” accompanied by large, clear photographs of them: the Feldherrnhalle
, Braunes Haus
, Königsplatz, the Ehrentempel
or Honor Temple for the fallen martyrs of the 1923 Putsch
, as well as SS and SA formations, and more.

: museums, churches, theaters, the famous Glockenspiel
on the Marienplatz, the Hofbräuhaus beer hall, Oktoberfest, shopping, the zoo, Schloss Nymphenburg, etc. Opening days and hours are listed.

, Schloss Herrenchiemsee, Berchtesgaden
, the Konigssee, the Zugspitze, Bad Tölz, people dressed in folklore outfits, Alpine scenery of the Allgäu and of course, Garmisch-Partenkirchen
and its Olympic
facilities (Rudolf Hess on skies!)

The book is undated but was probably published around 1938, based on pictures of Riem Airport, Autobahn
construction, etc. The internal pages are in very good condition, the cover shows considerable wear (see photo at the top of this web page).
