We started by getting a bit of background in Munich during the war. It was interesting to learn that most of Old Town was destroyed during the war, but it was all rebuilt later to look exactly as it had before. We then went to the Old Botanical Gardens, where we learned a little about Nazi art. The statue above was done by an artist who had an odd obsession with male genitalia. As our guide stated, "there's a reason why there are no famous Nazi artists." We learned about the White Rose, a group of students who formed a Resistance unit to the Nazis by distributing information about the horrors taking place to the Jewish community.
We continued to Königsplatz, which played an important part in Nazi rallies. Also in the area were two identical buildings, one of them the Führerbau, built by the Nazis for offices of top officials including Hitler. We got to go inside and get a glimpse of internal Nazi architecture.
We ended near the center of Old Town Munich and finally at Hofbräuhaus, which held many Nazi events. I've only mentioned a few highlights, but the tour was filled with a very interesting plethora of information that you'll just have to learn when you go on this amazing tour one day soon. Only downside was the incredibly cold weather; I would have begged for an even longer tour if I hadn't felt like death at the end.
