Reichsparteitagsgelände (Nazi Party Rally Grounds)
Even today, Nuremberg is a city that constantly springs to mind when one thinks of the Third Reich. In the early 1930s the Nazi Party built this monumental parade ground to host its annual convention, which was held here from 1933-38. Germany's largest surviving example of Nazi architecture was turned into a museum in 1985: the Geschichte für Alle (History for Everyone) organization, organizes guided tours, and a permanent exhibition called Fascination and Terror that can be seen in the grandstand.
First ,I really did'nt dislike anything regarding the city. Maybe one complaint I could think would be the exchange rate, as in the $ vs the Euro. My wife (German) & I were their to visit her 81 yr. old Dad. She decided not to go that day, so I went without her (no problem). I stayed @ the Wonderfull Motel One which was 2 blocks from the "Old Town" as I call it. I walked mostly but did the subway and buses too. I was flying around that town to catch as many sites I could the first day and then some more the following day. 2nd& last I revisited (Ist time for a concert in 1983 called the "Monsters of Rock") This time I had all my brain cells Working! this place is just way to cool. It really throws you back in time. Took great pictures & the whole 9 yards. We are returning in April for another visit. We do this annually and must return to see some more of this City. Her Dad lives north of Nurnberg in a town called Bamberg. This Whole Town is just Beautiful! Enjoy your visit. You won't be disapointed.
