Eagle's Nest on the Obersalzberg
The Kehlstein House (Eagle´s Nest) is located in the Berchtesgaden Alps, just a few kilometres south of Salzburg. It was one of the most elaborate building projects in the Third Reich. The Kehlstein House was used primarily for representations. Hitler himself rarely stayed here. Today, the Kehlstein House is run as a mountain restaurant and offers a fantastic panoramic view of the Berchtesgaden mountains and Salzburg.
An exhibition in the Kehlstein House is dedicated to the historical significance and transformation of the Kehlstein House and the Obersalzberg from the former "Führersperrgebiet" (Führer's Restricted Area) to a tourist magnet. A visit to the Obersalzberg Documentation Centre is a perfect way to gain a deeper understanding of the historical context.
The Kehlstein House is open from the beginning of May until the end of October, depending on the weather.
The fjord-like, emerald-green Königssee (King´s Lake) in the Berchtesgaden National Park is a real gem of nature. Be sure not to miss a trip by electric boat to the peninsula of St. Bartolomew with its baroque pilgrimage church.
