Munich Third Reich Tour

1. Munich Third Reich Tour

Take a 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.
