We head out along the Old Town of Salzburg following the Salzach out of the city, past the legendary and mythical Untersberg Mountain and to the old border crossing into Germany. We continue alongside the King’s Lake River on our drive through the striking Bavarian alpine valley with its picturesque farms and villages. A short ascent up the lower part of the Obersalzberg allows for a glimpse of the Eagle’s Nest at the summit and a view of the valley below. Our destination is the King’s Lake (Königssee) nestled among the steep and imposing mountains of the Bavarian Alps. After your stay at the lake, we head into the charming town of Berchtesgaden for a brief stop before returning to Salzburg.
Bavarian Mountains and Salt Lake:
We leave the city of Salzburg, pass the Untersberg Mountain, full of legend and myth, and enter Germany by the old border crossing and travel through the alpine valley heading to the Obersalzberg. Little is left to be seen in the Third Reich except the Eagle’s Nest perched atop its summit. You may catch a glimpse of it as we head up the lower part of the mountain. It is inside this mountain, however, that the real adventure begins. Donning traditional miner’s clothes, you enter the 450-year-old mines by train to hear fascinating tales and facts about this underground world. There is nothing to fear as you descend into the grottos using the slides hundreds of miners have before. A brief visit to the village of Berchtesgaden before returning to Salzburg completes the tour.
Heading out of Baroque Salzburg, we cross the old Austrian-German border into Bavaria. We drive through the valley, passing scenic farmhouses to reach the foot of the Obersalzberg. Continuing up the mountain to the bus terminal, we change to special coaches equipped to take us up the rest of the ascent to the brass elevator of the Eagle’s Nest. The WWII elevator transports us to the Eagle’s Nest perched on top of the mountain. From here, we have a magnificent view of the towering snow-capped peaks of the Bavarian Alps and the surrounding countryside. It is but a short walk from here to the cross on the summit of the Obersalzberg. After the descent back into the valley, we head to the picturesque Bavarian village of Berchtesgaden for a shortstop before returning to Salzburg.
