Tour of the Bavarian Mountains

Explore the beauty of the mountains of the nearby Berchtesgaden area 

This tour takes you south of Salzburg and then west to the nearby area of Berchtesgaden. Several opportunities are offered during this tour, including the Salt Mine of Hallein, Dürrnberg, with its rich history spanning more than 2500years, the valley of Salzach and the city of Hallein before crossing the border to Bavaria.  We will then drive to the Obersalzberg, where Hitler had his “Berghof”, the summer seat of the political party and where decisions on peace and war were made. The period between May and November provide the best possibility of touring Hitler’s eagles nest (the documentation center is open year round). We will then drive to the village of Berchtesgaden, a town whose history dates back to the 12th century, and then to the lake of Hintersee and the church of Ramsau (a painting of which can be found in the White House in Washington, D.C.), or the Koenigssee bedded within steep mountains that are among the tallest in Germany!
