The Eagle’s Nest – The Legacy of World War 2
A very popular and well known place for a breath taking view that a place cannot be justified by pictures alone. You have to go, visit and witness the majestic view of The Eagle’s Nest (Kehlsteinhaus) in Obersalzberg in Berchtesgaden but the history behind this beautiful scenic view is dark and shocking. Eagle’s Nest used to be a home, retreat place, diplomatic house and a resting home for the late Hitler. This was a gift to Hitler on his 50th birthday from his political friends and diplomats. Eagle’s nest used to be a place to plan the killings and mass murders of thousands of people. It was one of the few properties that was left untouched during the horrific WWII. Today, The Eagle’s Nest (Kehlsteinhaus) in Obersalzberg in Berchtesgaden is one of the most visited places in the World. A very beautiful and well thought construction by Martin Bormann’s.

Eagle’s Nest is only open during the summer season (mid May through October) due to its high elevation. There will be special buses that will bring you to the top of the hill taking the Obersalzberg road. If approved, you will also have the opportunity to hike up to the hill. While on your way, you will find beautiful sceneries and smell the fragrance of trees and crisp cool air. Once you reach the top you will see a tunnel made of bricks which is going to the Brass Made Elevator with venetian style mirrors all over inside the elevator going up to the most top. Not only that you will enjoy the spectacular view, feel and smell the fresh air but there is also a restaurant that will serve you German’s best chilled beers, drinks, cakes and delicious food.
