  • The whole Rally Grounds are worth spending several hours walking around, but the Zepplinfeld's are about the most interesting part, giving really good understanding of the true size of what the Nazi's...  more »
  • I had not so great imagined the Zeppelin field. When I arrived there, I was overwhelmed. We were directly about the documentation centre, but the delusions of the past understood I here really. The highlight of our trip to Nürnbegr was historically for me - for all dark past - the Zeppelin field. Unfortunately, I have a point of criticism, which has led to a small point deduction: the information panels are very informative, but I would have prepared something more historical the whole area I desired. Please get this plant as an attachment to think. It is unfortunately something neglected and exposed to decay. Also the loading spline as a "Race track" or football field were somewhat disturbing for me. And cleanliness (beer bottles, bottle caps, perhaps by football fans) - Please take care of the place. And contribute still more to the story (panels, exhibits,...)

  • When I was in the Army in Germany in the mid-70s the field was used for intramural American football tournaments. It’s big enough to host several games simultaneously. I also attended an epic outdoor ...  more »

  • It's a chilling place to visit because of its history. You can stand at the very point Hitler did while delivering his infamous Nuremberg rally speeches. The whole area is in disrepair. Except for the fact NAZI'S overbuilt the place it would have disappeared into itself years ago. I don't know how I feel about it being in such shambles. Should we care more to preserve such places or let them die? If we decide to let them die because of what they stand for why not just level them completely?
  • Somewhere I always wanted to visit, fascination with the madness of Nation and the manipulation of a people. we have all seen the theater and spectacle the Reich used to great effect. However when I finally saw the place in the flesh shall we say I found myself finding it to be a scar on the landscape, set in a beautiful park this massive edifice to a history best forgotten is not pretty. Built on the deaths of others and now listed to never be removed I couldn't help but feel it would have been better to be bulldozed after the war and the land returned to fields. I couldn't quite understand why the Germans had built their new stadiums and concert hall next door to this and even played american football in its ground. To be reminded constantly about something I am sure they would rather forget was a little odd. Perhaps that is the point to never forget, well worth a visit anyway just for the scale, do some homework before you go, visit the documentation centre first.
  • It is Wounderful who wants to know and feeling history. How the powers can grow up and then down it is a fact. We have to learn how the world is and how was it. Many people are killed only for disadvantaged decisions. We need read and thinking about history and how life is changed.
  • Zeppelin Field was an interesting place to see first-hand after seeing pictures in school and in documentary films. I am glad the German people left this monument to stand as a constant reminder of evil in the world so we won't make the same mistake ever again. Comparing these current photos with those in newsreels is fascinating. I wish I could have got off the tour bus and walked around a bit to get a closer perspective.
  • Crazy how big it was. love that people can just walk up and see it and take it all in. Definitely good experience and a good place to visit .
