As symbol of power of the NS regime, decisions were made at the Eagle’s Nest. It still stands for the insanity of the regime and the world on the Obersalzberg, where plans for war and mass murder were formed.
The Kehlsteinhaus (known as the Eagle's Nest in English-speaking countries) is a Third Reich -era building erected atop the summit of the Kehlstein , a rocky outcrop that rises above the Obersalzberg near the town of Berchtesgaden . It was used exclusively by members of the Nazi Party for government and social meetings. It was visited on 14 documented instances by Adolf Hitler , who disliked the location due to his fear of heights , the risk of bad weather, and the thin mountain air.   Today it is open seasonally as a restaurant, beer garden, and tourist site.
