We did not get a chance to go up to the Eagle’s Nest, but the document center was very disappointing.

It's one of those places you should definitely visit once. It's special - I suppose for all the wrong reasons. Hitler spent a lot of time here. You can see why. It's stunning. The trip up from the lovely town of Berchtesgaden (worth visiting in itself) is very nice and the scenery is just amazing. Many of the features of the Nest have been retained from the War. If you are into Second WW history this is a must. I loved going and will return.

On the positive side, the views are just incredible and overwhelming. Getting there is a bit of an involved experience with lots of standing in line for tickets for the unique buses and picking times for pick up and delivery. We were told that we should plan on at least 2 hrs at the top. We thought there would be historical items related to the original use of the site. The elevator was original but the effort to erase any memory of previous occupation is apparent. Basically there is just a restaurant up there. There is one hallway with some old photos and a fireplace that has interesting history. Everything else has been obliterated. We were there in May and the snow was still deep on the hiking trail to the summit. After an hour and a beer we were ready to go back down.

An interesting place to visit. The trip to the Eagle’s Nest is an adventure in itself but fun all the same. Once at the top you have to wait in a tunnel for the lift which is opulent but be aware, they pack in as many people as possible so not for the claustrophobic. Obviously you are at the top of the mountain so the weather is changeable and it gets cold quickly. The building itself is now a restaurant and fills up quickly. The food looked good but we didn’t eat. Unfortunately, the weather was not on our side as the mist rolled in making visability poor. When the clouds rolled away briefly, the view was breathtaking but make the most of it as it can be covered again in an instant. There is always a queue for the lift done and as your allocated bus does not wait for you, make sure you get down in time. The toilets are basic and the ladies are busy so again, factor this into your timing.
