This should definitely be on anybodies bucket list!!! What an incredible place.. So much history this place holds, both interesting and chilling. The bus journey up to the Eagle's Nest is insane! The views you get whilst you are on the top of the mountain...More

Beautiful spot overlooking the bay. Food was great, vegetarian options, friendly staff, and spotted some eagles and a sea-lion in the bay. Only complaint was on the deck there were very full coffee containers of cigarette buds that was kinda a turn off. Otherwise great...More

When you consider the history of the area the Eagles Nest is a must see. Parking at the bus station on the Obersalzburg was only 3 Euros for the day (get there early before it fills up) and with the Tennagau card the ticket prices...More

If there is a place which you must see before you die, Eagles Nest stands right up there on my list. The bus ride, the walk through the tunnel and finally the ride up through the lift till you get to the top is exciting....More

We made the mistake to visit the Eagles Nest on a cloudy morning. The weather looked decent from where you buy tickets but as the bus climbed towards the top, we entered into a terrible fog. By the time we got to the Eagles Nest,...More

We paid €3 to park here. There is a restaurant and toilets at the car park. We arrived just after 9 and by the time our bus left at 9.45 it was already very busy. Buses up seemed to go every 1/2 hour. 5 went...More

You have to take a bus from the visitors' center. Then you have to walk through this damp, creepy tunnel to a rather elaborate elevator. All of this is original. Once you get outside you realize you are high in the Bavarian Alps. This place...More

We booked with Panorama tours in Salzburg, we left at 08.30 and met the buses at the car park to the Eagles Nest at 10.00, I think they run quite frequently but would recommend going with an organised tour.
