Documentation Centre Nazi Party Rally Grounds: In the Third Reich Nuremberg was the "City of the Nazi Party Rallies". The north wing of the unfinished Congress Hall on the former Nazi Party Rally grounds, designed by the National Socialists to accommodate 50,000 people, is now occupied by the Documentation Centre Nazi Party Rally Grounds.

The permanent exhibition "Fascination and Terror" deals with the causes, contexts and consequences of the National Socialist tyranny within an exhibition space of 1,300 sqm. The focus of the 19 chronologically arranged exhibition areas is the history of the Nazi Party Rallies, which as mass gatherings were used by NS propaganda for staging the "national community".

The exhibition continues outside, with large panels providing supplementary information on the history of each venue along the Nazi Party Rally Grounds, which today still cover approximately 4 sqkm. 

Regular special exhibitions are held in the Documentation Centre Nazi Party Rally Grounds. The Educational Forum offers numerous study programs for school classes and youth groups as well as adult groups, providing in-depth insights into various topics of special interest.
