What you can expect

Cross the border into Germany to discover the picture-perfect Bavarian Alps and the gravity-defying Eagle's Nest. Marvel at the scenic beauty of Germany's Obersalzberg region and take a leisurely stroll on the enchanting cobbled streets of Berchtesgaden.

Leaving Salzburg behind, head through the countryside of southern Germany. Admire the fairytale landscape before stopping at Obersalzberg, a mountainside retreat first used by 19th-century intellectuals and industrialists and later by senior officials of the Third Reich.

Listen as your guide describes the key role this region played during World War II before embarking on a specialised bus to the Eagle's Nest. After a gravity-defying bus trip and a speedy lift ride, you reach the mountain's summit, 6,017 feet (1,834 m) in the air.

Presented to Hitler as a gift on his 50th birthday, the Eagle's Nest was used as a conference centre and then as an Allied command post after World War II. Explore the old conference room, dining area, and small tea room, and take in the stunning view from the terraces.

Once refreshed by the mountain air, continue to Berchtesgaden—a postcard-perfect town considered amongst the most scenic towns in Europe—before making your way back to Salzburg.
