Full description

Join a private tour to discover Munich's darkest secret: the origin of the Nazi Party. Explore the tragic history of the Third Reich, from Hitler’s rise to power to the bombing and liberation of Munich. Ask difficult questions about the role of the city in the rise and fall of National Socialism.

Begin your tour in the heart of Munich's Old Town, at Marienplatz, where many Nazi propaganda events were held. See the reconstructed New Town Hall and hear the story of how Munich became the capital of the National Socialist movement.

Come across the famous beer hall, Hofbräuhaus am Platzl, where Adolf Hitler made a speech founding the National Socialist German Workers' Party in 1920. Follow the route of the infamous Beer Hall Putsch to Feldherrnhalle and Odeonsplatz.

Learn about the Nazi’s attempt to storm the Bavarian Defense Ministry, which inspired Hitler to write his infamous semi-autobiographical political manifesto 'Mein Kampf'. Learn about the resistance against the Nazi regime in the city, such as the White Rose Group led by five university students.

Gaze at the Monument to the Victims of National Socialism and the former office buildings of the Nazi Party, including Führerbau, where Chamberlain and Hitler signed the Munich Agreement in 1938. The final stop will be at Königsplatz, the site of the Nazi Party’s mass rallies and book burning. Choose the longer tour option to dive deeper into the history of National Socialism in Germany by visiting the Munich Documentation Center. Browse through photographs, documents, and film projections that illustrate the origin of the Nazi movement, war, and postwar period in Munich.
