Full description

Take a 2-hour walking tour of Munich to discover one of the darkest moments in the city’s history, learning of the birth of Nazism, the rise of Hitler, and the infamous Third Reich.

In 1919, Germany was emerging from World War I as a defeated and humiliated nation, with Munich in the grips of hyperinflation and Bavaria dominated by revolution and assassination. Out of this fertile soil of chaos rose the Nazi movement, and one of history’s most powerful dictators, Adolf Hitler.

Follow the inception of Nazism, from the first mass meeting at the Hofbräuhaus to the failed attempt to seize power at the Feldherrnhalle. You will go to the site of party rallies at Königsplatz, and stop in the Hofgarten to talk about The White Rose Resistance Movement.

The tour covers all the important facts and sites that played a role in the origin of this dark chapter, which ended with the beautiful city of Munich in ruins and the second world war cutting deep wounds across Deutschland.

    The guide was very friendly and curious, well informed and interesting. The pacing of the tour is excellent and you get the feeling there is no rush, there is always time to ask questions. We live in Munich and have visited a couple of places on the tour before , but the guide has given a new light on these by drawing you into the rich history. Highly recommended for both tourists and locals !

    Danielle was amazing. Really knowledgeable on the history of the Third Reich and the events that took place in and around Munich but also what led up to the events and the key figures in WWI and II. Could not recommend this tour highly enough. It gives you a great over view of a large city as well as the history

    I had been to Dachau before and I considered it a valuable lifetime experience back in the day, but this tour took it into a different level. Our guide was great, the tour was perfectly structured, he gave us all the required background historical information so everyone no matter their background could follow. He practically achieved to travel us back in time and picture what took place in the camp. A great experience, highly recommended whether people are interested in history or not.
