Third Reich magazines promoting tourism in Nazi Germany

With the construction of the Reichsautobahn of Adolf Hitler under the direction of Dr. Ing. Fritz Todt during the 1930s, the foreign and domestic travel industries in Germany flourished. The oversized monthly travel, traffic and scenery magazine Deutschland (Germany) circulated in the professional travel and hospitality industries. Each German language issue had a gorgeous full-color cover and was absolutely stuffed with in-depth photo feature articles on German travel destinations and German celebrations. Naturally, each issue also contained splendid ads from companies with a product or service to sell to those involved in travel within Germany.
