Hitler's Early Residence in Munich, Munich

Hitler's Early Residence in Munich, Munich

After being discharged from the German Army in March 1920, Hitler returned to Munich and began working full-time for the National Socialist German Workers Party, commonly known as the Nazi Party. Their headquarters were in Munich. Initially, he rented a small bedroom on Thierschstrasse, which he occupied from 1920 to 1929. Later on, he rented an additional room to use as an office. In 1936, the Munich city council installed a plaque on the building, marking the period when Hitler resided there from May 1, 1920, to October 5, 1929. The building still stands today, with Hitler's former room serving as storage space.

In 1929, Hitler moved into a luxurious eight-room apartment on Prinzregentenplatz. This apartment was on the second floor and boasted two kitchens and two bathrooms. Initially, his publisher covered the rent, but a decade later, Hitler personally paid for it in full. Eventually, the entire building came under the ownership of the Nazi Party.

Hitler occasionally used this Munich apartment for significant diplomatic meetings. On September 25, 1937, he held a meeting there with Benito Mussolini, as he attempted to persuade Mussolini to support his plan to annex Austria to Germany. This meeting resulted in the strengthening of their Axis pact. Additionally, on September 30, 1938, Hitler met with British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain in the same apartment following the signing of the Munich Accords, a significant diplomatic event at the time.

Still, when it comes to travel mementos, albeit material they are, memories and experiences are primarily what these little (or not so little) tokens are all about.
