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

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 museum provides historical information on the use of the mountainside area by the Nazis including of course Hitler. The exhibitions are very informative and poignant. Well worth a visit, especially before you visit the Eagles nest.

We had the distinct privilege of a tour guide, which helped immensely as we were short on time. My take on this center (and maybe only mine) was that it documented the past, but did not glorify it. It did portray German life as the...More

They'd started some construction around the parking lot, etc when we were there, later in the season. And for safety reasons had to close the bunker, which was one of the main things I was interested in seeing. The other info they have is great...More

Admission is 3€. Not much, but less received. We told there was some English. Hmmm, if the video counts then yes, otherwise no. Some ok photos but we felt it a waste of time unless you read German. Yes, audio available at extra fee. It...More

The center had a lot of construction going on, so we had to walk quite a way around to even get in. Once we were in it was very interesting and set up in an easy self-guided manner. The video that was running in a...More

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.
