The Kehlsteinhaus (Eagle's Nest) is a Third Reich-era building erected atop the summit of the Kehlstein, a rocky outcrop that rises 1,834 m (6,017 ft) above the Obersalzberg near the town of Berchtesgaden. It was used exclusively by members of the Nazi Party for government and social meetings. It was visited on 14 documented instances by Adolf Hitler, who disliked the location due to his fear of heights, the risk of bad weather, and the thin mountain air. Today it is open seasonally as a restaurant, beer garden, and tourist site.
