One may also ask, how do I get from Berchtesgaden to Eagles Nest? From the city Berchtesgaden you get by bus line 838 or by car to the Kehlstein bus departure point at Obersalzberg. From there only the Eagle's Nest busses are allowed to continue to the Eagle's Nest. They depart every 25 minutes for the upper bus parking area.

Also asked, can you visit the Berghof?

Its unusual position made it a unique engineering feat. What few realize is that Hitler's home (the Berghof) and southern headquarters – his second seat of power – were located on Obersalzberg, at the foot of the Eagle's Nest mountain. Due to its high elevation, the Eagle's Nest generally can't open until mid May.
