My title refers to the problems that this house poses to the town council. It was rented for a lot of years and used as a workshop for handicapped people - obviously to highlight the rejection of Nazi policies. Thereafter there was a period when...More

Braunau is a nice little Austrian town close to the border on the Inn River. We felt we should take the five minutes to stop and see the house where Adolf Hitler was born. There really isn't much to see but it is a reminder...More

Lovely Austrian town close to the boarder, nice to just walk about and see the historic buildings. This one building is the house where Adolf Hitler was born, not much to see really it is all closed up. There is a rock from Mauthausen outside...More

Braunau is a little town with a nice center, which is a bit down and out. Especially the house in which Adolf Hitler was born is pretty run down. It will be torn down soon. In the meantime everyone who wants to take a picture...More

Pribably the most interesting place in this town. But there is just a stone with plague reminding us of all what happened... The good thing is you can park your car for a while just few steps from the sight. But the house itself is...More

You cannot miss this huge stone within the city of Braunau am Inn, the birthplace of Hitler. The city didn't want to honor Hitler for the numerous murders he had performed through his Nazis. The inscription of the Mahnstein is quite clear, although it is...More

Basically, its a rock with writing placed outside Hitlers birth home. Good message on it though. Easy to find, it's almost in the town center.
