Hitler and the Third Reich Munich Walking Tour
"Munich was the birthplace of the Nazi Party and the home of its headquarters. The voice of Adolf Hitler resounded around the public squares and streets of Munich before being heard anywhere else in Germany. As the stage upon which some of the Nazis' most from Hitler's failed Putsch to the horrific Kristallnacht the largest anti-Semitic progrom seen in Europe for centuries and a dismal milestone on the road to the Holocaust were launched Munich was the nursery of a movement that would shake humanity with some of the most infamous and terrible events in history. In a unique and fascinating tour our dedicated guide will open up this hidden history for you. We'll show you the beer-halls which hosted the first small gatherings of the fanatics who one day would lead the Third Reich and the place where Hitler made his first major speeches. We'll walk you through the streets where Hitler and his brownshirts fought their way to power. The irony is that while much of central Munich was devastated by Allied bombing many Nazi buildings survived and still stand today. Standing alongside them are memorials to the city's many victims of Nazism
