Two of my daily followers: John and Ivar have lately posted photos from the world of Mountains.
That gave me an opportunity to share with you some of my experiences from the Alps in 1999. We stayed mostly in Austria, but one day we took a trip to the southern Germany
From Berchtesgaden we drove up the mountainside to Berghof above the village and through tunnel and elevator reached the Kehlsteinhaus or may be better known as the Eagles Nest. The Kehlsteinhaus was an official 50th birthday present for Adolf Hitler. (nicknamed Eagle's Nest by a French diplomat). It is told that Hitler only visited the Kehlsteinhaus twice. He may have had Vertigo.
I felt myself some of the dizziness when I was at the summit, and after that I do not like to go on high areas with open air all around me.At the summityou have the fantastic view down to Berchtesgaden, but as you can experience at Besseggen Ridge it feels being a long way down and the slope is steep. From the same trip I also want to share with you the highest mountain in Austria; Grossglockner (3798 m) but as you see I felt much safer behind the fence at Keiser Franz Josef´s Høhe at altitude 2369m.
