Visit the Royal Bavarian Spa town, famous for its old working salt mines (optional € 17 adult, € 9,50 child) and Hitler´s Eagles Nest (optional € 16,60 adult, € 9,60 child). Salt mining has a long tradition in Berchtesgaden. The wealth of the whole region has its origin in the white gold. You will be given a guided tour of the complex tunnel system, which makes up part of the 500 year old mine, and will discover the origins of the famous Bad Reichenhall salt. The road leading from Obersalzberg (formerly Hitler´s home and southern headquarters) to the Eagle´s Nest parking lot is widely considered to be a real feat of engineering. Perched at 1.834m (6.017 ft), the building itself was a project of Martin Bormann´s and given to Adolf Hitler for his 50th birthday as a teahouse for diplomats. Passports are required on this exursion, It is possible to visit either the Salt Mines or the Eagle´s Nest during the excursion. For those guests wishing to visit neither the Salt Mines not the Eagle.
