Discover the Eagles Nest and Documentation Center


Many make there way up to the famous Eagles Nest and miss out on the lower section of the mountain Obersalzberg where many important political decisions have been made, and there are still remnants to see from that World War II time period. On this private tour, those history enthusiasts will discover the History of Hitler and how he came to the Obersalzberg. We will explore the transformation of the mountain into the second seat of government "Fuehrersperrgebiet" ( the "Fuehrer' s " off-limits area) whilst explaining other high Nazi officials who had homes on the mountainside as well as other buildings. Furthermore, we will visit the Third Reich museum (Dokumentation Obersalzberg) which I am authorized to do tours of and explore a part of the extensive bunker system.
Weather permitting spectacular views.

Itinerary

We will begin with a driving tour of the Obersalzberg mountain with stops for photo's or a better look at ruins if desired. Just a short walk into the woods takes us to the remains of Hitlers Berghof home, where we can enjoy the view he had (weather permitting), and share a few stories I have heard from the locals of small unimportant events that occured on the mountain during Hitlers time.
Our next stop will be the documentation center where I'm authorized to give a detailed tour, as I have been accredited by the German Institute for Contemporary History. Connected to the documentation center is a part of the extensive Bunker system below the Obersalzberg. We can visit another part of the bunker system if accessible.
It is possible to visit the spectacular Eagles Nest between May and October.
Throughout the tour I give a detailed historical commentary and use period photos to make everything a little bit more real.
