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 11 km2 was intended as an impressive backdrop for the Nazi party rallies staged here to demonstrate their power.

Nowadays there is a documentation centre with background information about the rally grounds and the history of the party including the Nuremberg trials after the Second World War.

For current visiting hours, please visit the website of the museum.
