Eagles´s Nest, Salt Mine & National Park of Berchtesgaden
From the foot of the Obersalzberg, hop on a special coach that will take you to the WWII-era brass elevator, which then whisks you up to the Eagle’s Nest, perched on top of the mountain. Enjoy magnificent views of the towering snowcapped peaks of the Bavarian Alps and the surrounding countryside. It is a short walk from here to the cross on the summit of the Obersalzberg.
Below Obersalzberg are the 450-year-old salt mines. Walk in miners’ footsteps as you don a traditional mining outfit and descend into the grottos. Hear fascinating tales and learn interesting facts about this underground world from your guide, and then end your mining adventure with a raft sail on the salt lake and a train trip around the lake.
