Your first stop is the museum and bunker system. David breezes you through the museum, only looking at Berchtesgaden-related information (you can use your ticket to come back again the next day to see the rest of the museum). Then you are led into part of the underground bunker system while he explains how and why they were built.
You then board a special Eagle's Nest bus which drives you up the 27% grade mountain to the Kehlsteinhaus (Eagle's Nest). You walk through the tunnel and take the brass elevator up to the top. David shows you the inside of the haus, which is not open to anyone who isn't on a guided tour. The building is now a restaurant whose proceeds go to charity. The view from the top of the mountain is amazing and there are plenty of opportunities for great pictures. We were lucky enough to be there on the very first day of it's unseasonably early opening. There was still mounds of snow on the ground.
David's tour is the only licensed tour of the area, due to the fact that German's do not want to give Nazi sympathizers any pilgramiges to these sites. If you plan on going to the Eagle's Nest, you should take this tour. You will not be disappointed. The cost is 36,00 Euro per person and it includes all transportation and entrance fees.
