Description

Munich, the peaceful and openminded city, has a dark past. It takes us back to the time of National Socialism. Munich played the decisive role in the rise of the Nazis. It was here that an unknown Austrian soldier became the feared dictator of the Third Reich. Hitler later thanked Munich with the dubious honorary title of 'capital of the movement.' The result was a veritable building boom. Numerous propaganda buildings were erected, most of which survived the war unscathed. As silent witnesses of the times, they still characterize Munich's cityscape today. But how did it come about that Europe's flourishing metropolis of art and culture became the Birthplace of National Socialism? This is exactly the question I would like to explore on this tour. Together we will visit the most important buildings and squares that were built by the National Socialists or misused as places of worship. There where Hitler held his first speech, the Nazis celebrated their parades or Munich had to endure the bombing war. Last Question: Why me? I’m Alex, a young (32) professional tour guide, born and raised in Munich, with a deep historical knowledge. I have been involved with this topic since my youth. My drive was above all to understand. I wanted to try to understand how the rise of National Socialism in Germany could be possible. And how this inhuman dictatorship could destroy Europe just within a few years. I would like to share this knowledge on my tour, because the reasons for the rise of Hitler and the National Socialists can be found here in Munich. But one point is important to me: Even though we're dealing with a serious topic on this tour, that doesn't mean we can't laugh. From my point of view, a guided tour should above all be fun. Moreover, you don't have to be a history professional for this tour. On the contrary, anyone can participate here without any problems, young or old. And for a better understanding, the tour runs chronologically to the historical events. Alex
