He died in his bunker in Berlin on 30 april 1945.

For years it was the House subject of fight between supporters and opponents of demolition. Many neo-Nazis came to Braunau to join the House to be photographed. The Austrian authorities wanted of those ' pilgrims ' long.

The young Hitler spent his first year in the House. It stands empty for several years now. The last word is formally to the Parliament in Vienna, which must agree with intention.
