Dates – the above packages are not linked to any particular dates, however, due to its high elevation, the Eagle’s Nest is only open from about mid-May through to the end of October. It is closed in the winter. If you wish to travel in the winter we are able to offer a private Obersalzberg, Documentation Centre & Bunker tour, subject to availability.
Flexible arrangements – All the above independent and group packages are flexible and can be mixed and matched if feasible or can be tailor-made to your exact requirements. The sample packages for the independent traveller are not subject to a minimum number of participants, though they are based on two persons travelling together, so if you are a solo traveller we can provide you with the single supplement.
Flights – Direct flights to Munich currently include the following airports: London Heathrow; London Gatwick; London Stansted; London Luton; Birmingham; Manchester; Newcastle; Bristol, Cardiff, however routes change constantly, so please ask us for your preferred airport and we will check for you.
The prices include hand luggage only.
Self-Drive/Air-Rail/Rail holidays -these holidays can also be taken as self-drive, air-rail or rail holidays.
Eagle’s Nest – The half-day guided tour for the independent traveller is private and as such you will be transported in a van. The van can transport up to 4 people, however, we have based the cost of 2 people travelling together – naturally, if 4 of you travel together this price will be reduced. For parties of 5-8 participants transport is in an 8 passenger minibus.
Please note that for technical reasons we are unable to include the cost of the mountain bus nor admission fee to the Documentation Centre, but these ancillary costs will be supplied to you on booking.
Please note that for World War 2 history buffs we can extend the guided tour to a full day to give you the full experience of the Third Reich in Berchtesgaden with sights of your choice.
Accommodation – for the independent traveller we can offer a wide variety of hotel options in Berchtesgaden, subject to availability. To experience the true atmosphere of the era we are sometimes able to offer rooms in a historical hotel in Obersalzberg, however, you need to be prepared for authenticity rather than comfort. On the other end of the spectrum, we can offer deluxe accommodation in the modern 5 -star hotel built slightly further up the mountain. Naturally, we can offer 3-star hotels and 4-star hotels in the town of Berchtesgaden or in the surrounding area if you have a car.
