Luxury hotel at Hitler’s Alpine retreat loses money

This isn’t really a shame.

The view is breathtaking and the Alpine retreat’s leading resident was none other than Adolf Hitler, yet tourists are ignoring a new, luxury hotel built on a Bavarian mountain, a newspaper reported Monday. The Intercontinental Hotel on the Obersalzberg mountainside near Berchtesgaden had an occupancy rate of only 53 per cent and lost 4 million euros (5.3 million dollars) last year, the Sueddeutsche Zeitung reported. The rooms cost 200 to 400 euros a night. Amid controversy about whether to commercially exploit the former Nazi site, the hotel opened in 2005, replacing a guesthouse for Nazi faithful who used to visit the dictator at his nearby holiday home. A modern museum just down the road depicts the Nazis’ war crimes. – from EarthTimes
