„Eagle’s Nest“ (Kehlsteinhaus), Berchtesgaden
The Kehlsteinhaus on the summit of Obersalzberg mountain was a birthday present
to Adolf Hitler in 1938. Buildings works took only 2 years. The luxurious lodge was in
use by the national socialist elite for receptions of high ranking visitors. After World
War II the place became preserved as an architectural document of the Nazi era. The
victorious allied forces called it “Eagle’s Nest”.
