Tour description provided by Viator

Begin your morning with panoramic views across the Alps from Hitler´s historic mountain retreat, known as the Eagle´s Nest. Then visit the town of Berchtesgaden with your Austria Guide and have time to purchase lunch in one of the typical Bavarian restaurants. In the afternoon you can either explore the underground world of a 500 year old salt mine or visit the Königsee, a glacial lake situated in a valley surrounded by mountains, and enjoy a boat ride to St Bartholomew’s.
Begin with a pickup from your central Salzburg hotel or any other location in the city chosen by you, and settle inside your private, deluxe minivan with your guide and separate driver. Then, set off on your guided tour, which focuses extensively on the Eagle’s Nest, Bavarian Alps, Lake Königssee, and Berchtesgaden and its salt mine.As your tour is private, the itinerary is flexible, so feel free to talk to your guide about the venues you want to visit and the places you may want to see more or less of. Your guide will provide a few itinerary options for you to select from and advise on the weather conditions, so you can be sure to cover the best of, and the right, sites on the day.Having a fully licensed guide and chauffeur ensures a high quality service and maximum flexibility. You can leave your vehicle at any time with your guide, while your car and driver wait for you. Plus, your guide can give you their full attention while your chauffeur concentrates on the driving, ensuring a smooth, safe, and comfortable ride.After leaving Salzburg, and depending on your wishes, head first for Adolf Hitler’s former retreat of the Eagle’s Nest, and soak in the panoramic views across the Alps from this mountaintop building.Then, descend the mountain to visit the town of Berchtesgaden with your guide. Enjoy time to stroll and have lunch (own expense) in one of its typical Bavarian restaurants, and afterward, set off to explore the 500-year-old underground salt mine or visit Lake Königssee, a glorious glacial lake nestled in an epic mountain-framed valley.Here, opt to take a boat ride across the mirror-glass waters to St. Bartholomew’s Church, an exquisite red-domed church with a 12th-century chapel, set against the soaring mountain backdrop.Lastly, drive back to Salzburg where your tour finishes with a drop-off at your hotel or another central spot of your choosing.
