The original Eagles Nest and the Eagles Nest from the movie plus a picturesque waterfall
Spend a day at the Eagle's Nest and visit "The Where Eagle's Dare Castle" in Werfen. Next to the historical Eagle's Nest the 11th century Fortress Hohenwerfen is another top highlight of this 8-hour private tour from Salzburg.
The Castle of Werfen is one of the most magnificent mountain fortifications in the Alps and was also used in the "Where Eagle's Dare" movie with Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood. It was the castle of Werfen which was used as Eagle's Nest, not the original location at the Bavarian Alps.
From April 1st to May 10th, 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.
Meet your professional local guide and driver at your Salzburg hotel and hop on board of your luxury minivan. Afterward, your journey will take you on beautiful backroads pass the Sound of Music meadow to the Obersalzberg Region.
From that historical point we will access the Eagle's Nest with special busses and elevator. You will have 2 hours at the Eagle's Nest. Take a stroll to the very close summit Kehlstein to overlook the picturesque Bavarian and Austrian Alps.
Returning at the Obersalzberg the drive goes on backroads to the town of Golling with the unique Gollinger Waterfall, a real great natural spectacle.
Afterward, along the Salzach River valley to Werfen to have lunch right at the castle before you will marvel at the bird-of-prey show conducted by historic State Falconers, mainly featuring native free-flying raptors!
