History and Mountains
Eagle's Nest and Berchtesgaden

 

You are picked up at your Munich hotel and go East along the beautiful Bavarian Alps to the Eagle's Nest (Kehlsteinhaus in German), a relic of a regime long gone but never forgotten, and a curious step back in time.  A symbol of the power of the National Socialism regime, the Eagle’s Nest was presented to Adolf Hitler on his 50th birthday.  It remained unharmed during the war and is now preserved in its original state.  Since 1960 all admission revenue goes to charity.

The Eagles Nest can only be reached by a local bus ride followed by a trip through solid rock some 400 feet to the top of the mountain in a luxurious brass elevator.  The view from the top shows the breathtaking scenery of the Bavarian and Austrian mountains.
