Detailed, in depth, full day WWII historical tour of the Berchtesgaden area


The Berchtesgaden area holds so much historical value with regards to World War II. During the Third Reich the Obersalzberg was the Southern Headquarters for the National Socialist Party with many of the top leaders owning homes here, and many important political decisions made here. This lengthy private tour is perfect for history buffs wishing to discover the extensive history of this area. . .

This full day tour comprehensively covers a multitude of the historically important sites on the Obersalzberg, including the more hidden locations that most tourists never hear about. While there are many tour options that include this area, most will only stop off at the most well known spots. I will also include the secrets hidden on the mountainside which really provide an authentic account of the fascinating history of this area.

In addition, the mountain scenery is extremely beautiful and on a clear day you will be surrounded by stunning panoramic views of the Bavarian Alps and the valley below.

Itinerary

This tour is for those with a fervent interest in learning as much as possible about the history of the area. Covering all of the more well known sites, the tour would also include exploration of the more hidden secret areas, such as (but not limited to):

A Recent Review of this tour

Not just a guide, a Professor!!! I'm interested in Third Reich history for almost 35 years and visiting Berchtesgaden is a dream come true!!!! Tom is outstandingly well informed. He studied many topics deeply and met a lot of witnesses of this era... Tom is also the guide to choose if you want to discover the heart of Berchtesgaden . I recommend him very highly and hope to have another tour with him in the future. Thank you Tom!
