Description

Join a Private Historian Guide on the streets of Munich’s Old Town to discover the city’s darkest secret - the origin of the Nazi Party. Explore in detail the history of Third Reich, from Hitler’s rise to power, throughout WWII, to the bombing and liberation of Munich in 1945. Get ready to ask difficult questions about the role of Munich and its citizens in the rise and fall of National Socialism in Germany. Your 3-hour walking tour will begin in the heart of Munich's Old Town, at Marienplatz, where many Nazi propaganda events were held. The reconstructed New Town Hall (Neues Rathaus) still remains the citizens of the 1945 Munich bombings that demolished most of the downtown. Hear the story of how Munich became the capital of the National Socialist movement as you walk through these historic streets and see the famous beer hall Hofbräuhaus am Platzl where Adolf Hitler made a speech founding the National Socialist German Workers' Party in 1920. Follow the route of the infamous Beer Hall Putsch to Feldherrnhalle and Odeonsplatz and learn about the Nazi’s attempt to storm the Bavarian Defense Ministry, which inspired Hitler to write his semi-autobiographical political manifesto Mein Kampf (''My Struggle''). You will also learn about the resistance against the Nazi regime in the city, such as the White Rose Group led by five university students. During the tour you will see the Monument to the Victims of National Socialism and the former office buildings of the Nazi Party, including Führerbau (''the Führer's building'') where Chamberlain and Hitler signed the Munich Agreement in 1938. The final stop will be at Königsplatz, which was the site of the Nazi Party’s mass rallies and book burning. Choose the 4,5-hour option to dive deeper into the history of National Socialism in Germany by visiting the Munich Documentation Center for the History of National Socialism with your Expert Guide. The documentation includes photographs, documents and texts as well as film projections and media stations that illustrate the origin and rise of the Nazi movement, war and postwar period in Munich. Your Private Guide will help you understand the complex subject and answer all questions about the causes and consequences of National Socialism and WWII.
