11-Day Third Reich Tour - 2020

TR_D11

Introduction

On this 11-day tour, we trace the political, economic and ideological reasons behind Hitler’s rise to power, visiting places where he rallied followers, held diplomatic meetings, commanded armies and finally met his demise. Nuremberg, one-time capital of the Holy Roman Empire, and the Hanseatic city of Hamburg provide the historical and cultural context for understanding the events that led to the outbreak of WWII, while the scenic mountain resort of Berchtesgaden offers a glimpse into the opulent life of NSDAP officials. We trace the past in the historic buildings of Munich, and in the ruins of grandeur and propaganda set in stone at the Party Rally Grounds. We finish our journey with visits to iconic pre-war, Nazi and Communist sites in the lively European city of Berlin. The September departure of this tour includes the full Oktoberfest experience in Munich in a raucous beer tent.
