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.
A unique and fascinating tour of Munich's secret history. We show you 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. We walk you through the streets where Hitler and his Brownshirts fought their way to power and tell you how they did it. We show you the official Nazi Headquarters from where he bullied the world. We show you 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. We show you all these sites and give you the story. Nowhere else can you experience a tour like this because no other place has a history quite like this.
