- Explore one of Germany's best-known tourist destinations
- Chance to visit either the Eagle's Nest or the famous salt mines
On wintery days, when higher Alpine peaks such as the Obersalzberg are laden with ice and snow, the Eagle’s Nest is unavailable. In this case you’ll be taken to the legendary salt mines of Berchtesgaden, the oldest active salt mine in Germany, which has been in operation since the 13th century. Whichever of these two visits you take, you’ll be in good company - they are some of the most-visited destinations in the country, so fascinating are their respective histories, so spectacular is the scenery.
