Historical tour on Nazi dictatorship in Munich

After World War I Munich was the place where Adolf Hitler founded the Nazi Party. Munich became base for his troops’ operations and therefore was named “Capital of the Nazi Movement” by Hitler himself. This tour gives you an insight into the political ambiance in Munich during the 1920s and 1930s, when crises, frustration and incertitude led to radicalism and allowed for Hitler’s reign of terror to be established. We will follow the route of the main propaganda parades, from the old town hall, where the ‘Night of Broken Glass’ started in November 1938 . You will also be given information on daily life under Hitler’s reign, on resistance activities and on Jewish life in Munich then and today.
