The Eagle's Nest (Kehlsteinhaus)

Kehlsteinhaus, 83471 Berchtesgaden, Germany

Short Hike

A Third Reich-era building erected atop the summit of the Kehlstein, a rocky outcrop that rises above the Obersalzberg mountainside retreat near the town of Berchtesgaden. It was used exclusively by members of the Nazi Party for government and social meetings. It was visited on 14 documented instances by Adolf Hitler, who disliked the location due to his fear of heights, the risk of bad weather, and the thin mountain air.
