Historical story


In 1929, still during the period of the Weimar Republic, the city of Nuremberg decided to erect a memorial to the citizens of Nuremberg who fell during the First World War.

The war memorial or Ehrenhalle was built on the outskirts of the city in a large public park. From the coming to power of the Nazi party in 1933, the place was reinterpreted and used as a memorial to the Nazis killed during the failed coup of November 5, 1923.

In the following years, different buildings will be built next to Nuremberg's Eherenhalle for the annual match day celebration, where the most outstanding building was the Zeppelin grandstand.
