Cologne is the largest incorporated city along the major traffic routes between Berlin and Paris and therefore played a major role in the Nazi's plans for both the then-current situation and the future of the Reich. While it was heavily destroyed in the war, traces of that period can still be found and visited, which is what we'll do on this tour. I'll also be a walking resource for contextualisation and your questions.
We'll start at the remnants of the original Deutz bridge where we'll discuss acts of open defiance against the Nazis by then-mayor Konrad Adenauer, stroll the old town, visiting places that Adolf Hitler visited and thereby discuss the unusual relationship between Cologne people and the Nazi regime, to finally come to the NS-Dokumentationszentrum and memorial, where we'll freshen up some basics about Nazi history with a local perspective. After a sort-of historical German lunch break, we'll continue to the outskirts and visit the historical airport that was also Hitler's gateway to the city, stroll around a typical neighbourhood with a history of opposition, and visit the house in which the Nazi Reich was born. We'll end near Cologne's urban concentration camp and then settle at a bar to discuss all aspects of the tour.

Because of the special nature of the tour, I rarely pre-schedule. If I have time and you're interested, I'll be happy to schedule according to your plans. Just msg me! :)
The tour can't be provided barrier free. Also, you need to already have some basic knowledge about Germany between 1933 and 1945
