I had read about this place but couldn't quite figure out how to get here. When we missed the bus to the main station, we came across it on our walk back. The WWII bunkers are absolutely fascinating! It's self explanatory with signs and words on the walls, fairly sufficient for a self guided walk. As I walked down the... More

Very interesting trip down the bunker. Standing by Hitlers personal bunker was a strange feeling. Loads of places to explore, machine gun posts, prison cells and even a hole in the wall by a bazooka, great historic buildings. The lady at the ticket office is a great character and made the trip even better. Thanks

Stayed at the Turken and also explored the bunkers. I would recommend the hotel to everyone. It's an incredible alpine hotel. There are no TVs in the rooms and there is no wifi but I feel that's part of the charm. Family run by good people. The Bunkers are an added bonus and cool to check out.

The tour itself is pretty empty of people but it is truly amazing. The bunkers at the observation center are closed for renovations so this is it. For 3.5 euros you get unlimited access to the bunkers. They are very well preserved for being 70 years old and under ground. It was amazing how much history is down there from... More

This was a significant experience as an one interested in WW2 history. The cost was 3.5 euro (if i remember correctly) to access the bunker and I believe the lady who ran the desk was there when the hotel was returned to her family after the war. There's plenty of stairs, and some standing water, and it is very well... More

Worth a visit. A bit dank and wet. Part of a series of tunnels and bunkers build by the third reich for hitler. You can see where they ended as the war came to an end. Prison cells etc. Machine gun slits still visible and bullet holes in the tiles!

We visited the WW2 bunkers and we did not realize that the bunkers were actually used until we went down in them. It was great to see how the bunkers were used and created. We plan on visiting the bunkers again this year...

In the morning we first went to the Kehlsteinhaus and were amazed by the advanced building skills of the Nazis, yet all the tourists kind of destroyed the vibe. But in the bunkers, it all became much more real. Definitely worth a visit!

Under the hotel are the remainders of the bunkers and tunnels that connected the Berghof with the houses of Göring and Bormann and where the SS-soldiers stayed during air raids.

We arrived at the end of the rainy afternoon. There is an old lady in the entrance selling tickets - it says it is a daughter of the original owner. The entry is through a revolving cage door -scary by itself, Then descent into weak light of original tunnels, prison cells, walls and ceilings slowly dripping water, chilling experience indeed....
