If you are into history or like history, you may be interested in this. Along the way, the tour guide will give you some historical background to this eagle's nest. The view from eagle's nest is stunning. Hitler's teahouse has now become a restaurant so if you go on your own, not following local tour, you can have lunch at the teahouse. It is worth a trip and be prepared for some slight climbing up to the top to view the Alps. Do wear comfortable and good grip shoes as the rocks on the hills are slippery even on sunny days

The Guide Frau Ursula is a professional, we learned a lot of new things about München and all of the Sights we visited. She is a friendly Person, she took care of all of us. We had a great Time, everything was well organized. I am recommending this Tour, it s worth it

This is a very nice tour of a historically significant building and area which also has amazingly beautiful scenery. The drive from Munich and back is comfortable and efficient. It goes even faster with the information provided by the guide. On my tour, we were lucky enough to have Elizabeth as our guide and Martin as our driver. The tour was interesting with a good amount of free time to enjoy the Eagle's Nest and mountain area paths on your own for a while and had some good background on the area and the construction of the site. Unfortunately, the documentation center was not open and access to the bunker system was not available during my visit.
