Adolf Hitler gave Haus am Bogensee, the only Nazi residence that has not been demolished, as a gift to Goebbels during World War II.

But the authorities in Berlin are not sure what to do with the love cushion that is rumored, after attempts to sell it were unsuccessful, while some experts argue that it should be demolished.

The impressive lakeside villa in the German capital, described as an "idyllic solitude", was completed in 1939.

The 70-room complex, nine miles north of the city limits of Berlin, is where Goebbels retired to write many of his vociferous anti-Semitic speeches.

It is also where he gave himself to a series of affairs with German stars that were brought by Goebbels to replace the Jewish actresses in the Babelsberg studio, where he produced his propaganda films.

The authorities are determining if the house, which has the remains of an underground bunker, a cinema and an elaborate and intact banquet hall, could be renovated to make it look more attractive to potential buyers or demolish to make way for something else.

Maintenance costs are around 230,000 EUR (204,700 GBP) each year, according to local media.

It is reported that BIM Berlin Real Estate Management GmbH (BIM) wants to renovate the villa to make it more attractive for leasing.

The company plans to spend two million euros (1.8 million pounds sterling) to modernize the complex, update security features, adapt to external doors and resolve the roof spill, according to reports.

However, real estate expert Sven Heinemann of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) suggested that the property should be demolished.

WHO WAS THE MINISTER OF PROPAGANDA NAZI JOSEPH GOEBBELS?

Joseph Goebbels was one of the most important and influential people in Nazi Germany.

Hitler put him in charge of the party's propaganda machine in 1929 and played a key role in the implementation of the dictator's agenda.

His flaccid and acute tongue earned him the nickname of some as the "Dwarf Poison".

He organized attacks against the Jews, excluded them from the world of the arts and the media, censored the news and supported the Nazi propaganda films.

When the Second World War turned in favor of the Allies, it increased its propaganda to convince the German people of the idea of ​​"total war" and mobilization.

Goebbels killed himself and his wife, and their six biological children with cyanide capsules the day after Hitler committed suicide in 1945.

He told the newspaper & # 39; Bild & # 39 ;: & # 39; The 20-year dream must end. Bogensee only has a future without the Goebbels country house. I'm surprised it was not destroyed after the war. "

The village and training camps of the German Free Youth (FDJ) are under protection and there is a housing complex nearby.

On May 1, 1945, Joseph Goebbels arranged for the SS dentist, Helmut Kunz, to inject his six children with morphine so that, when they were unconscious, they would crush a cyanide capsule in their mouths.

Around eight-thirty in the afternoon, Goebbels and his wife Magda left the bunker and walked to the chancellery garden, where they committed suicide.

The 42-acre property and land, owned by the city government, has been put up for sale twice since the fall of the Berlin Wall, but it was not sold.

The aforementioned building, which has its own large fishing lake, was used as a school for the youth movement of the East German Communist Party after the war.

The private villa used by Goebbels became a kindergarten after the war ended, but since 1990 it has been abandoned

The site's carpenter in the 1960s, Werner Binder, 76, said the place was heavily sheltered at the time, but added: "But once inside it was like being in a holiday camp."

Goebbels and his family lived in the house in the latter stages of the war, after Hitler had put an end to the affairs of the propaganda minister, so that they could be closer to him.

Goebbels felt that the estate was a safe place for them, as it was outside the main city, and boasted an underground bunker, which remains partially.

The house also had a cinema and a banquet room completely intact.

The elaborate room still has oak paneled ceilings, French windows and open fireplaces that were installed before Goebbels moved out at the beginning of the war.

The farm is home to a large fishing lake. Goebbels described the quiet area as a place of "idyllic solitude"
