Villa Kehlsteinhaus Near Berchtesgaden– Eagle's Nest for the Fuhrer

Villa Kehlsteinhaus (which means Eagle's Nest) is one of the attractions of the Bavarian Obersalzberg that is in the outskirts of Berchtesgaden. This mountain residence has a rather grim reputation. Adolf Hitler gave it to Martin Bormann as a present on his 50th birthday. By that time, Hitler already had Berghof residence in Berchtesgaden, which his personal architect Albert Speer built for him. The Eagle's Nest, located at an altitude of 1834m, was meant to be Fuehrer’s tea house, his mountain cottage. Soon after Hitler's anniversary celebration, the World War II began and as a result, Fuhrer was at his mountain residence only a few times.

After the war, the villa Eagle's Nest was occupied by the US military command. Later, when it was handed over to the Bavarian authorities, it was decided to demolish the building, but then the decision was changed. And the building is still preserved. From April to October there are guided tours there. The observation deck of the Eagle's Nest offers fantastic views of the surrounding area. In addition, the technical scope of the building and its accesses are striking. First, visitors enter a 124m-long tunnel and then the lift, which will raise them to a height of more than 100-meters in 41 seconds. The former tea house building is a restaurant.
