Meaning of the name[edit]

"Berg" is mountain, but does "Hof" refer to a court or merely a farm? Hexmaster (talk) 03:47, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Likely both. Gwen Gale (talk) 03:51, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
I came here with the same question. I think someone who knows for sure should add it to the lead. 218.25.32.210 (talk) 06:18, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

Berghof Details[edit]

For all those interested in details regarding Berghof (also known as Obersalzberg) I highly recommend the book Inside the Third Reich by Albert Speer. Speer was Hitler's architect and spent a great deal of time at Obersalzberg (his usage). He writes about its structure and environs as well as the "improvements" by Borman. The book is a fascinating insight to the inner workings and power struggles of the Third Reich. I particularly see current implications that parallel what went on inside this terrible part of our surprisingly recent history. 45acppistolero (talk) 07:45, 16 July 2010 (UTC)45acppistolero

residence[edit]

You mention that it was visited often by Hitler, yet when I visited there, I was told by the US Army historian that Hitler only visited a few times?Punkinsparker (talk) 14:03, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

You were most likely at the nearby Kehlsteinhaus, not the Berghof (since there is no Berghof anymore), the two are often muddled. He indeed only went up to the Kehlsteinhaus a few times (likely less than a dozen, anyway). He spent long stretches of time in the 1920s, 30s and 40s at the Berghof, which he thought of as his home/residence. Gwen Gale (talk) 14:07, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

Map error[edit]

The map showing Hitler's hideouts mistakenly labels the so-called Wolfsschanze ("Wolf's Lair") complex in East Prussia as being at (or near) "Kętrzyn." At the time that Hitler and his minions were headquartered there, the nearby town was the German Rastenburg. It wasn't renamed to the Polish Kętrzyn until 1950, five years after the defeat of Nazi Germany and the transfer of southern East Prussia to Poland. Sca (talk) 14:36, 23 February 2014 (UTC)
