NATIONAL SOCIALISM IN MUNICH
A 2.5 – 3 hour tour through Munich’s darker history, the official capital of the Nazi regime and “Hauptstadt der Bewegung” (Capital of the Movement), where the Nazi party was spawned in 1920 in the world famous Hofbräuhaus.
Learn about Hitler`s rise to power and the key events that took place in Munich during the 12 years of the “Third Reich”, such as the 1923 Beer Hall Putsch, Kristallnacht in 1938 and the failed assassination attempt by Georg Elsner in the Burgerbräukeller on the 8th of November 1939.
We will conclude the tour at the former Nazi HQ building, the “FÜHRERBAU”, where the “Munich Agreement” was signed on 29th September, 1938 by the world leaders Benito Mussolini, Edouard Delardier and Neville Chamberlain, which sealed the fate of the Sudetenland, handing it over to the German Reich. This would mark the beginning of Hitler`s preparation for war and lead to the eventual destruction of most European cities including Munich. Hear about the last days in Hitler`s bunker in Berlin and the eventual ‘downfall’ of Hitler`s 1,000 year Reich.
A fascinating and compelling glimpse into Munich`s “darker” history.
