Prototype grandstand in Achtel[edit]

The small village of Achtel in Hirschbach is the site of a disused sports grandstand constructed as a prototype for part of the planned Deutsches Stadion in Nuremberg, which Hitler had planned as to be used as a venue for all Olympic Games subsequent to a Nazi victory in World War II. It is now in a state of disrepair.[2]
