Third Reich & WWII Tour Walking Tour

1. Third Reich & WWII Tour Walking Tour

Take a 2-hour walking tour of Munich to discover one of the darkest moments in the city’s history, learning of the birth of Nazism, the rise of Hitler, and the infamous Third Reich. In 1919, Germany was emerging from World War I as a defeated and humiliated nation, with Munich in the grips of hyperinflation and Bavaria dominated by revolution and assassination. Out of this fertile soil of chaos rose the Nazi movement, and one of history’s most powerful dictators, Adolf Hitler. Follow the inception of Nazism, from the first mass meeting at the Hofbräuhaus to the failed attempt to seize power at the Feldherrenhalle. You will go to the site of party rallies at Königsplatz, and stop in the Hofgarten to talk about The White Rose Resistance Movement. The tour covers all the important facts and sites that played a role in the origin of this dark chapter, which ended with the beautiful city of Munich in ruins and the second world war cutting deep wounds across Deutschland.

Dorothy did a great job of explaining the events that led to someone like Hitler coming into power. She also did a fine job of explaining how the sites we visited played a role in the rise of Nazi Germany. I especially enjoyed looking at the pictures of the sites we visited as they looked during that time period and after the war.

The guide was very knowledgeable, clear and generous with stories. I recommend the tour to anyone willing to listen and learn. Anyone visiting Germany should go on these tours even if you well know it’s history.

Instructions for how to ride were very easy and he gave us enough practice time before the tour. The histrionic and cultural insights in the center of Munich were very interesting.

Very informative and interesting. Great way to see dinner of the city's highlights too.

very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide, excellent tour
