We did the half day group tour with Eagle's Nest Historical Tours back in September. The guide (a woman whose name I can't recall) was very knowledgeable and the tour route took us past some really interesting historic landmarks around Berchtesgaden and on the Obersalzberg. The tour also visited the documentation museum (situated on the location where Hitler's house once... More

We learned a lot about the area and village. It was a nice day with great scenery. It was mostly centered on what happened to the village and the residents when Hilter came into power and took over the town and property. It was interesting. Small children would be bored but it would be a good place to take teenager

An absolute must-see and this is THE only company to do it with. Have seen the Eagle's Nest so many times in historical documentary footage, it was amazing to actually be there. Documentation center and underground bunker labyrinth and our guide was so informative.

Booked a Viator half day trip to the Eagles Nest. We met the bus at the Mirabellplatz in town, a full size bus not a shuttle. Really knowledgeable guide who pointed out places of interest on the way and provided great information at the site. When we reached the base of the mountain we switched to other full size buses...

Our tour guide had been incredible knowledge of the area. It was interesting to learn the history of how the Eagle's Nest came to be, and that it was not Hitler's idea to build it. It was Boorman's birthday gift to Hitler, and Hitler rarely used it. Our guide brought history to life through his stories. It's also important to... More

We had the most helpful, clear, informative guide we have ever had for such a tour - her name is Amy. We left punctually in a coach with very simple headphones to hear Amy. She explained every possible detail for the whole time about the town, the whole history of Obersalzburg and Eagles Nest. We were all enthralled and really... More

The tour was informative pointing out where buildings had been located at we went up the hill. Going through the bunkers with a guide I'm sure was better than doing it on my own just reading information. We were there on a clear day and had great views. We just caught the bus back to Salzberg. Many people miss it.

With excellent guides, you will find out about the places the the people who had such a sinister effect in the world. You will see the places where Hitler, Eva Braun and his close collaborators planned the 2nd world war. From the Eagle's next on the top of the mountain, to the Berghof bunkers it is an amazing tour,
