Many of Munich's buildings carry the secrets of a dark past. Just six decades ago, Munich bore the official title, Hauptstadt der Bewegung, the Capital of the Nazi Movement. This was the city that the Allied Supreme Commander General Eisenhower called 'the cradle of the Nazi beast'. Find out why on this fascinating walking tour.
- Step back in time on a history tour
- Small group ensures personal service
- Explore the local streets on a walking tour of the city
- Informative, friendly and professional guide
In a unique and fascinating tour, our dedicated guide will open up this hidden history for you. We'll show you the beer-halls which hosted the first small gatherings of the fanatics who one day would lead the Third Reich, and the place where Hitler made his first major speeches. We'll walk you through the streets where Hitler and his brownshirts fought their way to power.
The irony is that while much of central Munich was devastated by Allied bombing, many Nazi buildings survived and still stand today. Standing alongside them are memorials to the city's many victims of Nazism, including those who sacrificed their lives in opposing its hateful ideology. We'll show you all these sites and give you the story.

My husband and I came to Germany to visit our native German friends who live and work in Ingolstadt just outside of Munich. We all decided to go into Munich for this walking tour while visiting Germany and ALL of us were so happy we did! Our German hosts said that they learned so many details that they have never heard before and saw sites that they have never seen! My husband and I loved this tour because it taught us so much about Munich but also complemented our Berlin walking tour we took earlier in this trip. There were so many connections we could make that enriched our time in both Berlin and Munich. Keith was an incredible guide! He knows so much and is so clearly passionate about his work. What an amazing tour and such a must-do in Munich!!

This tour is well worth doing if you are interested in Hitler and his reign, life and other quirky facts my favourite bits of the period in history in Munich and Germany. Our guide was very knowledgeable, communicated the information well and in a way that was factual and not about his own personal opinion. There was some humour and general chit chat which made it a great tour overall with people from varied other countries.
