Travel to the Alps – one day at the Eagle’s Nest Germany(second part) 2

In the tunnel you have to stand in line and you might need a jacket.  At the end of the tunnel is an elevator that you have to take to reach the Eagle’s Nest. After waiting around 15 minutes in the tunnel we finally reached the Eagles Nest.

On a good day from here you can see Konig See, Berchtesgaden and even Salzburg.We explored a bit the place and even found the hiking road taking us down. Too bad we already had  the return ticket bought.

We wanted to try the outdoor beer garden, but it was very crowded and after 20 minute wait with no drinks we went back to the bus.

Next time we will definitely try the hiking road.
