Dan did an excellent job of telling the story of Hitlers early days in Munich and weaving it with his own family history.

Informative introduction to the rise of Hitler in Munich. The tour included highlights of various locations in Munich associated with Hitler and the Third Reich.

Keith was very passionate about his job and did a great job in taking us all the various important locations on this tour. He walked a little fast for most everyone, so it was difficult to keep up at times. We suggest that he have everyone meet in one of the locations on the tour, instead of the office in the main Munich train station, as we all (a group of about 18 people or so) had to board the metro train together and ride for 2 stops. It was not an easy task, especially since Oktoberfest was in full swing. We all got it done, but was quite stressful to stay together through the crowds and keep up with Keith. Very good tour overall and we learned a lot!!

Guide very well prepared. It does involve a good bit of walking at a brisk pace so be prepared for that. Our guide, Mat, was able to put the important points of the historical rise of the Nazi party. He was able to draw the picture without overwhelming us with excessive unnecessary details. He knew very interesting anecdotal stories. We were very satisfied. Headsets would be a good addition to these tours. It is difficult to hear in a group out in the noise of downtown unless you are in the front of the group.

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.

The irony was Hitler giving talks at this location.

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.
