What to Expect
Head to Marienplatz to meet your tour guide and then set off to discover Munich’s wartime sites with your group.
As stories of Munich’s history and the era of the Nazi-ruled Third Reich ring in your ears, discover key landmarks, such as the Führerbau building in Königsplatz. See Brienner Strasse, the street that was believed to be heavily linked to the rise of the Nazi party, and learn about the Allied bombs that rained down on the beautiful Bavarian city.
Other sites of interest include the art-laden Haus der Kunst and the one-time Gestapo head office, where Hitler’s fearsome secret police worked. Get the lowdown on the resistance and postwar movements, and learn about vergangenheitsbewältigung, a word that translates into English as “overcoming the past.”
Finally, return to Marienplatz for the end of the tour.
