The Platterhof Hotel, located just down the way from the Berghof, was purchased by the Party and rebuilt into a splendid hotel originally to provide a reasonably priced, comfortable stay for the common man. It never served this purpose, as Bormann did not want visitors in the Obersalzberg, feeling this would be a threat to Hitler's safety. The Platterhof, therefore, was mostly used to house dignitaries and high Party officials waiting to see Hitler. Although it was bombed at war's end with the Berghof, it did not sustain serious damage, and was repaired by the American Army and served as an R & R hotel for US officers and enlisted man up until the 1990's.

The Platterhof still contained most of its original furniture, some furniture from the Berghof, and even many original artworks coming from the Haus der Kunst located in nearby Munich. There was also an entrance near the hotel lobby to one of the still-intact underground concrete escape tunnels built by Bormann. In 1995, the area was returned to the Bavarian government, and unfortunately, the decision was made to tear-down the building, as the Bavarians feared that the Platterhof could become a site for "Hitler admirers". The entire site was destroyed and lost to history, although it is rumored that much of the remaining contents were looted by the contractors working there during the destruction of the building.

The tableware used at the Platterhof during the 3rd Recih period was embossed with the logo of a peasant woman standing in front of two mountains. Platterhof items are quite rare and are sought-after by 3rd Reich tableware collectors.

PLATTERHOF #46548C Tiny Cream Pitcher from "Gesthaus Schmidt"

This very tiny cream pitcher is probably not from the Platterhof but it came with all of the Platterhof items I am listing. Chances are Guesthaus Schmidt was one of the small guest houses located in the area and somehow this small cream pitcher got mixed up with the Platterhof type. At any rate it is a very tiny little item measuring about 1 inches high with a small ear-like handle and spout. The obverse edge is stamped "Gesthaus Schmidt".

Additionally it is marked on the bottom "1" and "Hoka".

Maybe not a Platterhof item but still very interesting and definitely coming from the same area in Berchtesgaden.
