A luxury hotel near the site of Hitler’s “Eagle’s Nest” getaway had its grand opening. In ceremonies Friday at the new Intercontinental Resort Berchtesgaden, Bavarian Finance Minister Kurt Faltlhauser noted that it was “a place burdened by history.” The choice of the site had drawn criticism from Jewish groups. Berchtesgaden later was used by the U.S. military as a resort. The hotel has been open to guests since March.
