At this time the OKL (Luftwaffe High Command) staff, code named Kurfurst 1, was still based at Wildpart- Werder near Berlin, but steps had already been taken to establish an alternative command post in the so-called 'Alpine Redoubt' in the Bavarian and Austrian Alps. Known as Kurfurst 3, the new headquarters had been set up in a former lunatic a s y l u m at Wasserburg near Munich by the end of February 1945. Over the next two months, staff were gradually transferred from the Berlin area to Wasserburg but, by April 28, American troops were advancing on Munich and General Koller decided to m ov e pa rt of his staff to the Berchtesgaden complex. By May 3, the first components had moved to Thumersbach, a beautiful Alpine village on the shores of the Zell and See lake, Koller himself arrived there on May 6. Two days later he was join ed by th e n ew L uftwaffe commander in chief, Robert Ritter von Greim.
