While Braunau looks like the set of a historic film, Mahnstein is situated in front of the house Adolf Hitler was born. There is nothing more to be said about it, any other than that the place reportedly has been a favourite of right-wing and...More

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

Walking distance from the Inn river. On the left side of Salzburger Vorstadt at the second quarter after "Torturm" (Gate tower) you can find that stone. Hope the Stone and the house will be saved for the next generations. It's vital to remember History of...More

Okay, there's not a lot to see, all there is is a huge stone saying something in another language. But this exact spot is where the most infamous person ever was born, if you're nearby and a history geek you just have to visit. Lovely...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
