Curt is fully vaccinated and has dramatically lowered the price of this tour which dives deeper in the history of the Nazis than other tours. Novice or expert, you're guaranteed to learn things you did not know about Hitler and the Nazi movement. You'll see sites of mass rallies, book burnings and the sites of Hitler's most famous speeches. You'll view historic photos on an iPad and see before-and-after pictures of the mass destruction of Allied bombings on the city. It was in Munich (not Berlin) where Hitler rose to power. Here Hitler's shrapnel-pocked buildings still stand where you'll see Swastikas, Nazi helmets and the largest Nazi Eagles in Germany. Curt's tours are ongoing discussions of more than "when", but how and why it all began in Munich. He covers the military, economic and social aspects of Hitler's Germany. Curt is a native of the US and has been giving his Third Reich tours in Munich for over ten years.
