Walking Tour of the Third Reich with a Private Guide
On this gripping history tour you will explore the origins of the Third Reich. You will learn how the Nazis emerged in Munich after the First World War and how they made Munich their "Capital of the Movement" after they had come to power in 1933. There is a lot of architecture from this dark age of German history which you will get to see. In addition to original buildings which played a crucial role on the Nazis' march to power I will show you many impressive photographs from that time. Finally, we will investigate how the population of Germany is now trying to come to terms with this heavy legacy.
We will see buildings and monuments which illustrate the Nazi party's early days in the 1920s and Adolf Hitler's rise to power in the 1930s as well as memorials to the victims of the Nazi regime. It is possible to end the tour at the newly opened Nazi Documentation Centre nearby the location of the former party headquarters.

Stefan made our trip to Munich exceptional. His knowledge of history and connecting Munich's past and present was especially enlightening. He was on time, on task and thoroughly enjoyable. Thank you Stefan for encouraging our son's interest in history!
