The location and ruins of Hitler's home in the Obersalzberg mountainside. He bought it in 1933 and would renovate it several times. He spent four months out of the year while he was in power in this home. Before the war began, leaders from countries across the world visited him including among others the leaders from Romania, Bulgaria, Italy, Great Britain, Austria and France.

From here he planned the annexation of Austria, Czechoslovakia and the planned military expansion into the rest of Europe.
