A historical viewpoint

At Kehlsteinhaus visitors can enjoy a stunning panoramic view of up to 200km. And getting there is an adventure of its own. First by public bus over the impressive 6km mountain pass road which was blasted into Kehlstein mountain in just 13 months. From the turning area a narrow asphalt path winds its way up to Kehlsteinhaus. Thanks to the tradition-steeped Kehlsteinlift it's possible to avoid that tiring ascent entirely. The lift takes the visitors up in just 41 seconds - covering 124 metres and opening directly into the lobby of Kehlsteinhaus. From here the Kehlstein summit cross is only 5 minutes away.
