EAGLE’S NEST – The so – called “Eagle’s Nest” (Kehlsteinhaus), perched high up on the Kehlstein Mountain- contrary to what many people think – was not Hitler’s home on the Obersalzberg.

His huge Villa – “The Berghof” – was lower down the mountain.

Hitler rarely visited the Kehlsteinhaus (Eagle’s Nest). Eva Braun and top Nazis, along with important guests, frequently visited the Eagle’s Nest

Therefore, thousands of tourists, who visit this area, every year, miss out on a very important opportunity, to view the location of Hitler’s house – “The Berghof” and so many crucial Third Reich locations, dotted all around it
