A new book lets readers map their own adventure through Nazi Vienna, experiencing first hand where history was made.
In ‘Exploring Nazi Vienna: Must see locations in Hitler’s occupied city,’ Philip Baumann takes readers on a remarkable journey – with excellent descriptive histories – that you won’t find anywhere else. It is thought to be the first ever such travel guide for Vienna, and comes on the back of his bestselling book “Exploring Nazi Berlin.”
“It’s your passport to a city on the front-line of 20th Century history,” Baumann tells the Travel Gazette. “Whether you want to see the remnants of the terrifying Gestapo headquarters, look at genuine flak towers or stand where Hitler declared the Anschluss in 1938, this is the guide for you.”
Gor history buffs there are plenty of temptation – Where was the Chancellor Dollfuss murdered? Where did locals shelter from allied bombs? Visit the very cafe where and former streets where Hitler lived or explore the famous old Jewish quarter or look where Hitler was rejected by teachers at the famous art academy.
