Hotel Zum Turken WWII Bunkers, Berchtesgaden

4.7
#4 of 8 in Historic Sites in Berchtesgaden
Once seized by the Nazis and used as a bunker, Hotel Zum Turken WWII Bunkers, built in 1911, now serves as an upscale hotel. Although the guestrooms are modern, visitors can still descend a spiral staircase to explore the historic, 1943 underground hallways and tunnels where SS soldiers once hid out. (Many guests say it's a spooky experience.) With no tour guides available, you're on your own to explore; take a German/English dictionary if you can't read the local language.

  • Well hidden you have here an appointment with history. In an idyllic setting such a complex clog. "They" were good at it. No mass tourism but more than worth it.

  • This was not the largest exhibition I've ever seen on WWII memorabilia, but it probably was the most authentic. It was amazing seeing the bunkers, and it gave one a chill at the true horrors of that e...  more »
  • Cost 7 Euros for 2 adults and 2 kids to go in and see the bunkers, fascinating to explore. We were the only ones in there. Guy on reception was very helpful and gave us directions to the Berghof. Abso...  more »

  • Amazing hotel and a wonderful experience! Not like any other hotel i've ever stayed at. Simple life with the most spectacular view! The owner is a lovely person - follow her few and simple rules, and you will have the best time. Very authentic and mysterious atmosphere! NO wifi, NO stress, NO annoying persons! Just love and tranquility!
  • Peaceful place with extremely friendly staff. Thank You for most pleasant 2 day stay. We will go back to this hotel. Vielen dank!
  • The best place to see some of the old bunkers in the mountain. Much better than the Dokumentation Center / museum.
  • Stunning alpine hotel on the olbersalzberg Main entrance to under ground bunker system on mountain Stepping back in time to 1940s
  • We had a wonderful stay at this historic hotel. We had initially only reserved one of the smaller rooms, but decided to upgrade to one of the larger rooms in the original section of the hotel with a balcony overlooking Berchtesgaden. Unfortunately we brought rainy weather with us when we showed up, but still caught some beautiful views of the town below. The upgrade was still well worth it as it also gave us in room "facilities", which isn't always a given in older European hotels. This was one of my favorite hotels during our 3 week stay in Europe. The access to the bunker system underneath the hotel is an added bonus. Not often you get a chance to explore part of a WWII bunker system for a few Euro.... When we make it back to this part of Germany we'll be staying here again. Great experience!
