Highlights

  • Private tour for complete convenience
  • Ride on a lift through the heart of Kehlstein Mountain
  • Admire the view from the top of Eagle’ s nest

Taking the road from Obersalzberg, Adolf Hitler’s former home and southern headquarters, to the Eagle’s Nest is an experience in itself. Blasted out of solid rock in a record thirteen months, the road is a one of a kind and an impressive work of engineering that climbs up the Kehlstein Mountain towards the Eagle’s Nest car park.

The building itself was a project by Martin Bormann and presented to Adolf Hitler for his 50th birthday as a teahouse for diplomats. It escaped bombing during WWII and has since been open to the public as a restaurant and historical monument. The stunning views over the Berchstesgadener Land could almost make you forget the building’s start, but the building and brass-lined lifts that take you up through the heart of the mountain up into the restaurant, also serve as a stark reminder of the power of the National Socialist regime.
