A misty start turning into a warm sunny day. Full day today. In the morning we went by coach to Berchtesgarten to visit the infamous Eagles Nest. Contrary to popular belief nobody stayed there overnight as it was a Nazi conference and entertainment centre. Hitler only visited 14 times due to his claustrophobia and fear of heights and stayed further down at the Berghof. It was at this site we had to leave the coach and transfer to a specially adapted bus to travel up a mountain road to an upper car park where you walk down a 124m tunnel to a polished brass lift to take you up to the building. Afterwards we went to Konigsee for a return trip on the lake to St Bartholema. Then back to hotel.
