Klessheim


Klessheim is a castle from the 1600s and is located just outside Salzburg. The proximity (about twenty kilometres) to Berghof made the castle suitable to use for official meetings and conferences. Hitler met with among others. Italian dictator Mussolini, Romanian dictator Antonescu and Hungarian leader Horthy in Klessheim.

Current status: Preserved (2008).

Address: Klessheim Walser-Weg, Salzburg.

Get there: Car.

My comment:

At the entrance to the castle yard, the sentry boxes are left with the so typical German eagle on the roof. In 2008, Klessheim is a big casino.
