  • 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,...)

  • Great place to visit for WW2 buffs, historians and those seeking piece. Very thrilling place. Visiting summer early evenings are better. Soak up the surroundings where proud men and women saluted their adored leader in carnival style. Where the mighty military blitzkrieg machine protecting the Reich from evil rolled past. Where great speeches echoed. Stand where once a great man stood and imagine what could have been. Fantastic. Really enjoyed the visit. Obviously deliberately neglected to portray a darker side. Should be returned to it's former glory.
  • Zeppelin Field is one of only two things that the Nazis managed to complete on the rally grounds in Nuremberg. Learn more by taking the Nuremberg WW2 Combo Tour with Nuremberg Tours in English and join the ranks of #HappyTourCustomers
  • Awsome place to visit if your into history
  • Best part of my travel in Germany. Best time to visit- Evening/Night. A good place to spend some quite time and imagine the dark phases of history/past. Open 24x7 and free. Good place to run, skate, yoga, meditation etc.
  • A place of history and reflection. Many of us implore Germany to restore and preserve this remarkable monument for future generations.
