The most interesting part was the historische of how the Obersalzberg developed in time. The part where they show the terror of the nazis, is not what we came for.

Plenty historical information about the area and Hitlers. The exhibition is simple but with good material. Plenty construction around and close exhibitions. The fee is accessible to most (3 euro).

A very busy touristic place but with typical German efficiency it works. Some queues to be expected and please factor this into your visit here. I would certainly allow an extra hour here. All works well and a must if going to the Eagles Nest....More

You can easily spend a couple of hours here learning about the rise of the Wehrmacht, Hitler’s rise to power, the creation of Obersalzburg barracks, Eagles Nest where he met with his inner circle and entertained Eva Braun. The history of the Holocaust defies description....More

If you are interested in the history of this area go here rather than to the Eagle's Nest. It is absolutely fascinating and gives a real insight into how the Nazi regime took over the area from the locals before the war. There is also...More

Are you interested in reading a lot and look at some old pictures but no real artifacts? Then this place is for you. Not my cup of tea

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.
