After visiting “Zeepelinfeld”, we have a short walk to the “Kongresshalle” and visit the museum, it was very informative and is incredibly to dimension all the power he had over this town and the Germans; the museum has a good collection of artifact’s and mementos. If you like history of WWII this is great tour.

We went past the unfinished Congress Hall as we made our way to the rally fields. The structure is enormous and in a sorry state. Must be difficult for the city of Nuremberg to try to figure out what to do with this monstrosity.

Best avoided until they finish renovation work. You only get to look in one temporary room at the moment. Not worth the €6.

You can technically visit this site without visiting the documentation center next door, although it makes the most sense to combine the two. There is no admission charge, and you enter through a gate on the open-end of the arena (east side, closest to the lake), but before you pass by the orchestra hall. It is a pretty modest entrance, but follow the path.

We would recommend visiting here after the documentation center, because you can then imagine how Hitler and the Nazi Party envisioned using this massive complex for their political goals. On its own merits, it's a neat piece of aging architecture, which seems curiously stuck in time.

This is a must see when in the city. I would recommend combining with the museum that is also on the site and allowing 2 to 3 hours. Also worth walking to the zeppelin field close by.

This is one of the few remaining relics left standing of the Nazi rallying grounds. It was never finished and never used, but worth a visit. It's a half finished colosseum like building.

We were able to drive inside the structure and our tour guide actually had his main job office in the museum portion of the building. Unfortunately we did not get to see that portion of the building. Huge structure, built as a meeting place for the Third Reich, and was suppose to hold 800,000 people. It was never finished and in some parts, pretty run down, other parts have been repaired. You need to read up on the history of the building, it is very fasinating.

This spectacular building was supposed to be built for eternity - from there came the choice of materials - and to house rallies of not less than 50000 attendantd. It was designed by Nuremberg architect Ludwig Ruff and his son Franz Ruff. Later Hitler's architect Albert Speer took over. The construction begun in 1935. Today it houses a museum - Dokumentationszentrum

This is one of those places where your history books come to life.

I was able to walk around on a weekday with just my 9 year old and no huge groups of tourists. Lots of history feels and certainly worth seeing in person. I didn't go to the museum, but it has an outlook point facing the interior of the Kongresshalle -pictured.

I would suggest that most Americans keep their discussions of Nazi/Jew/WW2 topics to a minimum - it's not a discussion point of death, winners or losers.
