Full description
Take a 3-hour walking tour of Munich and examine the infamous streets where some of the darkest stories of human history took root. Hitler referred to Munich as “Die Hauptstadt der Bewegung” (“Capital of the Movement”) and the city and its surrounds were central to the Nazi leader’s rise to power.

During the tour, you will examine how a nation of people known for their level-headed thinking allowed what is perhaps the greatest tragedy of the 20th-Century to unfold, and how the world lay sleeping while the Nazis built their war machine and solidified power.

You will discover how Munich has emerged from almost complete destruction during the Allied bombings and has been restored to its former glory. You will visit the famous Hofbräuhaus, the world's most famous beer hall, and the birthplace of the Nazi Party. You will also go to the Feldherrnhalle, Brienner Straße - home of the Nazi Party's powerbase – Führerbau – where the infamous Munich Agreement took place - Altes Rathaus, sites of the German resistance movements, memorials to victims of the Third Reich, and much more.

I would highly recommend this. Our tour guide (Jax) was absolutely brilliant and very knowledgeable and obviously had a passion for his subject. There was a lot of interesting information and photos which left me with a greater understanding of the topic. Unfortunately I missed the last hour of the tour due to injury (which I incurred a couple of hours before the tour which left me with a sore knee), but I still had enough info to be able to research myself and would book on this tour again a second time without hesitation.

Tom was our tour guide for this incredibly interesting tour. He was absolutely suburb and so knowledgeable about everything, must admit we were all a bit unsure about three hours of walking and talking but he kept everyone engaged and we all took away so much from this tour. We went back to sites we would never have found had it not been for Tom and and as well as being a fountain of knowledge of the rise of the nazi party and the early days of Hitler he was also able to tell us about many interesting places we could visit later and also pointed us to a fantastic bar at the end. Can’t recommend this tour enough Thanks From the southern boys .

Well prepared guided tour, by Jax. We walked down the memory lane chronologically from Hitler's early life to the hay days of Nazi. The history of the resistance movement was also recounted, in the historical setting of this historical town. Jax also put us in places that are shielded away from the wind and rain. Highly recommended
