  • I liked my visit to take in the views and to say that ive visited The Eagles Nest.... however, it does feel like it's being run just to get money from tourists. You pay, I think €16 for a return bus trip then you get to the top and it's a good view and restaurant. Would really liked to have seen more information on how it was built and stories of its wartime history etc although appreciate that some people don't want to be reminded of this, I think the younger generation should be educated on our collective past.
  • This is a very interesting place to visit and the history behind it is quite fascinating. The views are stunning and as others have noted, the bus ride to the top (or at least where you go into a tunnel in the mountain and ride a golden elevator the final leg of the trip up) is quite an experience. If you are lucky the weather will be clear and you can take in the amazing views from up here. Have some coffee at the cafe while you are there like we did, it was good.
  • The view was amazing! We were a little disappointed that wasn't any historical info or tours. This tour isn't for someone with a fear of heights although you can push through at some parts. Round trip bus tickets are €16 during peak season. They take card or cash.
  • We were lucky to go on a sunny day so we had great views which really turned this place into a 4 star adventure. I was a little disappointed that there wasn't more "historic stuff" here. So if you expect a Museum, this is not the place to go. If you're going on a sunny day with the right expectations I'd recommend it.
  • The view from the summit is amazing, but unfortunately the history of this house is not documented on top (there are some signs in German though) - the only thing you can do: having lunch in the restaurant and enjoying the view. Very crowded in summertime at certain "rush hours" (30 minutes to wait for the elevator; but you can also walk to the top).
