Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest, Berchtesgaden and Koenigsee
Explore Hitler’s Hide-a-way in the mountains of Germany!
Hitler's Eagle's Nest
Drive a stunning route through lush Alpine meadows, craggy mountain peaks, and green forests into the charming town of Berchtesgaden to visit the Dokumentation Obersalzburg, which ofers a thorough examination of the Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. Then take private transport up to Kehlsteinhaus (Hitler’s holiday retreat for his elite diplomatic guests) for a tour of the underground bunker system and fortress compound and to marvel the spectacular panoramic views from ‘the nest’. Then venture to another mountain top, to behold the discrete & divine pilgrimage church Maria Gern. Followed by a traditional mountain top meal... the delicacy, Bauernschmauß (Farmer’s Delight), to experience true Gemütlichkeit. Then continue to the crystal clear glacial Lake Königsee to take a boat ride on the shimmering emerald-green waters to the architectural jewel, St. Bartholomä. [$125] This haven of peace and quiet is truly Heaven on earth.
