Enjoy a 360° panorama with a view of the Documentation Center Nazi Party Rally Grounds.
Lobby of the Documentation Center
The architectural concept by Graz architect Günther Domenig is clearly evident in the lobby of the Documentation Center. A glass passage spears its way diagonally through the building for 130 meters (about 425 feet), a permanent disruption of the National Socialists' attempt to display their power in perpendicular stone.
Exhibition space: "The Nazi Party Rallies – Performing a Ritual"
In this space, photos, exhibits and a film made up from original photography give visitors an easy-to-understand view of the ways in which the Nazi Party Rallies in Nuremberg allowed the Nazi regime to present its self-image both domestically and abroad, and how they were intended to embody the "Volksgemeinschaft," or "people’s community," and the mythology surrounding the "Führer."
Interior courtyard of the Congress Hall
As visitors complete their tour of the exhibits, they meet with a view of the Congress Hall's uncompleted interior courtyard. This space was supposed to seat 50,000 people for Party Congresses, under a cantilevered roof with a skylight in the center.
