Eagle's Nest

A unique view of the Berchtesgadener Land region
 
If you want to experience the Berchtesgaden Alps in their unmistakeable beauty, you should plan a trip to the Eagle's Nest. At an altitude of 1,820 metres, the Eagle's Nest rules over an indescribable mountain backdrop. Depending on the route you take, it can take you two to three and a half hours to get to the top… but it's worth it! If you prefer not to hike, you can also take a bus and cable car up to the Eagle's Nest.

Those who wish to make the journey on foot can expect it to be a challenge, but will be rewarded by the stunning views these routes can offer. The more comfortable bus journey does, however, also have its plus points.

TAKE THE EAGLE'S NEST LIFT UP TO THE VIEWING AREA

The lower terminus of the Obersalzbergbahn mountain railway is only a ten-minute walk from the EDELWEISS. This is where your journey to the Eagle's Nest begins. Then, you take a special bus from Hintereck am Obersalzberg up to the spectacular Eagle's Nest road.

Once you're up there, you'll come to the Eagle's Nest tunnel, at the end of which the lift to the house will be waiting. The lift will take you the remaining 140 metres up to the Eagle's Nest house in a matter of seconds. Here, the breath-taking view of the Berchtesgaden Alps awaits you.

REFRESHMENTS IN THE "EAGLE'S NEST" INN

The Eagle's Nest house is now a mountain restaurant. Once you reach the top, you'll be glad of a little refreshment! With its long-standing kitchen and incomparable views, the inn draws guests from all over the world.

THE HISTORY OF THE EAGLE'S NEST

Alongside the eventful journey up to the top and the stunning views, the history of the Eagle's Nest shouldn't go unmentioned. This was one of Adolf Hitler's most favourite places. He visited the area many times. The Eagle's Nest remains a symbol of the National Socialist dictatorship and, therefore, a contemporary memorial to all those who suffered and died at the hands of the regime.
