It was high time that Munich reckoned with its dark past. After all, here is where Hitler started, and the center shows how such a thing could happen. Please spend time looking at the less sexy time of the Weimar-era political and economic instability.

very interesting, found out some new details, although history is well known, glad it wasn't totally concentrated on the "usual" topic but really more Munich-centered, including folks places in town!

If you’re interested in WWII history, you must take a couple of hours to understand and appreciate the precursors to Hitler’s rise to power and the things that enabled his ideology to thrive. The audio guide is great and the descriptions and images of every...More

I suspect it's mainly people with an interest in history and WWII who visit the NS-Dokumentationszentrum and that's a shame. Located on the ground that once held the NAZI party headquarters, the NS-Dokumentationszentrum tells the history of the rise and fall of National Socialism, and...More
