When my colleague Peter Witte and I wrote "Himmler's Diary 1945" we quoted many Linge diary entries for the meetings of Hitler with Himmler in 1945.

The source for Linge's diary is IfZ Munich. MA 147. We did not quote any entries where Himmler was not present. But like the one below, it will be a daily account.
In the UK, the Imperial War Museum has Linge's diary for Hitler's meetings, 11 August-30 Dec 1943.
The reference is AL 1488/3.
I have not seen the Munich copy, but the IWM copy is handwritten in a large bound notebook.

The time and date of each call is logged – along with the caller’s name, the number and town they called, and how long the call lasted. It was removed from the Berghof right after the war ended. Several names are recognizable, such as “Wolf” calling Linz, Munich, Berlin and so on from room 334 (“diener des fuhrers”, or “servant of the Führer” room).
This would have been Hitler’s secretary, Johanna Wolf, calling on Hitler’s behalf. Other callers of note include Obersturmbannführer Bernhard Frank (SS Commander of the Obersalzberg complex) – and Eva Braun’s close friend Herta Schneider. Many calls made by the Head of the SS Tunnelling Company, Dr Peter Preidt, are also present, along with Hitler’s stenographer, Heinrich Heim.
I believe one day it would make an interesting research and book project for someone, as you could in theory map the events of the war around when the calls were made, and to whom.
There are 262 pages in total, too many to add here. But here are a few.
