We bought tickets at the ticket office and got one of the buses up to the Eagles Nest. A very steep and winding road with great views. You tell the office at the top what time you are intending to go back down - we...More

This place is a must if you're into history and happen to be in the area. If you're doing the full tour it will take almost a whole day, so make sure you have that planned because you don't want to miss anything here.

Ended up here with the worst possible weather. It was raining the whole day and on the bus ride from the documentation centre to the lift, the visibility was less than 50m. We went ahead. The tunnel and lift are extravagant and kind of depicted...More

Obersalzberg is the real draw near here but The Eagles Nest has got the brand nailed. Definitely worth a trip up the golden elevator if you're in the area. On high, it's all about the gorgeous views (far more spectacular than the underground bunkers below)...More

Maybe it's just me but this place is just eerie and I couldn't imagine eating and drinking in this place. I know the proceeds go to orphanages, etc. but it's just creepy.
