Spend a day in the Alps and visit the Eagle's Nest, 'The Where Eagle's Dare Castle' of Werfen and admire at the Golling Waterfalls. Next to the historical Eagle's Nest the 11th century Fortress Hohenwerfen, one of the most magnificent mountain fortifications in the Alps, is another top highlight of this 8-hour private tour from Salzburg.From April 1st to about May 10th (depends on the snow conditions of the year), the Eagle's Nest direct access road is closed, alternatively we offer to visit the Rossfeld summit instead. From this vantage point, soak in panoramic views of the stunning Austrian and Bavarian Alps and the nearby Eagle's Nest. Feel free to choose this option also when Eagle's Nest is opened if you prefer a much less crowded, more local site than the Eagle's Nest.
