Dokumentationszentrum Reichsparteitagsgelaende Reviews & Ratings
Excellent museum focusing on the Nazi Party rallies held in Nuremberg. Located in the partially built Nazi Party congress hall (it gives a good impression of the size the full building would have been). The exhibits are very well presented and the audio guide presents a good description of the exhibits. One highlight was the film clip and technical information about Leni Riefenstahl's movie Triumph of the Will, how it was filmed, what it was designed to show. Our visit was longer than I expected because the museum was so interesting. After visiting you can walk through what's left of the rally grounds, it gives you a sense of scale.
Spent couple of hours there and it totally worth it. What ever the reality was, but this place tells a story worth hearing. If you are a student, your ticket will only cost 1,5 euro.
Depressing, but great exhibit on how the Third Reich came to power, their relationship with Nürnberg, and the architecture and plans for the rally grounds. Very well presented, the exhibit pierces through the congress hall in a straight line (which you walk on the way out) from the inner courtyard, now a parking lot, to the entrance. Not a lot of places to sit inside, and lots of walking on concrete floors. Most of the museum is fairly dimly lit, with back lit exhibits and displays. The lighting really highlights the brick, stone, and metalwork of the incomplete structure.
Fantastic place to learn about this time in history. Coverage from all angles is presented, and audio guides are provided free of charge for admittance. Being a student, it only cost me €1,50 to get inside and it was well worth it. Great place especially for foreign tourists.
Words cannot describe, Germans make it a point never to forget what occurred. Highly recommend the audio tour. Extremely sobering and important. If you have time, I recommend walking over to Zeppelin Field where many rallies were held and the famous detonation of the German seal above the grandstand. It's a 15 minute walk from the museum around the lake. I, myself, could not bring myself to stand anywhere near where Hilter gave his speeches but it's a powerful place that induces reflection and sorrow.
