil in the 1930s-1945. The guide was functional. He told his stories and jokes and then turned on recorded, random classical music. We switched buses and guides when
