Hans,
Did you mean to post a different link? I didn’t see any info at all on the Daimler page about the cars specifically used by Hitler, which is the topic of conversation here.
Of course, there is a vast amount of info on these cars on several other webpages, which can be located through internet searches.

In the mini series Band of Brothers the Paratroopers find in a cellar a trove of rare wine....its impiled of course that the former owner was Herman Goering......who are years would have the first choice of the most rare French and german wines...also they show an SS Officer in white uniform commit suicide...did either of these incidents occur?

"Con el problema del alojamiento y los vehículos ya solucionado, la siguiente prioridad era
el alcohol. En todos los sótanos había algo de vino, pero el mayor escondite de todos fue
descubierto por uno de los pocos abstemios que había en el batallón, el mayor Winters. El 6
de mayo, mientras exploraba por su cuenta, encontró el Club y Cuartel de Oficiales del
mariscal Hermann Goering. En una de las habitaciones encontró a un general alemán
muerto, vestido con su uniforme de gala reglamentario, un balazo que le había atravesado el
cráneo de oreja a oreja y la pistola aún en la mano. Era un general de división a quien
posteriormente se identificó como Kastner."

From the spanish edition of the book, it describes a big storage in a club that belonged to Goering and in the book the reference is not a SS Officer, is a german general called Kastner.

I am looking for info on the large table in the great room of the Berghof-the one in front of the picture window. I have all the photos from here, and messages posted. But I can't recall seeing anything about the manufacture. I love that table and thought of building one using the photos. There is a similar table but not as long at a Museum in Washington State USA that is used for archive work, I can't get them to part with it. Any comments on the Berghof table, make, model, or specs, would be greatly appreciated.

Could someone help identify the location of the photos here? Is this the Berghoff area and trail to Mooslahnerkopf? Photos from National Archives, EB collection album 7. The photo with Hitler walking with the officer to me doesn't look like the trail to Mooslanhnerkopf, but I'm probably wrong.
Other two look like the trail just below the Berghoff, please correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks...

The blond woman is Marion Schönneman, the black hair woman maybe Sofie Stork.
The officer is Rudolf Schmundt, the adjunt of AH.

A qualified guess about the last Picture is that it is most likely not Obersalzberg. The landscape and the trees has resemblances with the Eifel area and therefore FHQ Felsennest comes in mind. That exlcudes Eva Braun as the photographer 'cause she was never near that FHQ when that photo was taken spring 1940. Probably taken by Hoffmann or someone in his entourage and later ending up i Eva Braun's photoalbum.

Helly was right about Rudolf Schmundt. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudolf_Schmundt

Thanks for the replies. I am saving in a word document only for my study, all the photos and information I can gather online about Berchtesdagen history, before and after the 3rd Reich, as well as the history of the Obersalzberg. Finished going through this site here, all 425 pages-it took a while! Now starting on the EB file albums on the National Archives website. Running into several photos like the ones I posted here that have no id, and I'm not sure if they are Obersalzberg or not. Might have some more for you all to id. I really appreciate it.
My wife and I fell in love with Berchtesgaden on our 3 week stay there back in May of 2019, and plan to go back after they reopen the new Documentation Center next to the old Berghof site.

Obersalzberg, Hitler's vacation home since 1923, was expanded after 1933 to become the second seat of government next to Berlin. The Obersalzberg Documentation is a place of learning and remembrance designed and supervised by the Institute of Contemporary History Munich-Berlin on behalf of the Free State of Bavaria. Since 1999, it has offered the opportunity to learn about the history of Obersalzberg and the history of National Socialism at the historical site.

Currently, the Obersalzberg Documentation is closed for renovation. The previous exhibition building is being converted into an education center and the new permanent exhibition will be set up in the extension building.

The reopening is expected to take place in 2022. You can find more information on this page and on social media. There we will continue to offer you interesting information about Obersalzberg:

I have another photo that I need correct id for: From the EB collection National Archival album 11. Is this the Bormann farm, taken a little bit below the Berghof area?
I appreciate the help. Thanks
