Happy Days at Obersalzberg - by Manuel Kreitmeier

Book tickets

Between coffee klatch and mountain idyll: Adolf Hitler and his lover Eva Braun spend a few more or less happy days on the Obersalzberg in 1944. Here at an altitude of 1000 meters - between meadows and lakes - Germany still looks like a vacation postcard. Also present at the summer retreat are the physician Doctor Morell, who regularly supplies the Führer with drugs, and architect Albert Speer - Hitler's intimate and Eva's potential lover. In the face of the downfall of the Third Reich, Hitler's court plays normality for a few days, cultivating daily routines and indulging in ever new power fantasies about how to avert disaster.

Manuel Kreitmeier's dark comedy shows us Germany's dictator and his entourage up close. The astonishing thing: The petty bourgeois rituals of Hitler's private life grotesquely reflect the megalomaniacal and deadly mechanics of the Third Reich itself. Happy days or doom?
