Day One of our adventure found us in Nuremberg. Home of the Nuremburg Trials, Hitler's Rally Grounds, and the most famous Christmas Market in Germany. We arrived just in time to grab some eggplant cheese and bread from a vendor at the Farmers' Market. Then we explored the HauptMarkt and found a delightful German Restaurant for dinner.
The next morning we were up bright and early and ready to hit the town! Coffees and cake at a local cafe were in order before taking the bus to the Historic Nazi Rally Grounds. What an amazing site! The museum was full of history and pictures showing the Nazi involvement in Germany straight through until the end of the second World War. In the final room of the Museum, video footage from the Nuremburg Trials were playing. As you exited the last room of the museum, you could stand in the middle of the arena that was being built for Nazi Party Rallies. If you stood out on the end of the platform, you were standing in the exact spot that was intended for Hitler during his rallies.
