Our second day in Munich we did a walking tour mostly in the huge pedestrian area of the old town. In the Marienplatz square we saw the ´New Town Hall´ which has the famous clock tower called the Glockenspeil. Munich was the capital of the Nazi movement. Between 1933 and 1945 the swastika flag, the symbol of the Nazi regime of terror flew above the New Town Hall on Munich´s Marienplatz. It was interesting because there is an upcoming election in Germany and while we were on the Marienplatz there were political speeches going on. This was the historic place for many public events for the Nazi party. When the Americans took Munich the New Town Hall was occupied by the American forces.
