Documentation Obersalzberg, Berchtesgaden

(4.3/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Learn more about the Obersalzberg mountainside retreat at Documentation Obersalzberg, which was erected on the foundation of a former Nazi guesthouse. Adolf Hitler regularly vacationed in this area beginning in 1928. The museum features more than 950 documents, photographs, audio clips, films, and maps, as well as a scale model of the area. Part of the formerly extensive bunker network remains accessible. Special exhibits rotate periodically. An audio guide is a huge help if you don't speak German.
