Bavarian and "Eagle"

Expedition in Salzburg

Duration : 5-8 hours Languages: Russian English German

A few kilometers south of Salzburg is the natural gem of Bavaria, the Berchtesgaden National Park. Five main attractions attract visitors from all over the world: salt caves, where salt is still mined, Lake Königssee, at the foot of the Watzmann mountain - the second highest in Germany, the resort town of Berchtesgaden, and the Eagle's Nest - a gift to Hitler from the NSDAP.

The historical significance of these places cannot be overestimated: being an independent spiritual principality, Berchtesgaden was a significant competitor to the Salzburg princes-archbishops in the extraction of salt in Central Europe. The Bavarian rulers of the Wittelsbach made the lands of Berchtesgaden their health resort, because it was believed that where there is salt, there is health. To this day, mineral salts mined from underground in these unique places are used in medicine to treat various diseases. After becoming Chancellor of Germany in 1933, Hitler temporarily moved his headquarters to Berchtesgaden on the Obersalzberg mountain.

There, on the top of Mount Kelstein (1834 m), for especially important diplomatic meetings, an estate was built for him, which later received the name "Eagle's Nest". In addition to historical facts, you will learn how the Bavarian hinterland lives today, enjoy the beautiful views of the Alps, mountain rivers and lakes, drink Bavarian beer and taste national dishes. Depending on the time available and your interests, there are many extras that can be added to the tour, making it appealing to guests of all ages. The duration of the tour is from 5 to 8 hours.
