The extension building at the Obersalzberg will only be finished in Winter 2021/2022 and – at the end – will cost more than 30 Million Euros. Until then, the tunnel system of the Nazis can be visited in the Documentation Center Obersalzberg. As the Allied Forces destroyed the Nazi-Villas all around Obersalzberg at the end of World War II, it is recommended to visit the Documentation Center for Videos, photos and a historic map on display.
