The Kehlsteinhaus

Driving through the mountains, hiking up the alpine slopes .. that’s the best way, anytime, for me to chillout – they are the paths to my “happy” place. And then you sprinkle a bit of historical significance in that place – for example, a fort, ruins of a monastery or a temple, the alpine retreat of Adolf Hitler – and it can’t get any better!

That’s how it was, when I spent a weekend in the Berchtesgadener Land and visited the Kehlsteinhaus.
