Berchtesgadener Area Today: Kehlstein Road

Postby *NL* » 27 Mar 2009 15:13

The road leaving from the Obersalzberg to the Kehlstein house (Eagle's Nest) is not open for public transport.
The road is to narrow for that, and therefore only accessable by bus. Each half hour 5 busses leave from and to the Kehlstein. These busses can only pass eachother at one point. The busses coming down give way to the ones climbing up the road. At the busstop on top, you need to make a reservation for your return trip, a time set by you will be stamped on your ticked to ensure you of a seat. But you can also walk back, there is a trail leading all the way down, but due maintance it might be closed as i found out. It is not allowed to walk the bus road, signs tell you so, and for very good reason. The busses drive fast, and you could get hurt or struck in one of those narrow tunnels. Anyhow since i have been on the Kehlstein 5 times already, i knew the road, and knew where to be carefull. Since the surrounding area is very quiet you will hear the busses comming in advance and make a pause along side the rail, or on the road side. Hope you will enjoy the images.

Kehlstein road. One of the tunnels that might not be safe to walk through, when 5 busses come rolling through. I waited untill they had come by.
