The Kehlsteinhaus - Eagle's Nest

The Obersalzberg from Berchtesgaden, the Eagle's Nest is near the top on the left.
The tunnel entrance.
The tunnel with the Eagle's Nest above. The elevator is at the end of the tunnel directly below the building and ascended 124m up through the mountain.

The view down to Berchtesgaden.

Two mountain views from the top.

View from the monument.

After the war the mayor of Berchtesgaden spared the Eagle's Nest as a reminder of the atrocities inflicted by the Nazi regime and Hitler and as a memorial to the labourers who lost their lives constructing the road up the Obersalzberg.
