Zum Türken, Berchtesgaden

(4.7/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Once seized by the Nazis and used as a bunker, Zum Türken, 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. Take a look at our Berchtesgaden trip generator to schedule your visit to Zum Türken and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Here opens up a world. as it is difficult to imagine a world that describes how the Nazi regime envisioned being able to control the world from somewhere under the ground. Don't forget warm clothes. That is very humid.

  • This unassuming hotel "to the Turks" is family managed and had a very sad story. Precisely for this reason, I would rather visit these bunkers as a tour guide with meinenTouristen. Here you can feel the true story, the humiliations of the Hitler rule against its own people and the madness with which the Hitler leadership still wanted to save the system 1944-45. A friendly genuine Bavarian welcome and reasonable prices round off the experience. Visit to the bunkers in any weather: In summer, in winter you can warm up well a willkommenene cooling, the temperature is 12 ° C. Thanks to the operator

  • These bunkers on private property is recommended to visit. All negative points which can be read in these reviews are absolutely to forgive, because this plant is still preserved as it was built in the 40erJahren and, as it is to meet today's requirements, can be therefore no attraction. (...und also not must!) Bottom line: rather in the original condition leave it
