Bus to the Eagles Nest

by lisa18752003

Hi there,

i have booked this as a tour on my previous trip to Germany but for my forthcoming trip in May i was hoping to stay in Berchtesgaden and just pay for the bus ride up to the Eagles Nest. Does it operate daily? the tours seem to only operate on a monday and friday. i have found timetables etc but they dont specify if they run daily, any help is greatly appreciated, also any hotel reccomendations :)

Re: Bus to the Eagles Nest

The bus will only go up to Eagle's Nest once it's open again, and this depends on the weather. We were in the area in May some years ago, even though several huts said on paper they'd reopen in mid May, they were actually still closed because of the snow.
If it keeps on snowing like it has so far, you may have to wait until June for the Eagle's Nest to open again and for the buses to go up there.
Bookmark the page of the tourist office and keep checking, send them an email in early May to find out the exact dates and times.

I can't help you with a hotel, we've been in Berchtesgaden a few times but stayed in an apartment. It's a great place, but you have to stay there a couple of days minimum.

Kehlstein (Eagle's Nest) bus line #849: prices and times for 2010
Won't change or at least not much for 2011.

These buses run daily (if I counted correctly 19 times per day). But of course only if the road is open. Which is yet not predictable. This depends on the amount of snow there falling during winter and How the temperatures in Spring will be.

The bus indeed runs quite often throughout the day. I self-drove to the big parking lot at its base last summer and the whole thing is quite organized: You buy an all-inclusive ticket to the Eagles' Nest (not a tour), which includes the bus (since private vehicles are prohibited from using the road up). Please note: You are required to reserve a place on a bus (of your choice) back down in advance - when you first arrive at the upper bus terminal.

Regarding accommodation, most hotels in Berchtesgaden are of very good quality. I have stayed at several ones over the years - but mostly outside or even in Königssee which is more scenic. But without car it is not so convenient.

You can check out hotels on the official website:

Make sure to go for one that has "Berchtesgaden" in the address line, or it will be in one of the villages in the vicinity.

For example, Hotel Krone, is only a few minutes' walk from the town centre.

Also, Alpenhotel Fischer, would be an option. Or Hotel Vierjahreszeiten and Wittelsbach right in the centre.

There is a new hotel named Edelweiß but I do not know it. Have not been there since its indicated opening in the middle of this year.

Travel Tips for Berchtesgaden


by Duffelgirl

Relax. The fresh air and the lazy pace of life is the ultimate remedy for the weary traveller! Berchtesgaden has some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen. When we got off the coach we were greated with Hansel and Gretel style houses, with a sprinkling of snowy icing sugar. I had landed into in a fairy-tale.


by iandsmith

It wasn't though as I was trying to avoid it. Nay, I had really wanted to see it. However, poor weather added to a dose of uncertainty (about how far it was) had conspired to deprive me of the experience of the so-called "painters' corner".
Called the Malerwinkel, after a famous brushman, it was deservedly popular in the 19th century with landscape painters. I'd found out that it was listed as a 90 minute loop walk and you can start either at the ferry wharf or Jennerbaum, the cable car base.
We chose the boathouse start and commenced the climb into the spruce forest. There used to be many beech, sycamore and fir trees here as well but forestry practices have altered the landscape forever.
The trail eventually arrives at a point that, to the unknowing observer, must be the famed Malerwinkel. It is here that you can choose to continue the loop walk or head off to the Koenigsbachfall, a waterfall originating at 1,600 metres about 2 kms further around Koenigsee.
It is not the best view though. No, another five minutes further along there is another gap, then a third, that offer better panoramas down this fabled fiord like landscape. It is easy to understand why a painter or photographer would desire to make this excursion. It's definitely a special place.
The track then continues further up before cresting over a small hill and then descending till you walk beneath the Jennerbahn and back to the carpark or, in my case, the bus stop.

Ski outfit

by Skanska

Remember the new rules within the European Union: carry all liquids in a see-though bag no more no less than 1 litre. No containers with fluids exceeding 100 ml, they will be confiscated by airport security.
The best thing to do is to keep all your toiletries in the checked in luggage, then you don't have to worry. Warm clothes in the winter. It gets cold, especially in the morning with the fog hanging low in the town. Also warm and comfortable booths for hiking.
Consider buying a ski outfit even though you are not skiing. It's adapted to the temperature and will keep you warm at all times. You'll wanna remember your camera for this trip. Soo much to see and shoot. If you're not shooting digital, there are plenty of shops where you can replenish your film stock.


by sandysmith

A nice hike can be made through the Wimbachtal, reaching the gorge in 15 minute. Water gushes through the gorge which is accessed by a series of steps and walkways so the waterfalls tumbling down its steep cliffs can be enjoyed. Allow 1 hour to reach the Wimbach castle and to reach the Wimbach-Gries-Hutte in another 1.5 hours. Bear in mind that the gorge is usually only passable betwwen May-Oct. There is a small entrance fee too.

Get the coach

by wodensson

The coach goes round and round the mountain until you are above the clouds, your ears pop you are that high up. When the coach stops you go through a tunnel and get into an old brass plated lift that takes you through the peak of the mountain to the top. Breath taking views.
