SHARKHUNTERS International
2016 "Southern Patrol"
Nürnberg
 

 

Nürnberg.......the very name shouts history, history and more history and we begin with a tour of the Party Rally Grounds with our good friends MICHAEL KAISER, Member #6166-LIFE and HOLGER WINEBERGER, Member #7589-LIFE.

There are so many photos from our 2016 Southern Patrol that we felt it best to break the activities into sub-pages otherwise, the load times would be too long.

Click here to join us in this historic place.  We have posted this photo of how the tribunal looked during the 1930's to compare with the way it looks today.

 

 

The Congresshalle was under construction until the war broke out.  When that happened, construction was abandoned but this place was going to be a massive building.

This was quite similar to the Coliseum in Rome but so huge that the Coliseum could fit inside this structure.

Let us continue with a short drive out of Nürnberg to a beautiful castle that is still in the family von Stauffenberg and has been their for centuries.  No, Tom Cruise did not live here and neither did Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg.  During the war years, his uncle Bertold lived here but Claus visited thirty-seven times in just two years preceding the attempt on Hitler's life at Wolfsschanze.  Bertold was subjected to torture by the Gestapo because everyone related to the conspirators or even remotely friendly with them was tortured and a great many hanged......using piano wire.  It was not a pleasant way to die - but this is a beautiful day and we enjoyed this castle.

Click on the photo of Count Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg and ride along with us to this beautiful castle.


 

 

This will make you wonder.........so click on this picture and come with us to the Nürnberg Castle, to a 14th Century tower that is now a museum, to a World War Two air raid tower that is now an incredible museum........and to a very special shop.  If you know anything about the U-Bootwaffe, you must know this item.

Click on the memory of ERICH TOPP, Member #118 and join us in the "Tunnels of Time".
