Hitler Walking Tours

Tourists Line Up For Guided Hitler Walking Tours in Munich

If you're booking a vacation, here's an option you might consider: visitors to Munich are clamoring to head out on Adolf Hitler walking tours. Exploring the German city where the dictator began his Nazi Party 10 years before he was elected German chancellor. The tour wends through city sites with Adolf Hitler significance — which most contemporary locals are no longer even aware of, like the location where Hitler gave his first public speech (upstairs at the world-famous Hofbraeuhaus beer hall in 1918) and a nearby pub where he liked to drink and skip out on the bill. To see who's taking these tours,


Most of the tour-goers aren't Hitler fans, instead they're visitors who've been to the Dachau concentration camp memorial on the outskirts of Munich. According to one of the owners of the tour company, "after that, a lot of them are curious to know how Hitler came to power," One visitor from Puerto Rico said, "I've read so much about this, and I just could not comprehend how the Germans could follow a guy like that. After seeing the place, I can understand it better."

Do you head to serious historical landmarks on vacation? Would you combine learning about atrocities like the Holocaust with your leisure time? Can you see taking a Hitler tour?

HAHAH it's my best friends hand. He was tousling up my hair at my photo shoot. So this is an outtake. :)

I'm sure it is fascinating and if you want to do it than by all means do it. I am actually pretty well educated on the topic, as much as I'd like to be. I just have no desire to go on a Hitler walking tour. Just like I don't want to see the hospital where Sadam Hussein was born or visit Osama's first school house. Reading about it is fine, but that's where my interest ends. I just hope that this doesn't attract that horrible group of people that revere this despicable man.

I am sure it is fascinating and I think it is better to know these things, then not. And I am pretty sure it's not a hitler worshipping walk, it's just education on a very influential man in history.

I would do this too. I mean if I was going all the way to Germany, I would want to do something different, and this seems like that would fit

I would go on this tour, Hitlers humble beginnings, artist mind and rise to power are fascinating

i always find out something cool is going on in a city like, right after I leave it. DANG! i find it fascinating to drive through the countryside of Germany and Italy and imagine what it was like to live there during the wars. Especially in the small villages, where so little has changed in outward appearance. I can hardly imagine the fear people endured on a daily basis.

I would love to do this. I am really thinking about planning a trip. I loved the history of England and France - it was very worthwhile.

I wouldn't personally have an interest in this but I can see that people would be curious. My vacations aren't based on historical significance. I've just never been so interested in a period of history that it made me want to travel to that place to see it for that alone.

Sure I would take the tour. Learning from History will only give us a better understanding of our future.

I like visiting historic landmarks and would certainly make time on a vacation to see something in the vicinity, and I can imagine taking a vacation that focused on history (Cambodia and England come to mind). If I was in Germany, I'd be interested in learning more about Hitler - and the article says most of the tourists who do the Hitler tour have also been to at least one of his concentration camps.

I would absolutely go on this! Hitler's rise to power is fascinating.
