    The Congress Hall is the largest surviving National Socialist monumental building in Germany and is a listed building. The design with a cantilever roof was designed by the Nuremberg architects Ludwig and Franz Ruff. The hall was planned as a convention center for the NSDAP with space for 50,000 people. Of the planned height of around 70 meters, only 39 were reached.The main part of the building is made of bricks; the façade was clad with large granite slabs "from all parts of the empire". The architecture, especially the outer facade, oriented u. a. at the Coliseum in Rome. The U-shaped building closes on the east side to the Dutzendteich with two head buildings. The foundation stone was laid in 1935, but the building remained unfinished, in particular, it was no longer for roofing. The dimensions of the torso: U-shape outside 240 × 200 m, inside 175 × 155 m, eastern head buildings 280 × 52 ... 70 m. Wikipedia

    With the U-shape, the architects refer to the ancient Marcellus Theater in Rome, which was built at the time of the birth of Christ by order of Emperor Augustus. Yes, the visit is highly recommended.
