Excellent exhibit showing how Obersalzburg fits into the Nazi/Hitler story. It pulls no punches in explaining how Hitler dominated the German people and was responsible for killing over 20 million people. The video showing interviews with Obersalzburg residents who saw Hitler as a neighbor and...More

Having visited the Documentation centre in Munich I found this small and disappointing.Not the least because the text was only in German.

The summary of Nazi history is interesting and informative, and an audio guide is essential if you don't speak German. I found the smaller upstairs section the most interesting (only 4 or so display boards) which contained information and old photos / artefacts pertaining to...More

Overall the center is smaller than I expected. If you do not read German, only enter if there are audio guides available. They had run out of English audio guides during our visit. At the entrance we were told there were English subtitles, but that...More

Later generations continually ask how the German people were so willing to follow Hitler and the Nazis. TV and movies depict the rulers of Germany as one dimensional Satan-like figures that nobody in their right mind would put up with. The Documentation Center in Berchtesgaden...More

The Documentation museum is located in the car park area when visiting the Eagles Nest. It gives a great history of the Nazi era and in particular at Obersalzberg. The auditory guides are a must if you don't speak German

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.
