Documentation Centre Nazi Party Rally Grounds
To this day, in Nuremberg’s southern districts, the remains of the buildings on the former Nazi Party Rally Grounds with their immense proportions are a vivid testimony to the megalomania of the National Socialist regime.
This area of eleven square kilometres was intended as an impressive backdrop for the Nazi party rallies staged here to demonstrate their power.
The Documentation Centre Nazi Party Rally Grounds (called Docu Centre) is located in the north wing of the Congress Hall, designed by the National Socialists to house 50,000 spectators, remained unfinished, though. With its “glass and steel arrow”, piercing the north wing, the Documentation Centre is a widely visible architectural counterpoint.
Visit Nuremberg’s historic rock-cut cellars
Through many centuries, the citizens of Nuremberg have built deep vaults and corridors into the bright red sandstone below their city. Today, the craft brewery “Hausbrauerei Altstadthof“ uses a small part of the widespread maze-like cellar system to mellow and store specialty beers and beer schnaps.
