Third Reich remainings in Munich

So today I´ve cycled around in Munich with a couple of addresses of places where you can still see some remainings and ruins that date from the nazi period. What I found quite shook me in a weird way.


The Führerbau at Arcisstrasse 12. You can still see where the eagle and swastika was attached on the wall. Hitler´s office was in the room with those three windows just above the balcony.


Haus der Deutschen Kunst was built in the neo-classical Third Reich style during 1933-37, and is still today an art museum. You can see the swastika-motif mosaics in the ceiling panels.


Schellingstrasse 50, former Nazi Party offices. Headless nazi-eagle above the doorway, the swastica of course - removed.


Another former nazikvarter near Haus der deutschen Kunst.

There´s a website with even more of these kind of ruins from the whole of Germany. All of these pics and more there.

Thanks for sharing the pics. You must have gone the same time as me. I organised my pics into a site I use for my history classes; pretty useful when you teach in Peking, far from the places you talk about!
