Auntie Lockett: Trip to Eagle's Nest

En route to Salzburg, we stopped over at Hitler's Tea House (a.k.a. the Eagles Nest), which was built for Hitler as a 50th birthday present. After a breathtaking drive up 4 mile road, which runs along the edge of the cliff, we walked through a marble-lined tunnel 406 ft long into the heart of the mountain. We then boarded the original brass-lined elevator for a ride up through the heart of the Kehlstein mountain another 406 ft straight into the Eagle's Nest, which is perched high in the Austrian Alps (6017 ft. ).
