Ironically, Hitler suffered from vertigo and rarely took pleasure in the views.Due to the World War II bombings by the Royal Air Force, there is little evidence left of Hitler and the Nazi party's presence, however Eagle's Nest still stands.From mid May to October, you will have the option to take a bus ride up the mountain to see Eagle's Nest for yourself.
