Kehlsteinhaus and Obersalzberg

Cenotaph of time: Hitler's summer residence

The burner throat brick house, located 1834 m above sea level, was a birthday gift given to Adolf Hitler by the NSDAP, though he rarely visited it.

A bus will take you to a tunnel reaching 124 metres into the mountain, at the end of which you will arrive at a pompous, brass-cased elevator. Within a few seconds, it will take you 124 metres upwards to the inside of the house.

For many people, this trip does not only provide an overwhelming view of Berchtesgaden country, but also a chance to remember and come to terms with the abysmal depths of this inhuman dictatorship.

Nearby, there is a museum that effectively communicates this knowledge.
