Historical story

Reich Bank

The Reich Bank was the most important financial center in Germany during Nazism. Completed by 1939, the building housed millions of gold marks stolen and looted throughout Europe during the years of the regime. The large safes kept thousands of gold bars, which had been obtained from the peoples of Europe. To prevent the stolen metal from being detected, the ingots were marked with the year 1935 to prevent them from being identified.

The building today belongs to the German foreign ministry, which uses the old vaults as archives. The building is closed to public visits in general. It is only accessible during the government open days on the last weekend of August.
