World War II Site: Eagle's Nest (Kehlsteinhaus)

Short history of the Eagle's Nest

The Eagle's Nest in Germany becomes the 213th destination to be added to the Duckwyn Travel Passport. Located high in the mountains of Germany, the Eagle's Nest is a popular destination for tourists and people who love World War II history. Hitler, however, didn't love the location. His fear of heights, the opportunity for bad weather, and the thin mountain air led to his dislike (Wikipedia). He did end up going there on at least 14 occasions when he wanted to entertain and impress guest. The house survived an Allied bombing raid on 25 April 1945. It was captured by the Allies a few days later on the 4 May.

The best time to visit is during the warmer months when there isn't a risk of snow closing the road. There is a restaurant and beer garden located at the site.
