Its history is not without its dark chapters, and those interested in the legacy of the Second World War will find a trip to Munich fascinating. Adolf Hitler described the city as the 'beginning' of his political activity, concentrating himself and his supporters here in 1923 to stage the Beer Hall Putsch, with the Nazi Party's first concentration camp arriving in Dachau on the city's outskirts. Munich, like many German cities, has tried its upmost to reinvent itself, whilst acknowledging its role in this world-changing war.
