Hitler built a House on top of a mountain on the border to Austria (called "Berghof") from which he could view the Untersberg (direct translation: Under-Mountain) all day. He believed the mountain and that which was inside the mountain to harbour mystical powers that would help him beat his enemies.
This is Hitler beside one of the telescopes pointing at the Untersberg:
Mystery hobbit man lived alongside humans
The remains of a little cousin of modern man nicknamed "the hobbit" that lived only 12,000 years ago have been unearthed by scientists, in a spectacular find that rewrites the story of human evolution.
The discovery on a remote Indonesian island shows that Homo sapiens shared the Earth with more primitive relatives soon before the dawn of recorded history, and suggests a tantalising explanation for the myths of elves, dwarves and "wild men of the woods" that are popular all over the world.
Some scientists even believe it possible that the creature, or something like it, could still survive today in the planet's most isolated and unexplored outposts.
"This has startling implications. It is fundamental to religious and scientific ideas of humanity that we are a unique species. This species shows us that for all but the very last few of the last seven million years, there has been more than one species of human living at the same time. There was virtually no time when we were the only species."
Hobbit-Like Human Ancestor Found in Asia
Homo floresiensis is an addition to the short list of other human species that lived at the same time as modern humans. I think people will be surprised to learn that not so long ago, we were not alone," said Brown.
Still, rumors, myths, and legends of tiny creatures have swirled around the isolated island for centuries. It's certainly possible that they interacted with modern humans, according to the researchers.

Come to think of it, I haven't seen as much dwarven imagery, much less statues, in other places I've lived in. They are all over the place in Salzburg. Garden gnomes don't count.
