Hidden sites on Hitler's mountain with the South German Third Reich expert

This is a one-day tour of the Eagles Nest, Berchtesgaden and Obersalzberg area.

These are three separate areas and I will show you them in detail. The majority of visitors visit the Eagles Nest and the documentation center at the Obersalzberg and think they have seen it. They haven't.

We trace the route the US military took into this area.

As well as the obvious, such as the Eagles Nest, which is an engineering marvel with breathtaking views I will show you
The site of Hitler's House
Speer's House
The Bunker Complex that most visitors don't get to see
Where the actual site of Hitler's tea house was, which was not the Eagles Nest
The hidden coal bunker
Where Hitler finished writing Mein Kampf
The tucked out the way Second Reich's Chancellery
and much much more

I give a personalized detailed commentary on the History of Hitler's mountain. When the weather permits the views from the Eagles Nest are stunning.

This is a detailed tour for the WW2 history buff.

A Recent Review of this tour

Steve took my son and I on a day tour out of Munich to the Obersalzberg area. I drove our rented car following the route of the American forces as they made their way to Hitlers's Berghof, while Steve verbally piled on the history. Steve is a very personable and knowledgeable person. He directed us to many Nazi era sites ranging from military barracks, and sites of infamous Nazi luminaries homes, including the site of Hitler's Berghof. The tour was topped off by visiting the Eagle's Nest. Great tour.
