Germany - Eagle's Nest

The Kehlsteinhaus or so-called Eagle’s Nest was built as a 50th birthday present for Adolf Hitler from the political party and was considered to serve as a teahouse for diplomats.

The building was commissioned by Martin Borman and is situated in the mountains above Berchtesgaden on a ridge at the top of the Kehlstein mountain (1,834 m). The best architects, engineers and workers from across the country were involved into the project. The construction works proceeded over a 13 months period.
The main challenge was the road - blasted out of rocks and with unique construction design.
