Hotel Zum Turken WWII Bunkers, Berchtesgaden
(4.7/5 based on 100 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Who is on the Obersalzberg and is a little historically interested, have to look at the bunkers beneath the hotel to the Turks. At the entrance there are to buy much info material, the bunker complex is relatively large. A little more modern treatment would do good but the system, everything seems to have stopped a little.

  • Very interesting trip down the bunker. Standing by Hitlers personal bunker was a strange feeling. Loads of places to explore, machine gun posts, prison cells and even a hole in the wall by a bazooka, ...  more »
