After an introduction to the exhibition contents the tour brings us to places in the surrounding urban area for which the Nazi regime made plans. The projects for the MuseumsQuartier, Heldenplatz and Ballhausplatz illustrate the transformation of historic urban space, in terms of both content and buildings,
for the Nazi regime’s political presentation of itself. The air-raid shelter at the City Hall is a reference to the built reality from 1942 onwards and recalls the traces of National Socialist rule that today have often been forgotten.
