On this tour we visit the central places in Nazi Germany, the places seen in countless pictures and movies about the Third Reich. We will experience the very locations where the events took place.

Our journey begins in Munich, where Adolf Hitler began his career as a politician and where the Nazi Party’s attempted putsch (coup d’état) took place in 1923. It was also in Munich that the Nazi Party was founded and had its headquarters. Both in Munich and in Berchtesgaden, the location of Hitler’s ‘Eagle’s Nest’, the historic heritage survives despite 60 years of attempts to suppress it. The Nazi Party’s many buildings are still to be found in Munich. In Berchtesgaden, Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest, and even the actual elevator that lead up to it, remains intact. There is also a museum here with access to Hitler’s underground bunker complex.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

In Nuremberg, we will visit the Reichsparteitagsgelände, The Nazi Party Rally Ground, best known from Leni Riefenstahl’s famous and infamous movie ‘Triumph of the Will’. The huge parade grounds still exist and are easily recognizable from films and photographs. We will visit the site and see the enormous facilities. It was also in Nuremberg that the aftermath of the war, the war crimes trials, took place. It was here that prominent Nazi leaders were convicted of their crimes.

We end our tour in Berlin, the capital of Nazi Germany and home of Hitler’s Reichskanzlei and many ministries and the center for the Nazi Party’s imposition of power – through the police, the Gestapo and the Security Service. We will visit the most famous locations such as the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag building and many other places associated with Adolf Hitler and the Nazis’ 13 year reign of terror.
