Many of Munich's buildings carry the secrets of a dark past. Just six 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'. Find out why on this fascinating walking tour.

Munich was the birthplace of the Nazi Party and the home of 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, from Hitler's failed Putsch to the horrific Kristallnacht, the largest anti-Semitic progrom seen in Europe for centuries and a dismal milestone on the road to the Holocaust were launched, Munich was the nursery of a movement that would shake humanity with some of the most infamous and terrible events in history.
In a unique and fascinating tour, our dedicated guide will open up this hidden history for you. We'll show you the beer-halls which hosted the first small gatherings of the fanatics who one day would lead the Third Reich, and the place where Hitler made his first major speeches. We'll walk you through the streets where Hitler and his brownshirts fought their way to power.
The irony is that while much of central Munich was devastated by Allied bombing, many Nazi buildings survived and still stand today. 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'll show you all these sites and give you the story.

Dan did a great job. We so enjoyed his wealth of knowledge and the interactive way in which it was delivered. We would highly recommend! Not only was it informative, but he made it very personal and realistic by including stories from his own family’s history. Five stars!!

Well documented, interesting , sensitive and engaging presentation done by our nice guide Kevin, who dissected in detail the key points of inception, evolution and dawn fall of the 3-rd Reich while trailing with us the most iconic places and buildings relating to the subject in Munchen.

Jeff is a great guide who is very knowledgeable and personable. I highly recommend his tours. I was on a tour with him for this tour and Neuschwanstein. Both were equally informative and fun.

Michael Owens was a great guide! The structure was great and it’s not too much walking! Wish I hadn’t seen it so I could do it again!

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.


Former Gestapo Headquarters Munich

The Gestapo and SS started in Munich, Bavaria and remained an important center of operations. The building now is a German History museum.

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.

Dodger's Ally memorial

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.

Swastikas on the ceiling were blended in rather than painted over
