VERY RARE ORIGINAL PRICE AND SERVICE INFORMATION OF THE NSDAP OWNED HOTEL

BERCHTESGADENER HOF

THAT WAS LOCATED AT THE FOOT OF WHAT WAS ADOLF HITLER'S MOUNTAIN, THE OBERSALZBERG

AND THAT THE NAZIS USED TO HOUSE OFFICIAL VISITORS OF THE BERGHOF

The Berchtesgadener Hof hotel had previously been the "Grand Hotel Auguste Victoria," popular with visiting royalty. The Nazis bought it in 1936, remodeled it and renamed it the Berchtesgadener Hof, and used it to house dignitaries visiting Adolf Hitler's Berghof, such as the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, and David Lloyd George. High-ranking Nazis such as Josef Goebbels, Heinrich Himmler, and Joachim von Ribbentrop also stayed here, as did visiting military officers such as Erwin Rommel. Eva Braun lived at the Berchtesgadener Hof when she first came to Berchtesgaden, before moving into the Berghof. Later, Obersalzberg functionaries such as Martin Bormann's brother Albert lived here, as did Hitler's sister Paula (incognito, as Paula Wolf). After the U.S. Army occupied the area in May 1945, the Berchtesgadener Hof was the scene of several high-ranking surrenders, including that of Field Marshal Albert Kesselring.
The U.S. Army took over the Berchtesgadener Hof in 1945, and it was one of the show-pieces of the Armed Forces Recreation Center until 1995. The rear balconies and sun terrace were justly famed for their view of the mountains. Sadly, when the U.S. Army left in late 1995, the famed hotel was closed and locked, as it remained for several years until it was torn down in 2006, to make way for a new "Haus der Berge" museum of the mountains.

BERCHTESGADENER HOF

THAT WAS LOCATED AT THE FOOT OF WHAT WAS ADOLF HITLER'S MOUNTAIN, THE OBERSALZBERG AND THAT THE NAZIS USED TO HOUSE OFFICIAL VISITORS OF THE BERGHOF

This unique item was taken from room #109 of the well known hotel in Berchtesgaden. It might have been taken as a souvenir by an American GI in May of 1945 but very well it could have been taken by some guest who stayed in the hotel before the collapse of theThird Reich. A single room was available for RM 12.00 and a double room cost RM 20.00 back then - but the price included heat(!), lights(!), shoe shine (one pair per guest) as well cleaning of clothes. Just like it is common in hotels today, one of these price and service information notifications (with original ink signature of the hotel manager!) hung at the wall in every hotel room. This one, its size is 4-1/2 x 8-3/8 inch, comes from room #109 and is unmessed with, meaning it looks just like a hotel guest would have seen it before 1945!
