  • Good and critical exposure to the rise and rise to power of the Nazi party. It is shown what propaganda aim should be achieved with the Nazi party rally grounds. The completed parts of the building give an impression what monumental building was planned here.

  • Museum perfectly organized. Audio guides with detailed description of Nazi history accompanied by a wide selection of photos and videos very interesting. The full path requires at least two hours if you want to listen to all the stages.

  • Terrain and buildings bear witness to Albert Speer of the delusions of grandeur and ambition of builders of Adolf Hitler and the unconditional will to implement his master. In the years from 1933 to 1938, the Nazi party rallies held on the grounds, offering a meticulously inszinierte propaganda show to an audience of millions. This historical "legacy" is the city of Nuremberg already since the end of the second world war faced great challenges. The nearly 20-year-old Dokuzentrum, impresses with its profound and symbolic architecture. The place and the exhibition are so oppressive, so successful I feel the engagement with the site and the history. The exhibition can be visited well alone. On the site you will find meaningful information boards. The terrain is very extensive, sufficient time for the visit should be included (min. 3-4 hours for Dokuzentrum and terrain).

  • This is a very interesting museum and worth the visit. I learned so much about how influential Hitler was to the young people. His speeches and rally had lots of energy. The audio tour is filled of rich and detailed history starting with the rise of Hitler and to the end of the war. If you listen to everything it has to say you'll be in the museum all day!
  • A fantastic museum only €5 to get in including an audio guide in your language, which makes the museum that much more informative. On top of the museum itself there is a route around all the other parts of the rally ground, which you will have learned about in the museum. All in all a very complete package that will take up a whole day.
  • The building is full of History and it has impact. However, the exhibition area didn't have a single written translation in English (we had audio but the picture's subtitles were in German only). The videos were the best explanatory part.
  • Crazy to walk through. To see what the area would have looked like is insane. Audio guide included, lockers for bags for a pfand/deposit. No toilets once you've gone into the museum, so go before! The audio guide can be quite long but the details are fascinating.
  • Everyone needs to visit. The museum exhibits themselves are par for the course but the actual size and ambition of the building once you emerge onto the outdoor viewing platform is incredible.
