Munich was not always the modern liberal city that you see today, in fact, during the early part of the 20th century it was known for being the Capital City of the Nazi Movement.
During this 2.5-hour walking tour an experienced local guide will take you back into that dark period of Munich's history to discover how the movement was able to form and grow.
Your guide will take you to some of the former beer halls and building that Adolf Hitler used to make is earliest speeches, and where fascist groups would meet to discuss and eventually form the Nazi Party.
Your guide will give a detailed and honest account for the oppression and atrocities which took place during the Third Reich, hear about the twisted Nazi ideology, the Kristallnacht and the tyranny against Jewish residents and political opponents.
Many of the building built during the Nazi era managed to survive the destruction of war and bombing, so you will have the chance to see authentic Nazi Architecture, including a building which once served as the headquarters to the Nazi Party.
You will also stop to visit the City Monuments to the people who suffered and lost their lives or livelihoods at the hands of Hitler and the Third Reich.
