Reviews about Eagle's Nest

5/5
Reviewed on Jun 6, 2018

Located in the Alps near Bechtesgaden, Bavaria, southern Germany, Hawk's Nest was built by Martin Baumann in 1938 at an altitude of 1884 meters as a villa for Hitler's 50th birthday celebration. Hitler used it as a treat for important guests. In 1945, the Allies bombed the Eagle Nest, but it was not damaged. Today, "Eagle Nest" has become an important tourist destination. Hawk's nest is built on the top of the hill. It needs to take the scenic bus, through the marble cave, and transfer to the golden elevator. Hawk's nest has now been transformed into a restaurant. The red marble fireplace Mussolini gave Hitler is still intact. It has a small view of the hills and overlooks Bechtesgaden and the surrounding countryside from the top of the hill.

On the way to Hawk's Nest, we met a very touching thing. When six of us bought tickets and were ready to take the tourist bus to the mountain, the car with more than 40 seats on board was almost full. Only the last two rows were scattered with a few seats. While six of us were wondering where to sit, all of a sudden, 89 of us in the trunk were wearing camouflage uniforms and Dutch flag emblems. Zhang's young soldiers, Qi Brushu's, all stood up. Under the command of an officer, they left their seats and offered their seats to our six old Chinese silver-haired men. At that time, we were really surprised. At first, we wondered if it was because there were so many people in the car that they wanted to get off and choose another vehicle. Unexpectedly, they wanted to give us good seats. When all six of us sat down, they were in the officer's seat. Under the command, we were all pushed back to the last two platoons. Then we suddenly realized that we were very touched and even thanked. Our former Chinese veterans paid more tribute to these foreign soldiers. When we expressed our gratitude to the commanding officer, we told him that several of us were Chinese soldiers when we were young, and also served as soldiers. Knowing that the sense of responsibility and mission of soldiers all over the world are the same. In order to show our respect, I hope to take pictures with these young soldiers. With the commander's delighted consent, these young sunny and bright-smiling fighters were so fixed in our group photos that they will remain in our hearts forever. We are proud of the soldiers all over the world. Afterwards, we learned that these Dutch soldiers should come from NATO troops and go to the mountains for military training.
