A History Lesson in Nuremberg

A History Lesson in Nuremberg, Nuremberg, Germany (B)

When in Nuremberg, it’s worth investigating the history of the Nazi Regime and World War II. Just visiting the Documentation Center, Nazi Party Rally Grounds, and the Memorium Nuremberg Trials which includes Courtroom 600 takes an entire winter day!

We began our morning at the Documentation Center or in German Dokumentationszentrum Reichsparteitagsgelände at 10am when the museum opened. The Documentation Center is the last stop on line 8 of the above ground tram. After a little trial and error and lots of typing names, we purchased our transportation tickets for the day at the kiosk by the tracks between the central train station and Old Town. It is necessary to have a credit card with a pin number.

The final stop on line 8 is Doku-Zentrum which means Documentation Center and the tram stops right in front of it. Next to the Documentation Center is Zepplin Field which was the Nazi Party Rally Grounds.
