Tour to the Eagle's Nest (Kehlsteinhaus). Hitler´s mountain house in Bavarian Alps

Any war is a tragedy that carries destruction and death. Memorials related to wars should be preserved to constantly remind humanity of the mistakes of the past.

Tour to the Eagle's Nest (Kelsteinhaus). Hitler´s mountain house in the Bavarian Alps

A few kilometers west of Salzburg is located the natural pearl of Bavaria, the Berchtesgaden National Park. Five main highlights attract here tourists from all over the world. These are the salt mines where salt is still mined, the Koenigssee Lake with crystal clear water, the second-highest mountain in Germany Watzmann, the colorful resort town of Berchtesgaden, as well as the Eagle's Nest (Kehlsteinhaus), once Hitler´s mountain house.

The surroundings of Berchtesgaden attract both the beauty of nature and the fascinating history. Being an independent ecclesiastical principality, Berchtesgaden created significant competition for Salzburg in the production of salt. The Bavarian rulers of the Wittelsbach dynasty made the Berchtesgaden lands their health resort.

Adolf Hitler, having become Chancellor of Germany in 1933, wished to build a mountain residence for himself and his entourage near the town of Berchtesgaden, where they could relax with families and relatives, and also work in an informal setting. In 1936, the construction of the Berghof mountain estate was completed, and two years later, at an altitude of 1834 meters, almost 3000 workers built the Kelsteinhaus for receiving diplomats and summer day trips. After Austria joined the Third Reich (Anschluss), Hitler's official residence in Salzburg was the Klessheim Palace.

The Kelsteinhaus (later named the Eagle's Nest) is one of few buildings left in its original form since the end of the war. For those who are seriously interested in this topic and would like to see more places related to the era of the Third Reich, I have a special detailed program. Contact me!

In addition to historical facts, you will learn how Bavarians live today, enjoy the beautiful views of the Alps, mountain rivers, and lakes, drink Bavarian beer and taste national dishes. Depending on the available time and your interests, many additions can be made to the tour, which makes it attractive for guests of any age.

The duration of the tour depending on the program is from 4 to 8 hours. The opening and closing dates of the season depend on weather conditions. Usually, the Kelsteinhaus opens after the winter break in early May and closes on November 1. Opening hours are from 8:00 to 17:00.

For those who like active recreation, I offer a walking tour to Mount Kelstein in the Eagle's Nest, which will take a whole day. The road is simple, without cliffs climbing, the route distance is about 12 kilometers return. Exciting views, vivid impressions, and a lot of interesting information are waiting for you.
