Munich: Walking tours of Hitler's favorite city

Visiting tourists can't get enough of Adolf Hitler tours in Munich, the southern German city where the dictator nurtured his Nazi Party and, 10 years before he was elected German chancellor, mounted the 1923 Beer Hall Putsch. The guided walking tours take sightseers to city sites with Adolf Hitler significance which most Munich natives today are no longer aware of, such as the fact that Hitler gave his first public speech upstairs at the world-famous Hofbraeuhaus beer hall in 1918.
"...a lot of them are curious to know how Hitler came to power," Munichwalktours co-owner Ralph Lluenstroth said. Wilma, 60, from Puerto Rico, said: "I have read so much about this, and I just could not comprehend how the Germans could follow a guy like that. After seeing the place, I can understand it better."
