Third Reich Walking Tour of Munich in English

Unknown to the casual tourist, many of Munich’s buildings carry the secrets of a dark past. Just eight decades ago, Munich bore the official title “Hauptstadt der Bewegung” – the Capital of the Nazi Movement. This was the city that the Allied Supreme Commander General Eisenhower called “the cradle of the Nazi beast.”

Munich was the birthplace of the Nazi Party and home to 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 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 — Munich was the nursery for a movement that would shake humanity with some of the most infamous and terrible events in history.
