A very well-done center covering this worst part of the 20th century. Get the English audioguide, use your Berchtesgaden travel card for discount. Expect to spend 2 hours to fully engage Bunkers were under restoration, so not able to view. Sobering. Go outside, and wonder...More

We stopped here on a rainy day knowing the bunker system was closed but still wanting to check out the museum exhibits. If you are English speaking only (no German), spring for the audio guide for an extra few €s. There was much we didn’t...More

The bunkers were closed to guests. They do not accept credit cards for payment so be sure you have cash. The attendant did not give us our audio guides and was not very helpful. We had hoped to learn more about the history, but if...More

This is well worth your time, if for no other reason than to view the bunkers and tunnels. The rise of national socialism and the key figures are documented, but not glorified here. If you do not speak or read German you can rent an...More

Located in the former Gastehaus (guest house) of the Obersalzberg complex, the photos, documents and artifacts on display tell the story of life, lies, secrecy and death as carried out by the NSDAP during WWII. There is also access to parts of the bunker system,...More

I went to the centre to see the tunnels also but they were closed. It looks like they are modernising the entry to the tunnels or something. It was disappointing that this was not advertised very well if at all and people going to see...More

We did a day trip from Salzburg to Berchtesgaden (a short 30 min drive) and parked and spent some time at the Documentation Obersalzberg before going up to Eagle's Nest. Having visited similar museums in Nuremberg and Berlin, we were less interested in history but...More

When we visited it was snowing too heavily to get up to the Eagles Nest but we spent easily 2 hours in the Documentation Centre Museum. So much information about the development of the Third Reicht and the Socialisation of Germany.

The Documentation Obersalzberg is located a couple of miles east of the town of Berchtesgaden on highway 319. The bus stop up to the Eagles Nest is next to the Documentation Obersalzberg.
