Adventure at Eagle's Nest-Hike Tour
Enjoy a day of adventure combining amazing views and exciting war stories. First stop, meeting at the Obersalzberg! Once, one of the most secretive locations on Earth. From there we will start our hike up to the Eagle´s Nest. Very important to know is that I will navigate you through the mountain, set up an appropriate pace for all and establish breaks every 20 minutes. The hike takes on average 2:30 hours to complete. The distance of the hike up is 4,47 miles (7,2 km) and the gained altitude is 2857 feet (861 meters). The terrain is not technical but it is steep, and the forest provides with good coverage from the sun. On top, you will find the famous Eagle's Nest on the exact same way it was found in 1945 by the men of the 101's . There we will enjoy the rewards of our hike. Astonishing views, a picnic in the mountain (take the food you want to eat with you) or a visit to the restaurant. After exploring the alpine terrain, we will ride down (bus) the mountain back to the Obersalzberg where will finish exploring the area! The forest is filled with secret locations that tell the story of WWII, from the rise and fall of the third Reich(Hitler's Berghof, secret access to the bunkers, etc) that most people will never visit when in the area. The tour can be booked for groups.
Walk My Favorite Things in Salzburg
Let me show you my personal favorites in Salzburg, what made me fall in love with this city 8 years ago when I moved here during this lovely walk! Of course I will include the locations that you cannot miss while you are visiting, but perhaps from a different angle. I will point out places, art pieces, views and share with you stories that you might not discover or hear about otherwise. During this walk we will visit the centre of Salzburg, you will be able to enjoy its baroque gardens, stroll along its river the Salzach, see its opulent squares; walk amongst its many churches and hills, and along its narrow streets with beautiful pastel coloured houses. However, Salzburg is not only about the past, tradition and history. Let me show you this town's modern side, the art pieces, the contrast between old and new, which I personally love! I also think that being introduced to a city doesn't just mean walking around and learning about its past and seeing the sights. I think for the full experience you need to taste the traditional food and drinks, see a concert or visit a museum. That's the reason why I will give you restaurant and cafe recommendations, tell you about events and exhibitions that are happening now. At the end of our tour you will experience incredible views of the Old Town of Salzburg and the mountains. Please contact me if you don't see a time suitable for you. Other things to note How to recognise me: I'll be the one wearing the Austria Guide badge. Please arrive to the meeting point 10 minutes before start time. There will be opportunities to use public restrooms during our walk.
