From its roots as a medieval salt-trading center, through the rule of the mid-19th century ‘Mad King’ King Ludwig II, to the devastation of the World Wars, Munich has a long and colorful history and there are plenty of historic sights to see.

While traces of Bavaria’s earlier history are kept alive in the region’s many magnificent castles, it’s the city’s WWII history that’s under the spotlight on a historic tour of Munich. As the birthplace of the Nazi Party and home to its headquarters, Munich became the backdrop for many of the most notorious atrocities of Nazi rule. Following in the footsteps of the Nazi party offers a unique journey through history, from the early party meetings held in the city’s beer halls, through Hitler’s rise to power, to the post-war reconstruction and preservation efforts.

A Third Reich walking tour takes in the former Nazi buildings that remarkably withstood the war (sadly many earlier buildings were destroyed), as well as visiting the poignant monuments and memorials erected in honor of the victims of WWII. Another shocking site is the nearby Dachau Concentration Camp, the original work-camp known as the 'Academy of Terror', and touring the remains of the camp is a harrowing experience, aiming to inform and educate visitors about the holocaust, as well as preserve the memory of the German dissidents, outspoken clergymen, Jehovah's Witnesses, homosexuals, Jews, Polish civilians and others who lost their lives at the camp.
