Nuremberg visit

Post by war_dog2 » 12 Feb 2003 20:17

Michael,

I do know that the court room 600 where the nuremberg trials were held is open to visitors, apparently it has changed a bit but still is recognisable. I am unsure however if the prison is open.

I have however found this picture of the main cellblock at nuremberg prison if you are interested.

To everybody it shows some good pictures of the trial Black and white photo's and colour, also for the more morbid people a picture of Goerings body after he killed himself with poison on the eve of his execution in 1946.
Thanks, Eddie.

Those guards that stood outside like they do on that photo, are they there you make sure they don't commit suicide or something?

If so, how did Goering manage?

Nuremberg

Post by JLEES » 13 Feb 2003 00:26

Hello,
I was in Nuremberg last February and visited the actual courtroom. There is a tour of it on weekends only. During the week it is still an actual functioning courtroom. So make plans to see it on Saturday or Sunday. Meanwhile, if you’re in Nuremberg you can stay the Deutscher Hof Hotel. It’s located about three blocks from the main train station and next to the Nuremberg Opera House. This was the hotel Hitler stayed in during the Nuremberg Rallies. After the war they took the main guestroom and divided it into three smaller rooms. If you stay in room 3, 4, or 5, you’ll be in part of his hotel room. Room four will also give you a semi-balcony view. Annually during the Rallies Hitler would make a point of going to the opera the first night. While there you should also see the Zeppelin Field where Speer’s Rally stadium still stands and the Reich Congress Hall that has been turned into an anti-Nazi museum. The Zeppelin Field also has a small museum underneath. Also go into the old part of the city and see the square where Hitler stood the last day of the rally and viewed the final parade. Julius Stretcher’s racist newspaper publishing building is also in Nuremberg, it is now where the regular newspaper is published. There are also a number of other sites to see too. You should do some research first before going. I’d also view the film Triumph of the Will before going to get some ideas. I allotted three days to comfortably see everything while there. You’ll have a great time.

The Prison

I forgot to mention. The prison where the war criminals stayed and the execution area have been torn down. Only the courtroom still exists.

Hi,

I thought it may have been the case that the prison/execution area had gone.

However Nuremberg still has oodles of history

try.

Hi!

Thank you all very much for your help.
I am planning to be in Nuernberg for three days,
so that I can see everything.
I think it 's a shame that the prison doesn 't exists anymore.

Thanx again.

greetings,
Michael.
