YouTube video "Houses tell history"

Obersalzberg above Berchtesgaden was Hitler's residence and a power center of the "Third Reich". In our YouTube video, wich is well worth seeing, we look for traces of six buildings and tell how the mountain has changed several times within two decades.

We look back at the history of the Dokumentation Obersalzberg and thus at the beginnings of tourism on the mountain. We show what remained of Adolf Hitler's Berghof and why he came here in the first place. We explain what this changed for the village of Obersalzberg using the examples of Arthur Eichengrün's Haus Mitterwurf, the Hotel zum Türken and Johann Brandner's photo kiosk. For the construction of the "Führersperrgebiet" and the bunkers, the Nazi regime needed thousands of workers - among them many forced laborers. Among other places, they lived in the Antenberg camp, of which only a few traces remain today.
