Nazi History & Creepy Bunkers Nov 07, 2014
The Dokumenation center in Obersalzberg provides the history and important documents from the time of Hitlers Nazi regime.

If your visiting the Eagles Nest in Berchtesgaden then a trip to the dokumentation center is easy to make. Its just around the corner from the main bus stop (which takes you up to the Eagles Nest) so worth a visit before catching the bus up to the mountains. Entry is only 3 Euros.

Most of the written documents in the center are in German but there are plenty of photos to accompany them. Some of these photos depict hangings and executions so it may not be appropriate for children to visit (although there was a young girl there about 8 years old who seemed to love it all, so).

The real gem of the place is the bunkers that the third reich used as headquarters. It was also used by workers in 1945 to hide from the air raids carried out by British on Obersalzberg. Its full of hallways, cells and caves. Very dark and creepy...which is always a good thing. Some of the hallways have been covered in messages from people who have visited over the years and looks very effective, and again, creepy.

There is a book in one of the bunkers that you can sign and write a message in, which in itself is an interesting read. Some of the messages are profound, some think that they are being funny by drawing swastikas and others seem to come from neo-nazi's.

Id definitely recommend visiting the center. If your visiting the Eagles Nest then it makes no sense not to.
