    Eagles Nest

    October 5, 2018 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 50 °F

    Here we are on the top of the mountain. To get here is 20 minutes on a subway - 2h on a big bus - 1/2 hour on little bus-walk through a tunnel - take an elevator up 240 meters and you are there. Impressive location.Read more

    Eagle's Nest

    October 12, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    After we finished our toboggan run, we took a short 15 minute drive to the car park at the base of Eagle's Nest. In a highly efficient operation (we are in Germany after all), we were on one of many specially designed buses which can manage the narrow road going up. Once we get up, you then walk through a 124 metre tunnel, to get in a brass lift to go up 124 metres, which pops you out right inside Kehlsteinhaus. It has been operated as a restaurant since the 1930s, with all proceeds from the leasing and tourism venture going to charity.

    The views across the Alps are incredible. The sun terrace where many of the famous photographs of Hitler and Braun were taken is now simply a corridor to another part of the restaurant, with information panels and archival photographs in place. This is the only reference to the Nazi Party that we saw at the actual site.

    We ate lunch out on the terrace with splendid views. I admit though I was surprised as I had more of an idea of it having a large grassed slope behind it, but perhaps I am just mixing up various archival footage in my mind.

    Wow - that really is amazing and not overly crowded considering the lovely weather. I assume it was int he guide books.

    TripAdvisor - well visited, but the people seem to disseminate when you got to the top

    Long day of adventure. Took 2 hour train trip east to visit the town of Berchtesgaden and Kehlsteinhaus (the ‘Eagles Nest’), Hitlers private mountain retreat. Enjoyed dinner at Hofbrauhaus Berchtesgaden biergarten and ice cream enroute back to the train station.Read more

    Kehlsteinhaus oder auch Eagles Nest genannt, war ein Geburtstagsgeschenk für Adolf Hitler. Heute ist das Haus ein Restaurant mit traumhafter Aussicht. Nur schon die Anreise,- mit Spezialbussen und einem Lift durch den Berg machen es sehr speziell.
    Ein Ausflug der sich, auch wenn das Wetter nicht soooo toll war, gelohnt hat und den ich gerne wiederholen werde.

    Blick aufs Kehlsteinhaus


    Felsig aber mit toller Aussicht. Die Wege sind gut machbar,- sofern man nicht gleich offene Schuhe trägt!

    Das Kehlsteinhaus aka The Eagles Nest

    August 10, 2016 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 6 °C

    For our Summertrip 2016 we first went to the famous "The Eagles Nest" im Obersalzber. We drove with a bus on top of the mountain to the Eagles nest, which was Hitlers vacation home.
    Being there we walked though the House and ate at the now Restaurant for German food.
    Despite a lot of tourists the food was really good! The server was super friendly and all in one a great stay!
    Back down the mountain we went to the museum where in 1939 stood Hitlers privat home the Obersalzberg (which the us Army bombed to dust in the late 1945 and the are was still theres till 1995) it was a great history lesson. The only minus point that they are getting from us is the lack of english translations at the museum. Besides that it is well made!
