    I was told that this is not the birthplace but the place where he lived after birth. It is a simple building housing a library ("Volksbücherei"). It seems that the place is frequently visited by fomer Nazis (the Soviet and other communists used to call them "fascists" which is clearly a flattering because compared to the Nazi crimes the joke...

  • A remarkable church

    The town parish church in mainly gothic style is quite huge for a town which at this time had only 2000 inhabitants.The spire is with its 101 meters the third highest in Austria! It is an indicator that Braunau was quite a rich and prosperous town.

Braunau am Inn Restaurants

  • Smallest professional brewery in the...

    It is quite a typical small local Gasthaus claiming to host the smallest professional microbrewery in the world. If you ask for the brewery you will be told that it is not at the place but in the cellar of the owner.You may even visit the brewery. A guided tour plus a Weisswurst snack and beer tasting costs 9 EUR. Call ahead if you are interested...

  • This name at this place!

    I really wondered to see a restaurant with this name right opposite the Hitler house. Enlarge the picture to see what is written there! I was not in it, because I had just half a meter Bratwurst at Bogner and even if I had any need of food or drink a sorts of hidden "political correctness" had kept me from entering. At other places I had no...

    Mozart showing his balls to the public

    by lotharlerch Updated Jul 8, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Braunau does not make many attempts to sell itself as a touristic destination - their possible target group will disappear in a few years simply due to the biological process. And all of Braunau tries to show that what Austria imagines to be "political correctness". Therefore it is absolutely impossible to purchase there any "Hitler souvenir", I have not even seen picture postcards of the Hitler house.

    What to buy: Buy Mozart balls instead! - there are not enough Hitler balls.

    Adolf was not the only one Austrian who went abroad to better develop his political talents.

    Not born in Braunau but in Graz and grown up in Thal bei Graz Arnold was elected for Governor of California.

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!

    Be careful when you ask people from Braunau about the birthplace of Hitler, some of them get angry and dont want to talk about it. The building is hidden somewhere, I have heared it is a home for mentally sick people.

  • Avoid the 20 April

    If you plan to visit Braunau avoid the 20 April because on 20 April (Führers Geburtstag, i.e. Hitler's birthday was the most important holiday in the Third Reich) the center of Braunau might be inaccessible for non-residents to prevent unwelcome festivities or demonstrations there but it can be assumed that it will be a bit more relaxed in a not...

Braunau am Inn Off The Beaten Path

  • Where Inn and Salzach rivers meet

    Not far south of Braunau on the way to Tarsdorf and Fúcking (see my pages!) the Salzach meets the bigger Inn which forms from that place on the border between Austria and Germany (the last kms to its end the Salzach is the frontier), a few km from here is the Bavarian Burghausen with a castle forming almost a city itself (opposite the Austrian...

  • Go to Fúcking

    Braunau is the capital city of a Bezirk (engl. District) which is in Austria an administrative unit below a state (the state in this case is Oberösterreich/Upper Austria). In this district (and in the neighbouring districts both in Austria and in Germany as well) are plenty of villages with extremely funny names and you may easily do a tour (even...

    Favorite thing: Today, on Hitler's birthday, it comes into my mind that the new Pope, Josef Ratzinger, who was elected on 19 April 2005, one day before Hitler's birthday, was also born here nearby, in Marktl am Inn in Bavaria http://www.markt-marktl.de/index.asp , just across the border, only 20 km (18 min. driving time) away from here.
