Secrets of the Third Reich: EPISODE 5

Nazi Treasure Hoard

The mountains of southern Germany hold one of the 'Secrets of the Third Reich,' and perhaps millions in lost Nazi treasure. It was here, at the tail end of World War II, that Heinrich Himmler planned an Alpine Fortress for a hardcore group of Hitler's elite army. The plan never happened, but what about the hundreds of millions of dollars in government and private funds that made their way to the Alps from Berlin? We examine the myth of "Alpenfestung," which has fascinated historians and treasure hunters alike for many decades.
