Does anyone have photos, film footage or reports on Eisenhower’s visit to the ‘Eagle’s Nest’ in September 1945?

I just revisited a Mark Felton video about AH's "secret girlfriend." It mentions that Geli Raubal had a room at the Berghof that was sealed up and untouched after her suicide. Where would that room be, or is it a misplaced reference to the Munich apartment?

Geli Raubal shot herself on 19 or 20 September 1931 in the Munich apartment.
And the stories I've heard on the untouched room were about Munich.

Are there known aerial photo's of the Gutshof area?

I am searching for the location of the bee house west of the Gutshof.

And for the old pathways around the Gutshof. All the aerial photo's I can find have the focus on the berghof, ss kazerne or the Antenberg region.

A photo like this viewtopic.php?f=44&t=28208&hilit=Tallbo ... #p1848835 but then a bit more to the west.

Yes, these are photos from the US National Archives (including that Bee House close-up). I believe they are all online. If you search the National Archives (NARA) website, photos section (Still Pictures Branch), search for Obersalzberg and the like, you should be able to find them.

Also, a book that would be indispensable in you map work would be - https://www.amazon.nl/Verwandlung-eines ... 212&sr=8-2

Not the Berghof, since the Berghof didn't exist when Geli died. Geli did have her own room in Haus Wachenfeld (upper story, I don't know what the layout was, or which room was hers), and this was supposedly preserved untouched after her death. It would have burned along with the rest of the wood structure when the SS set the Berghof on fire on 4 May 1945.
