Hello,
.
Here several graves of others Berghof Visitors.
(Note: All pictures were taken from me while our trip around Bavaria).
.
All these graves are located in Munich.
.
First I visited the “Nordfriedhof“ :
Heinrich Hoffmann and Henriette v. Schirach/Hoffmann, Traudl Junge, Bernd Freytag von Loringhoven and Emil Maurice.
.
Then I visited the “Waldfriedhof“ : Emmy Göring and Leni Riefenstahl.
.
Regards, Alvin

Hello,
.
that's the 3rd and last contribution regarding graves, cemeteries and Berghof Visitors.
.
(Note: All pictures were taken from me while our trip around Bavaria).
.
Some Commemorative Plaques which are located around Berchtegaden.
.
1. Hans Richter:
While Hitler has been celebrated his 56th birthday in the Führerbunker, Hans Richter died in Berlin on April 20, 1945 in the murderous battle against Red Armee a senseless death.
.
2. Four brothers Hans, Franz, Anton and Sepp Kurz of the “Auerhaus" at Untersalzberg. All these young men died in World War II:
The lifes of Hans, Franz und Anton came to an end in the same year, 1943. Sepp Kurz died in 1950 as the result of a war injury.
Incredible sad.
.
3. The six young men of the "Schwabenlehen" died all while both World Wars:
Three Brothers, Johann (1914, age 24), Sebastian (1917, age 22), Kaspar (also 1917, age 19) in World War I
And the next generation of three brothers, Hans (1941, age 19), Sepp (1942, age 22) and Georg (1943, age 29) in World War II.
That's just an unbelievable Tragedy.
.
4. This Commemorative Plaque is installed for Soldiers which have not been buried in Berchtesgaden:
Unser Gedenken ehrt die Gefallenen beider Weltkriege. Weit weg von der geliebten Heimat Berchtesgaden liegen sie in fremdem Boden. Herr, lass sie in Frieden ruhen.

Our commemoration honors the fallen of both world wars. Far away from the beloved Berchtesgaden homeland they lie in foreign soil. Lord, let them rest in peace.
.
Reagrds, Alvin

Thankyou.

I did a search and found he had so I revised my post.
Never even heard of his death until now.

I know its a small point but everywhere I looked I saw he was born in 1944.
His dates on the headstone indicate differently?

They were a great couple which seem to get along splendidly despite the
difference of years (to my mind should not make difference) but since he was
with her since they say he was 20 its very interesting to read.

I would have liked to meet this man but I have a feeling he was very introvert
and only was comfortable around people of his choosing.

Yes, that's right, Annelie.
,
Sometimes it can be read that Mr. Kettner was born in 1944. Especially in international articles, websites etc.
But that is not correct. The data on the tombstone are an actuality and okay.
.
If you are interested to getting deeper in Mrs. Riefenstahl's life, I recommend you this documentary ( I have the VHS 8-) )

That is an amazing film.
The Berghof looked enormous while being built.
Actually how many square feet would it be?

I remember AKH has some really interesting films.
Found him some time ago.

Hello,
.
A few months ago I have 'discovered' the AHK videos. Regarding the topics Berghof and Obersalzberg (Berchtesgaden) I think these videos (see below) could be interesting.
Before you watch the movies I would like to give you two little advices. I have taken the movie - Material No. 602 - to illustrate the procedure.
.
Advice A
1. Please start the video on the preview (bottom left).
2. Then click with the right mouse button on/in the preview.
3. Select the option 'Copy video address'.
4. Open a new Tab in your Browser
5. Then paste the Link in the address-bar and confirm (Enter).
Now you can watch the movie in a scaled size and good quality.
.
I have attached a photo how the result should looks like.
.
Advice B
To translate the descriptions of the films, first mark the text. Now use the copy function (Strg + C) and then paste the clipboard into the Goggle translator (Strg + V). https://translate.google.com/
I hope I do not overdo it with my advices, but I just want to help. Maybe some people are not that familiar with IT technology.
.

Thanks a lot for your posting of that awesome footage 8-)

The archive of Karl Hoeffkes is an extraordinary source with extremely interessting material. Your contribution remembered me to check my notes in conjunction to that. The result is a listing of short movies around the Berghof and Obersalzberg which I've posted in addition.
.
Enjoy your Sunday and Regards,
Alvin

Excellent films in color of the Berghof area after the war, many views of which I was unfamiliar. Many thanks for sharing these!

Cheers,
