Nuremberg Germany

I was in Nuremberg, Germany on Saturday 3rd October. Another beautiful day in Germany!

Zeppelin Field was the site of Nazi rallies in Nuremberg. There was a huge swastika on the top of the building, but that was destroyed by American troops at the end of WWII.

Seating area is now over grown with weeds. The white cement box at the top was a bathroom.

That is a soccer field adjacent to Zepplin fields, and pre-dates it.

Palace of Justice – site of WWII Nuremberg Trials

The courtroom is still in use today, and doesn’t look exactly like it did during the trials. They are adding more courtrooms to the other side of the building, and then plan to turn court room 600 into a museum.

Courtroom is the 4 big window of this part of the building

Side by side photos of how the courtroom looked during the Nazi trials and how it looks today. Many differences; cross, seating, 2nd level windows for reports

90% of Old Town was destroyed in WWII. But it looks like these old bridges survived.

It is a lovely city.
