This private 8-hour Best of the Bavarian Mountains tour will get you to those "must-see" spots and bring you to some local gems that only locals know about. A drive to the historical Eagle's Nest or Rossfeld summit in winter? You bet. Strolling along to a lake view point? Obviously! Visit a Salt Mine from the 12th century? Absolutely. Drive on off the beaten track-roads through the Bavarian Mountains? But of course! I'll take care of getting you there, getting you in, and getting you tapped into the secrets and insider's knowledge that make this one of the world's most fascinating destinations.
The Rossfeld Summit, neigbour summit of the Eagle's Nest, is a perfect option for the time the Eagle's Nest is closed, this is usually Nov-May, depends on the snow conditions.
Meet your local guide at your Salzburg hotel and hop on board of your luxury minivan. Afterward, your journey starts with a scenic drive from Salzburg past the Sound of Music meadow to Obersalzberg Eagle's Nest bus terminal, from there you will access the Eagle's Nest with bus and elevator. Take a stroll to the very close summit Kehlstein to overlook the picturesque Bavarian and Austrian Alps. During the winter months, the tour might visit Rossfeld summit instead to get a view of the Eagle's Nest from there, the view from the Rossfeld is also stunning!
Returning at the Obersalzberg the tour continues to the King's Lake (photo stop) and further on to Berchtesgaden for visiting the 490 years old mines. You will enter by train, use the miners slides and finally cross a salt-lake with a ferry boat before you will be driven out with the train again.
