Gran Hotel Viena
Ghost Hunters International
Gran Hotel Viena (Ghost Hunters International) - The Ghost Hunters International team makes its way to
Argentina to visit the historic Gran Hotel Viena. The hotel is in
disrepair now, but was once rumored to be a compound for Nazi war
criminals who had fled Germany. Most significantly, there are conspiracy
theories claiming that Adolph Hitler did not, as is popularly believed,
commit suicide in a Berlin bunker, but rather fled to Argentina, and to
the Gran Hotel Viena. Robb and the rest of the team are very excited to
have the chance to seek the spirit of one of history's most notorious
|They arrive at the hotel and are briefed by Veronica
Castellino, a docent with an intimate knowledge of the supposed
paranormal phenomena witnessed within its confines.
She tells of
floating lights, disembodied sounds, and even images of spirits captured
in photography. She's very interested to learn if Hitler's ghost is,

the Hotel Gran Viena doesn't disappoint. Robb, in particular,

He, Brandy and Ashley hear
responses they can't explain to his jiggling of a door handle. They also
make use of a static meter and see lots of fluctuations, some of which
seem to respond directly to requests from Robb.
Most harrowing is an
experience Robb has when he wanders down a hallway on his own, calling
out for Hitler to respond to him. First, the static meter spikes in a
way Robb has never seen. In addition, the batteries on two of his
cameras die very quickly, a phenomenon that Robb states can be caused by
spirits attempting to manifest.
Meanwhile, the rest of the team
is having experiences of their own. Dustin hears music and male voices
in a stairwell, and while his most terrifying encounter is with an
errant flock of pigeons, he's still unable to find an explanation for
the noises and voices he hears.
Joe and Paul find a tunnel in the
Worker's Wing, and Paul gets the chance to test out a new,
remote-controlled all-terrain camera in the space, which is too small
for an investigator to enter. Meanwhile, Brandy feels a hand on her leg
while investigating a room with Robb.

cropping up left and right, including several EVP hits that can't be
The most shocking piece of evidence comes, however, from
Barry, who sees the outline of a human form sitting on a bed in a
photograph taken by Robb.
Robb and Dustin present this evidence to
Veronica, but when she asks if they have any proof of Hitler's presence,
they regretfully have to decline. Still, they're very confident in
stating that the Gran Hotel Viena is a haunted location.
