Hitler and the Third Reich Munich Walking Tour

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 notorious crimes, 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, including those who sacrificed their lives in opposing its hateful ideology. We'll show you all these sites and give you the story.

Great guide, interesting history. The sites are not as exciting as the stories. Recommend for any history buff or just wanting to understand how Hitler managed to come to power.

TOUR GUIDE WAS EXCELLENT!!! Energetic and knowledgeable - We made the most out of one day stop in Vienna. Without a tour guide, we would have missed the story behind the buildings. Hitler and the Third Reich Munich Walking Tour allowed us to fully experience the buildings and sites visited.

Many thanks to Steve the tour guide. This was an alternative view of Munich delivered in an entertaining way through a captivating story. The use of photos to recreate the moment at key spots on the tour really left me in that moment in history. Well done Steve, you have a real talent.
