    Berchtesgaden - View from the Eagle's Nest

    Monday - Berchtesgaden
    This excursion takes you to the Royal Bavarian Spa town of Berchtesgaden in Germany, famous for its old working salt mines (optional €17 adult, €9.50 child) and Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest (optional €16.60 adult, €9.60 child).

    The road leading from Obersalzburg (formerly Hitler's home and southern headquarters) to the Eagle’s Nest parking lot is widely considered to be a real feat of engineering. The Eagle’s Nest, perched at 1.834 m (6.017 ft), was a project of Martin Bormann's and given to Adolf Hitler for his 50th birthday as a teahouse for diplomats.

    Salt mining has a long tradition in Berchtesgaden. The wealth of the whole region has its origin in the white gold. You will be given a guided tour of the complex tunnel system, which makes up part of the 500 year old mine and will discover the origins of the famous Bad Reichenhall salt.

    It is possible to visit both the salt mines and the Eagle’s Nest during the excursion. For those guests not wishing to visit either the Salt Mines or the Eagle’s Nest, there is time to explore the Bavarian town of Berchtesgaden. All guests will be in Berchtesgaden for a short lunch break (lunch is not included).

    Passports are required on this excursion. This excursion is not recommended for wheelchair users due to having to board the bus and the lift to the teahouse.
    Please pay for both optional visits on the excursion coach.

    Price:
    Adult € 33, excluding optional visits
    Child € 17, excluding optional visits

Strong shoes are recommended. The temperature in the cave is approx. 0°C, so visitors should be warmly dressed.

    Hallstatt salt mine
    This excursion takes you to the UNESCO World Heritage Salt Mine in the beautiful lakeside village of Hallstatt. This is the world’s oldest salt mine and site where a Celtic miner was found in 1734. He was well preserved by the salt and estimated to be about 2500 years old. The discovery was a scientific sensation at the time. The guided tour of the mine will explain the 7 000 year old mining history of the “white gold”, which has dominated the Hallstatt region for centuries. It begins with a ride on a funicular railway to the entrance of the mine. You will then dress up in an old miner’s outfit and ride a small train into the mountain, where salt was mined and be able to use the huge slides to arrive at the various levels of the mine.
    This excursion is not suitable for visitors with walking difficulties, wheelchairs or buggies. Warm clothes and strong shoes are recommended. The fee for the funicular railway and the entrance to the salt mine and are not included – they are payable on the coach, €30 for adults and €15 for children (4 - 15 years).

    Visit Hallstatt, one of the most beautiful villages in the region, nestled along the shores of the lake of the same name. Since 1998 Hallstatt has been recognised by the World Herritage Organisation UNESCO. The village owes its name and history to the salt mined in its mountain. You will have time to explore the village at your own pace. You may decide to visit the parish church and cemetery, dating from the 12th century, take a round-trip on the lake (not included, from the beginning of June to the end of September), explore the narrow alleys of the village, or travel by funicular railway (not included) to enjoy a breath-taking view of the of the whole of the Dachstein-Hallstättersee Region.
