I've had it for some time, and it took a long time find out what it was for.

No, you've got the floors right. Above the floor with AH's office and bedroom and EB's bedroom was a floor with a 2-room apartment (plus bath) for the Berghof housekeepers (in the front - they had the smaller balcony above AH's office balcony), plus 2 other staff/guest rooms with baths, and 3 other rooms that shared baths in the hall (at the back of the house).

Only about half of the area beneath the Great Room had basement rooms. These were in the front part, and included a boiler room, furnace room, ventilation machinery rooms, storage rooms, and passageways for piping.

Thanks b14ck,

These are great, thanks. I've never seen plans like this. Got any more insights into the Berghof. Thanks again for posting these.

So were the remains of the basement destroyed by the Bavarian government after the US hand off occurred?

The Berghof basement is still under there, although some portions have fallen in (there may have been some collapsing from the April 1945 bombing). The garage was destroyed by the Bavarian authorities following the hand-off from US control in October 1995.

I'm new to this site, but find your photo chart fascinating. I live in Cincinnati. How can I see a HiRes of this floor plan? Thank you for posting.

This has been covered before but if you look here:

you'll see some very disappointing photos I took under the Berghof ruins in the early 1980s.

Thank you.
Hi Johnnyrocket,

I LOVE your Berghof floor plans - I downloaded them about a year ago, please let me know if there is a new version available.
One little thing I noticed, the color photo of the Wintergarten in the "Berghof - 1st floor" picture you posted shows the room in its original pre-Berghof (Haus Wachenfeld) configuration. I haven't seen any color photos of the actual Berghof Wintergarten, only these b/w Hoffmann postcards:

Did you also put together a map of the Obersalzberg with pictures of all the buildings? I remember seeing it somewhere, but can't find it now.

Thanks,
Peter
