“Exceptional museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

We recommend visiting here together with a visit to the Eagles Nest . This is an exceptional museum , presenting the history of why and how the NAZIS came to power , the establishment of Obersalzberg as it's second seat of government , the atrocities and the course of the WWII . The English audio guide was excellent but it is such a terrible part of recent history that the information and visuals couldn't fall to sadden and overwhelm as we went through the museum . We did nt watch the videos and moved more quickly through the latter parts of the museum but to our surprise found we had been in the museum over two hours . It was good to be able to sit outside (there is also a large cafe/restaurant next door) and contemplate the beautiful woods and mountains before catching the bus back to Berchtesgaden.

“Very Informative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

We visited this location after viewing the Eagles Nest, it was great. Make sure you do the bunker also, hard to understand how they made it way back in 1943.

“Good experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

Being associated to Germany's worst history it was not astonishing that masses of tourists are here on a daily basis, but the exhibition is excellent and should not be missed. To travel to the Eagle's Nest is not really worth it

“Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

One of the better museums to visit. Although there are parts that have had to be modernised/restored it's one of the few that still has some parts untouched. Informative and interesting.

“Don't miss if in the area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

This center provides accurate information relating to the location of Nazi hierarchy in Obersalzburg. Combine with a tour of the Eagles Nest
