VISITOR'S GUIDE TO THE BERGHOF

EXPERIENCE HISTORY

What happened here changed history.

The Berghof was Adolf Hitler's home and headquarters in in the Obersalzberg of the Bavarian Alps near Berchtesgaden, Bavaria, Germany.

Hitler's physical home was destroyed by British aerial bombs in late 1945, and his tea house was destroyed by the Bavarian government after the war.

But the Kehlsteinhaus (a place used for government meetings) remained undamaged.

Today there are many opportunities for travelers and tourists to visit this piece of history, to look over the Alps, and see what the Fuhrer saw as he contemplated his plans for Germany.

THE EAGLE'S NEST - KEHLSTEINHAUS

Contrary to many sources this is not the Berghof.

Hitler spent little time in this amazing place

but it certainly has great views.

Amazing gold elevator.

Tunnel to elevator.

Kehlsteinhaus (known as the Eagle's Nest) was built near the summit of Kehlstein, a rocky outcrop that rises above the Obersalzberg near the town of Berchtesgaden.

Above it is the Hoher Goll.

The Eagle's Nest is a building perched on sheer rock wall, reached by the Kehlstein road and up a luxurious brass elevator.

Today it is open seasonally as a restaurant, beer garden, and tourist site.

Kehlsteinhaus is generally open from the second or third week of May until the middle of October.
