About Berchtesgarden and Eagle’s Nest Tour
World War II has devastatingly abolished most of the histories associated with Hitler’s reign. Due to the bombing made by Royal Air Force, not much was left except for Eagle’s Nest. This Berchtesgarden and Eagle’s Nest Tour will give you the memory that has been an important part of Hitler’s history in Germany.
Between May and October, you will be privilege to see the beauty of Eagle’s Nest by means of a bus ride. But once you have reached the last 390 feet, you will be taking the elevator already. During winter or inclement weather where riding up the mountain is restricted, there is an alternative tourist attraction that you will visit, the Salt Mines. Equipped with the traditional mining gear, you will go down into the lowest point of the mine where you can see shimmering salt grattoes and a subterranean salt lake.
