Carinhall
Carinhallwas one of the residences of Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring, a high-ranking Nazi dignitary and fellow traveler of the Führer, Adolf Hitler.
The property was so named in memory of the dignitary's first wife, the Swede Carin Göring, who died in 1931, and after the mythical location of Valhalla.It was located some sixty kilometers north-northeast of Berlin, in the middle of the vast Schorfheide forest near Groß Dölln (de), today a district of Templin in the northern state of Brandenburg, more precisely on a thin strip of land between two lakes: north of the Wuckersee (de) and south of the Großdöllner See (de).
The remains of Carin Göring were even repatriated there in 1934, to avoid vandalism of his grave in Sweden, and gave rise to a ceremony attended by Hitler to honor his fellow soldier. On the north bank of the Wuckersee, a special crypt was even built for her, in which Göring regularly went to meditate.
Carinhall became the destination of Göring's private collection, notably made up of the many works of Gothic and Renaissance art that the Nazis looted from private, very often Jewish, homes and museums throughout occupied Europe.
In the last days of the war, the residence was completely destroyed by the Nazis as they fled. Carin Göring's remains were then concealed in a makeshift grave dug in the forest.
The right-of-way can be visited today, and only the two imposing pillars at the entrance to the property remain.
