Nazi shrine found in Hitler's Berchtesgaden mountain lair

Berchtesgaden, Germany - German television has uncovered a Nazi shrine in a bunker in Adolf Hitler's Obersalzberg mountain lair near Berchtesgaden in the state of Bavaria. Prosecutors said Friday they were laying charges against the owner of the World War II bunker for allowing Nazi slogans and swastikas to be scrawled on its walls. According to a television report by national public broadcaster ARD, the bunker is advertised in the hotel located above and visitors pay an entry charge. The Nazis closed Berchtesgaden to the general public. A maze of bunkers was constructed on the Obersalzberg, and area evolved into a second power-centre after Berlin during the war years.
