  • On the positive side, the views are just incredible and overwhelming. Getting there is a bit of an involved experience with lots of standing in line for tickets for the unique buses and picking times ...  more »
  • Eagle's nest was intended as a gift to Hitler-a representative building in unique surroundings. The bus trip, ingeniørskunsten, the Golden elevator and views Koenigsee justifies the time and money consumption.

  • Be and do not see it would be a flaw. And doing the same entrance through a tunnel and enter the elevator-unfortunately not given to us was to admire the views because it was a cloudy day

  • Superb place. Amazing views and fun people walking around. However the restaurant was not good. Dry dessert. No card accepted. And super rude waitress insisting on giving her tips for zero quality service. Check the place but ignore the restaurant. Better it on the way down.
  • A sobering and amazing day trip. Even in peak season this is worth a visit if you are a history buff. They have an amazing exposition and guided tour that explains lots about the attrocities carried out by the Nazis and the tour takes you through what's left of the bunkers that were originally built for Hitler and his party. The Eagles nest itself is a great experience whether you choose to do it on your own or through a tour group. There is a restaurant at the top with very reasonable prices and a terrace to enjoy the views. A beautiful day dedication to the men who fought to end the war and bring the Nazi party to justice.
  • Nice location, high up in the mountain with great views. Nearly all of the remaining links and traces to Hitler have been either destroyed or removed. It gets very busy, so do arrive early. If you elect to take the elevator up, I suggest 90-120 minutes to look around and appreciate the views, more if you want to eat. You can also hike up, but it's a moderate hike and not at all easy. Worse is the hike from the bottom, which takes several hours and is most definitely a moderate-strenuous hike.
  • Super nice view. Of hood weather get thwre early and then hicke around! Lovely no wondel Hitler liked it.
  • Historisch gesehen einen Ort wo mann hin sollte. A place to visit! A must-see! The lift going up to Eagle's nest is certainly worth the visit, so is the fireplace in the main building. At certain times of the year it is completely overcrowded. The restaurant is rather expensive and the food is OK. Wonderful views from the top over Königsee.
