We spent an amazing morning with our tour guide, Josh, learning history and seeing some amazing sights! Even though it was a cold and rainy day, we thoroughly enjoyed what Josh shared. He clearly has done a lot of research and had lots of pictures and visuals to share in addition to taking us to several locations in Munich. We’re still telling family and friends all that we learned.

This tour was great, there was a group of 7 of us and we all really enjoyed it. Our guide (American chap from Rhode Island) was a master of his craft, delivered a to the point narrative of this dark but important chapter in modern history. Highly recommend!

Our tour guide Michael was wonderful. He has lived in Munich for 20 years (from USA) his knowledge is impressive and explains things exceptionally well. We had walked around the same monuments and landmarks earlier that day and it was so fascinating to hear the stories and see the photos (on his iPad) of the history of these places. Highly recommend!!!

My wife and I did this tour with Radius tours and it was excellent, our tour guide Ian was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the rise of the Nazis and Adolf Hitler. I would thoroughly recommend this tour without hesitation. Thanks Ian, great bloke except him being a Spurs supporter but I can forgive as it was a great tour.

Third Reich Walking Tour, Munich: Hitler didn't build it, but....

Hitler used this existing monument as the site for the famous book burning, which happened right here in Munich and not Berlin for those Indiana Jones fans. Hitler and his brown shirts stirred the nearby university students to eliminate all immoral books and those written by Jews.

Plaque noting the Nazi Partys role in WWII

This plaque is on the wall inside the arch way of the new Town Hall leading off Marieplatz. This plaque notes that the Nazi Party initiated a world catastrophe, i.e. WWII, and caused millions of Europeans to become refugees. 143 000 refugees moved into bombed out Munich at the end of WWII.

If you didn't want to pass by the Feldernnhalle memorial and give the Nazi salute, you walked down Dodger's Ally, that is until the Gestapo started taking names.
