here are some photos from my weekend in Nuremberg
we spent most of our time in the middle of the Old City where we visited the Christmas Market.
|this is the sight that welcomed us when we exited to the train station|
|the Christmas Market was legit.|
|People were everywhere!|
|Had a little braised beef in a gingerbread sauce with some potatoes. Yummy!|
We also got to go visit the site where Hitler was building a Nazi Party Rally Grounds (aka a Nazi City) a little outside of the city of Nuremberg. This site is where all the rallies, marches and speeches took place. Between 1933 and 1938, six large Nazi rallies were held here.
|Hitler was building a Congress Hall to the dimensions of the Coliseum in Rome.|
|This is the inside view. The building was never completed despite having 1,400 workers working non-stop beginning in 1935.|
|Looking across the man made lake to the Congress Hall.|
|The "Grosse Strasse" (The Great Road). A 1.2 mile long and 132 foot wide road meant to be used for a parade road.|
|The Main Tribune of the Zeppelin Field.|
We also got to visit the museum located in the unfinished Congress Hall.
|Aerial view of what it would have looked like if the Nazi Rally Grounds were finished.|
