According to Let’s Go Europe, “Hitler’s “Eagle’s Nest” was designed and built for Adolf Hilter’s 50th Birthday by his personal secretary and Head of the Nazi Party Chancellery Martin Bormann. The monument is called “Kehlsteinhaus” in German because of it was originally intended to be a “Teahouse” for the head of the Third Reich. This mountain-top hideaway played a prominent role as the main unit objective in HBO’s critically acclaimed mini-series.”
Eagles Nest is accessible by local charter and tourist must purchase tickets prior to visiting the historical site.
