An incredible insight into an unimaginable era
Nazi Party Congress Hall, Nuremberg
Perhaps you may think, why bother?
Adolf Hitler’s past isn’t worth giving any airspace to, or even blog space, come to that.
Well, to be perfectly honest, I find it mind-blowing (and incredibly interesting) how this dictator showered his country with such propaganda.

A reference guide
I love nothing more than planning a trip and so often I use the DK Eyewitness books. I find them extremely informative, easy to follow and the pictures and maps tempt you into discovering more.
We used a previous version of this book to plan our Germany road trips, now you can grab the revised copy.
Nuremberg Rally Grounds
Years of planning
But Hitler had been building up to this for years.
I just can’t imagine that anyone in their wildest nightmares, could have conceived the atrocities that were to be perpetrated onto innocent people.

Nazi Party Rally Ground Museum
“Fascination and Terror”
The exhibition inside is incredibly interesting, and the audio guide is a must as it gives you such an insight into how the whole Nazi Party era unfolded. How propaganda was spread across the nation, and the horrific impact it had on innocent lives.
Allow plenty of time for this exhibition, as there is so much information to absorb and so many touching stories to listen to.
There are some incredibly moving pictures within the exhibition and images you’ll never want to see again in your life. One exhibit along a railway track displayed name tags for all those who lost their lives in Nazi concentration camps.
Guided Walking Tour
The once-imposing grandstand where Adolf Hitler would have emerged from to greet his supporters is now a shadow of its former self. The columned galleries that ran along the top were destroyed by Nuremberg City in 1967.

The coming years
