Full description

Join a Private Historian Guide on the streets of Munich’s Old Town to learn about the city’s role in the course of World War II as the ‘Capital of the Nazi Movement’. Immerse yourself in the story of Third Reich and World War II, from the foundation of the Nazi Party to the bombing and liberation of Munich in 1945. Discover the dark secrets of Munich!

Your basic 2,5-hour walking tour begins in the heart of Munich’s Old Town, at Marienplatz, which was almost completely destroyed in the Allied bombings. As you walk around the medieval city center and view the reconstructed buildings like the magnificent New Town Hall, your Expert Guide will explain why Munich was so important to the Third Reich during WWII.

During this original tour you will learn about the first meeting of the Nazi Party at the Hofbräuhaus beer hall, the infamous Beer Hall Putsch, the signing of the Munich Agreement and much more. The guide will show you the Feldherrnhalle monument at Odeonsplatz, where a fatal gun battle took place during the 1923 march of the Nazi supporters. You will also see “the Führer’s building” (Führerbau) and other office buildings that served Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party at Königsplatz.

Choose the 4-hour option to learn more about the history of National Socialism in Germany and the Third Reich’s involvement in World War II. This option includes a visit to the Munich Documentation Center for the History of National Socialism.
