What you'll do

Beginning with a driving tour taking us up to the Obersalzberg mountainside with detailed historical commentary throughout.

My accreditation from the German Institute for Contemporary History means I'm authorised to provide an in-depth guided tour of the Documentation Centre, including the opportunity to explore some of the original bunkers that made up the extensive bunker system below the National Socialist complex on the Obersalzberg.

We'd also include a visit on foot into the woods to the lesser known ruins of Hitler's Berghof home, including the opportunity to experience the panoramic views that were once on offer from his very house. We could also incorporate further exploration of the more hidden secret areas (if desired).

An added highlight during the summer months would be a visit to the famous Eagle's Nest perched atop the Kehlstein mountain at 6, 017ft. I would explain in detail the fascinating history of Hitler's former teahouse and we would explore the building paying particular attention to the original features that still remain, including the huge marble fireplace and the famous brass elevator. You would also have your own free time to enjoy the Eagle's Nest.

Host on Airbnb since 2019
  • Identity verified
Originally from the south of England, I am now based in Berchtesgaden, Germany where I provide WWII focused historical tours. I am certified as a specialized guide for Third Reich themed tours by the Munich-Berlin Institute for Contemporary History.

My accreditation also gives me an unique authorisation to conduct tours of the Obersalzberg WWII Historical Centre and all of its exhibits, including the underground bunkers.

A passion for history and a thirst for further knowledge has resulted in years of private research; attending seminars from renowned historians, delving into archives, and building a collection of rare photographs, literature, and artefacts.

Numerous meetings with eye witnesses to hear first hand accounts of their experiences during the regime has given me an assortment of revealing recollections and anecdotes.
