Description

In the not-so-distant past, Munich bore the official title, “Hauptstadt der Bewegung” - Capital of the Nazi Movement. This was the city that the Allied Supreme Commander General Eisenhower called “the cradle of the Nazi beast.” Unknown to the casual tourist, many of Munich's buildings carry the mysteries of a dark past, and this 2.5-hour walking tour will uncover those secrets. You will learn how Munich became the birthplace of the Nazi Party and the stage upon which some of the Nazis' most notorious crimes were launched, from Hitler's failed putsch to the horrific Kristallnacht - the largest anti-Semitic pogrom seen in western Europe for centuries, and a dismal milestone on the road to the Holocaust. You will visit the beer-halls that hosted the first small gatherings of the fanatics who one day would lead the Third Reich, and the places where Hitler made his first major speeches. Walk through the streets where Hitler and his Brownshirts fought their way to power, and learn just how they did it. You will go to the official Nazi Headquarters from where Hitler bullied the world, and see buildings that bear the scars of the Second World War. The irony is that while much of central Munich was devastated by Allied bombing, many Nazi buildings survived and still stand today. And standing alongside them are memorials to the city's many victims of Nazism, including those who sacrificed their lives in opposing its hateful ideology.
