Overview

Munich was the birthplace of the Nazi Party and as such is an important place to visit for any student of WW2. On this walking tour you will learn about the rise of Hitler and the N.S.D.A.P., how they gained power and the role the city played during WW2.

On this walking tour you will visit key sites associated with this period. This tour is fully illustrated with period artefacts to further your understanding of the period. 

If you are based in the city centre we can meet you at your hotel, otherwise we meet in the main train station (Hauptbahnhof).

Munich is a city of great beauty and splendour, known as much for beautiful churches and Lederhosen as for the Oktoberfest. There was a time however, that Munich was known for other, less wholesome reasons. The period following the Great War of 1914-18 was very traumatic for Germany and Munich was no exception. In a time of great social and economic unrest, Munich became a hot-bed of political extremism and for a short time, a Soviet Republic.

Out of this chaotic period the Nazi Party emerged, under the leadership of an Austrian by the name of Adolf Hitler.

Munich was christened by the Nazis as “Hauptstadt der Bewegung” or “Capital of the Movement”. The beautiful city on the river Isar became the heart, the spiritual home of a movement that would plunge Europe into another world war and lead to the deaths of millions.

Hopefully, by learning about this dark period in human history we can, perhaps in our own little way try to ensure that such a calamity never happens again.

On this tour you will see and learn about:

The Great War and the Treaty of Versailles

The origins of the Nazi Party

The birthplace of the SS

The infamous “Beer Hall Putsch”

“Crystal Night” and the origins of the Holocaust

The Nazi Party Headquarters and the signing of “The Munich Pact”

The Allied bombing campaign

How the city fell to US forces in 1945

And much more besides

We did this walking tour with our kids and it was good to see a few of the main locations in the city. Our Guide did a great job keeping the kids (9, 8 and 7 years old) interested as well as mom and dad. Some of the contact is a little graphic and he answered more of our detailed questions while the kids were running around and playing... We saw the HQ for the Nazi party, a few of the areas they had their parades... We stopped enough that the kids didn't get too tired...
