Trace the beginnings of the rise of Nazi power in this tour to Munich and Nuremberg, which covers the early attempts by the Nazis to gain power in Munich and the early years from the seizure of power to the beginning of the War. The earliest days of Hitler’s rise to power are associated with Bavaria. A walking tour through Munich will introduce the sites connected with the early days of the Nazi party, while a short distance from the city is Dachau, the first concentration camp to be opened after their seizure of power. Please note that the Eagles Nest is only open May-Oct.

Nuremberg is inextricably linked with the immense rallies during the 1930s and your pupils can stand on the tribune of the Zeppelin Field from which Hitler reviewed the party faithful.
