The Eagle's Nest or Rossfeld summit in winter, Golling Waterfalls and the 'Where Eagles Dare Castle of Werfen'.
Spend a day in the Alps and visit the historical Eagle's Nest, 'The Where Eagle's Dare Castle' in 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.
Meet your 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 to the Obersalzberg Region. From that historical point you will access the Eagle's Nest with special busses and elevator. You will have 2 free hours at the Eagle's Nest.
Returning at the Obersalzberg the drive goes on backroads to a hidden gem of the area, the natural wonder of Golling Waterfalls. Next is Werfen with its Middle-ages Castle of Werfen.
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. Enjoy some good Austrian 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!
Return to your Salzburg accommodation or city center of Salzburg at the end of the day.
