The sale of Adolf Hitler's family home in the Austrian town of Braunau am Inn has triggered concern that it could become a shrine for Nazi sympathisers.

The unassuming house where Hitler was born in 1889 has been put on the market, priced at $3.5 million.

Residents and local politicians fear that the property could fall into the hands of far-right extremists.

Braunau’s mayor wants to prevent that happening, but the council does not have the funds to buy it.

The building is currently used by an organisation helping the disabled and has, at various times in its history, housed a library, bank and technical institute.
