A Gay Romp with Mark and Vicki at Berchtesgaden

"Germany was having trouble
What a sad, sad story
Needed a new leader to restore
Its former glory
Where, oh, where was he?
Where could that man be?
We looked around and then we found
The man for you and me
And now it's...
Springtime for Hitler and Germany
Deutschland is happy and gay!
We're marching to a faster pace
Look out, here comes the master race!
Springtime for Hitler and Germany
Rhineland's a fine land once more!
Springtime for Hitler and Germany
Watch out, Europe
We're going on tour!"

from "Springtime for Hitler: A Gay Romp with Adolf and Eva at Berchtesgaden," The Producers
Kehlsteinhaus, the Eagles Nest; Hitlers home, the
Berghof, was on the mountainside below;
Kehlsteinhaus was used only for state visits, and
only a few of those prior to the war; Hitler was
there only 14 times

The original brass elevator and much of the place (what
couldn't be carried off by looters) is intact

View from Kehlsteinhaus, Untersberg, Salzburg, etc.

Salzburg Fortress in the center; I promise this is the last
shot of it

Official sign; all the Nazi stuff has been removed

"Heinz, why don't you let the Fuehrer use
your binculars?" from the photo gallery

Eva's room, so-called sometimes

The conference room, now, of course, a restaurant

View from above

Us, squinting into the Bavarian sun, but still humming
"Germany was having trouble..." (the day's ear-worm)
