A place with a landscape that make you speechless.
Eagle’s Nest (Kehlsteinhaus in German) is located in Berchtesgaden, Germany. It was built for Adolf Hitler as his 50th birthday present. It is 1834m above sea level and if the weather is good you can see even as far as Salzburg (35km).
When visiting Eagle’s Nest it is easiest to leave your car on the park place of Obersalzberg – from there you have to go forward by common bus transport. The road up is narrow and height differences are big so even the bus trip is a huge experience.
- The first bus transport departures at 8.55 and then after every 25 minutes.
- Last trip up is at 16.00 and down at 16.50.
- The price for bus ticket (incl. bus trip up and down) adults 16,60€ and children over 14 years 9,60€
The bus will transport passangers near Eagle’s Nest and there you will walk inside the mountain. Then there will be a “golden” elevator that will take the passangers up.
There is a restaurant at Eagle’s Nest were you can have a dinner or something to drink.
The Eagle’s Nest is open from from middle of May to middle of October.
