  • The bus and elevator ride to the top of the mountain where the Eagle's nest is are quite pricey for what is provided. When you are at the top, there is a restauant and small kiosk, but other than...  more »
  • Totally not worth it. It costs 28€ and the views are not stunning, it's crowded and there are so many other free optiions around. Don't go with a tour. Just pay 10,6€ for a complete day bus ticket...  more »
  • Great view of mountains from the top but expensive bus trip up to the base station just for a view. Nothing to say Nazis were ever there or historical (prevents right wing focus I suppose...  more »
  • Although an outstanding view, the actual history of the Eagles Nest is pretty light. Hitler only visited a few times, but still, this was Hitler’s mountaintop tearoom. Enjoy the views and remember the U.S. 101st Airborne who were the first ones there at the end of the war. There’s no presentation here but there are indoor and outdoor dining options. After you eat you can have a nice hike back down to the bus pickup spot for your ride back down the mountain.
  • The only reason why I am giving this 3 stars is because I really expected a lot of history and what I got was a restaurant. The food and service was great but if it wasn't it wouldn't matter anyways you are trapped way up on top of a mountain with no way down So here is my advice go see it it's a great view but understand that's it. It's a major tourist trap. Not expensive people are great it just has no history info hardly and that's a shame. They could make that place so much better. It's just to bad
  • This is an absolutely fantastic place to visit and you cannot miss it!!! Hitler was only reported to have visited this location a few times, but it is absolutely amazing to be able to walk in the same areas where he and other high ranking Nazi's may have walked. The weather can turn bad here in a matter of minutes. There were several lightning strikes within miles of our peak during my visit. You (and family members, etc.) need to have a plan of where to gather in the event the weather turns and you need to seek shelter. There are cliffs all around you. Make sure you keep a close eye on all children! Make sure you wear the proper clothing in the mountains, no matter how clear it is when you plan to visit, suggest hiking boots, hat, rain jacket and the right socks. Ride the elevator up and then walk the pathway down. I saw people wearing flip-flops and they were not doing well when the weather suddenly turned. Use common sense, don't be stupid! The food and service at the top is excellent. There are some black colored birds which are very fun to feed if you can get some fresh bread from your waiter. Have a great time, just be very careful and watch the weather closely.
  • Be prepared. It's too high. Just come to see the view. The house is too small and not so interesting. But if you are interested to see the view and to eat something in this place, so I can recommend it
  • The Eagle`s Nest is great place to visit! Whole story behind it was fascinating. Built in just 13 months, as gift for one of severe rulers in Europe, on breathtaking location, The Eagle`s Nest is something you have to see and experience. There is a good restaurant with fine food and cold beer, and also price is fair.
