Kehlsteinhaus aka Eagle's Nest

The Kehlsteinhaus (known as the Eagle's Nest in English-speaking countries) is a Third Reich-era edifice erected atop the summit of the Kehlstein, a rocky outcrop that rises above the Obersalzberg near the town of Berchtesgaden. It was never the vacation home of Adolf Hitler but was used exclusively for government meetings and no one ever slept there. It was presented to Adolf Hitler on his 50th birthday. It had a completely electric appliance kitchen, which was unusual in 1937 but was never used to cook meals. Instead meals were prepared in town and taken to the kitchen on the mountain top and reheated. The floors were heated and the building had to have the heat running for at least two days in order for the temperature to be comfortable enough for visitors. Hitler only visited the building 14 times. Today it is open seasonally as a restaurant, beer garden, and tourist sight. wrote:
