Well, I didn't do it from the driveway side or with GPS, but I did do this one time with a surveyor's tape measure, using measurable points from copies of the original blueprints. The location of the staircase is now buried under a lot of rubble and fill, and of course, the bottom part is completely buried like the driveway itself (except for that one small part that can be seen today).

I suppose it might be revealing to drive a metal rod down into this fill at various places, and see if you strike anything solid that might be a step. It would take several "sample points" because there are likely a lot of rocks down there too.

One time I saw a photo of the destruction of the ruins, shortly before the front of the house was blown up, that made it look like the steps had been taken up. I wish I could remember where I saw this photo ... maybe it was on Harry von Gebhardt's page.

Speaking of Harry von Gebhardt's page, last time I looked it was no longer.

Now this, sir, is a box full of treasures. I've been going through it for two days now and came across some things I never knew. Like e.g. that Hans Hermann Junge was an avid and excellent bowler and a member of a bowling club at the Platterhof, who won the challenge cup three times in a row... And the trophy then appeared in Traudl Junge's estate. I love it!

Spent hours and hours as Harry von Gebhardt and his treasure of photos
moved around and I kept following and each time new and different photos.

Think Mr. Gebhardt should be made honorary member here just from the reason
of how valuable and his sharing of the photos are. He could have kept them
private.

Wow, this is a big deal! Zum Turken up for sale. I read the real estate description but I didn't see any mention regarding the underground bunkers. Wonder what would become of that?

Boy - don't those photos bring back some memories? :)

My favorite thing was always the painting of the Farmer, just inside the entry. :D

Herr Bormann certainly had a primo view of the Turken, didn't he? :o
