(at around 37 minutes) Stauffenberg and his adjunct are shown being driven on their way to have the new version of Walküre signed by Hitler. There is a panoramic view of the exterior of the Berghof (Hitler's private residence). It is shown situated on the extreme top of a hill with large mountains (the Alps) a kilometer away in the distance, but nothing directly behind it. In reality, the Berghof was built onto the side of a hill and not on the top. In any period photograph of the Berghof you will clearly see the hill continues to ascend behind the building and there was a thick forest of trees behind it as well (covering the hill well above the height of the Berghof's roof). In the film no trees are shown behind the main building and it is shown to basically stand on its own, on the top of a hill.
