  • 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 eat it on the way down.
  • The Eagle’s Nest is an awesome spot for tourists. I strongly recommend planning a full day around this place, as there is much to do. Apart from a small museum and a restaurant, there are miles and miles of hiking trails. Some of the trails are pretty intense - not for the inexperienced hiker. Very cool views all around!
  • One hell of a view and a great place to have a picnic. One of the most breathtaking places I’ve ever been to, with so much more to see than meets the eye.
  • Went on a rainy day and still had a great time. You'll have to wait in line for the elevator but it's worth it for the view. The food is pretty good too.
  • We walked up from Berchtesgaden train station without a bus or cable car. That said, it was March and the transit options weren’t available. We walked almost to the very top (beyond the info centre which was also closed) and ultimately had to turn back because the snow was up to our knees!! We had an amazing day though and absolutely could not get enough of the astonishing scenery. Trains from Salzburg we’re fairly simple and locals were very keen to give us a helping hand when they saw us reading the timetables. Highly recommend!
