Yes we could have spent hours here. One and a half houses were recommended but we could have easily spent two or more. Lots of information. Very well laid out and quite moving. Seeing the actual bunkers was also quite interesting. Highly recommend.

The Documentation Center Obersalzberg was fascinating. Lots to see on 3 floors of museum plus a bunker restoration, plus a movie theatre showing the history of the building of the Eagles Nest and surrounding "occupation" and "takeover" by the Nazis. It was all very informative....More
