The Kehlsteinhaus, commonly called the "Eagle's Nest," was built on the Kehlstein Mountain high above Obersalzberg as present for Hitler on his fiftieth birthday. A winding mountain road leads to a tunnel entrance. The date 1938 appears above the tunnel entrance. A 406-foot tunnel leads to an elevator for the final ascent to the Kehlsteinhaus. Today, the Kehlsteinhaus (or Eagle's Nest) is a popular restaurant. The marble fireplace shown in this photograph is original, but souvenir hunters have chipped pieces off. Interior view.
