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.
