2007 "Southern Patrol"
Scenes of our time in Nürnberg


  
Photo left - inside the forbidden 'Gold Room' where Hitler held receptions for important people.  The gold swastikas are still inlaid in the ceiling.
Photo right - one of the towers on which stood extremely powerful searchlights for the nighttime part of the rallies.

 
Photo left - the door Hitler would come through to begin the speeches at Zeppelnfeld.  Only he was allowed to use this door.
Photo right - the seats in the Zeppelnfeld stadium.

 
Photo left - the parade ground at Zeppelnfeld and we see many of the searchlight platforms.
Photo right - a photo of what the field once looked like.  It is hanging in Hitler's suite of offices, open only to Sharkhunters.

"I had a fantastic time!  My most vivid memory was the interior of the Zeppelnfeld.  It was such a wonderful tour there is nothing we could take out."

Photo right - the special room in City Hall where warring nobles have met for centuries to resolve their differences and to work out treaties.  Adolf Hitler appeared in this room many times to speak.

 
Photo left - the restaurant Zum Güldner Stern where we have our Nürnberger Sausages.  This place opened in 1419!  That is not a mis-print - this restaurant was open more than 70 years before Christopher Columbus set sail for the "New World"!
Photo right is the 'Palace of Justice' and the blue arrow points to the four large windows on the top floor, which is Room 600 where the Nürnberg Trials were held.

"I had a really good time and my most vivid memory was Nürnberg - all of it!  We must keep the 'Gold Room', the Palace of Justice and Obersalzberg in the Patrols".
