What was once the place where everyone who was anyone wanted to be seen every September, now sits in ruins in Nuremberg, Germany. Just like the Nazi regime itself, Zepplinfeld was a facade built in haste but never meant to last.

The place of many initial rallies. Not much left the feel of the place is significant. Lots of space to get lots of folks charged up. You may hate Hitler and what he did but he had the ability to move the masses. We all should be aware of the power of these kinds of folks.

In this place the Nazy used to show their power to the nation, with huge military parades. It's very well maintened, next to the Dokumentation Zentrum. The visit is worth for it's historical value, but there is really not much to see besides how big it was, and imagine all the crowd on the benches, watching the military "shows".

Built to showcase a 1,000 Third Reich, the cracks were already visible shortly after it opened in 1936 & today it displays both Albert Speer's vision & the poor quality of some Nazi construction. The National Socialists first began having rallies here in 1933, when Speer constructed a giant wooden eagle and Swastika where the current main platform now stands.... More

Sadly defaced by both grafitti and attempts to erase it from history. However it remains a powerful edifice.

If you've seen Reifenstahl's "Triumph of the Will" or any of the archival films of Hitler addressing those huge torchlit rallies of Nazi party faithful -- this is the place. You can actually stand where he did and try to imagine the feeling of mass devil worship. Well worth a visit.

A must see when in Nuremberg if you are interested in history. The area is in a ruined stage now and not likely to be restored. The sheer size of it amazed me although I have seen old newsreel footage of it. When you visit the museum you will come across it first.

The zeppelinfeld area is a large area which was not fully completed the way 'der fuhrer' wanted to finish it. The large bleachers were completed to have his troops watch as they paraded by. I believe his intent was to have a bridge across the lake to join the colosseum and zeppelinfeld together, but this never was finished before the... More

I visited for this years 'Rock im Park'. Even as it was set up for the festival, it was still an impressive site and a grim reminder of a dark part of European history. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

We visited as part of a city tour when we were on a river cruise. It's chilling when you think what went on here all those years ago when it was used as the nazi rally grounds. The stadium part is now weathered and worn down. If you are in the area it might be worth visiting but don't make... More
