Visiting Europe's Fascist Sites-- Part 4: Eagle's Nest and the Reichstag
Another of Hitler's shows was at his mountain-capping Eagle's Nest. It was his Alpine getaway south of Munich in Berchtesgaden where he softened his image and became a "regular guy." A stone tunnel leads to his elevator which takes you to the top.
