Did a few google searches and came up with Nibelungenhalle Conference Hall. Wondering if this would be right. Anyone translate the back? I got curious when I noticed the Nazi symbols. Thanks for looking!

Mystery Solved

    Fassungsvermögen 10 - 12000 Besucher
    Niberlungenhalle Passau
    Passau is the place and the capacity of the venue is 10 to 12000 visitors. It was a favorite gathering place for far right political events. It was a very controversial and divisive place because of its history. Later it was as a rock venue and garage. It was finally demolished in March 2004.
    It was replaced with a project called the Neue Mitte and Stadtturm.

    "From 1892 until 1894, Adolf Hitler and his family lived in Passau. The city archives mention Hitler being in Passau on four different occasions in the 1920s for speeches.
    During World War II, the town housed three sub-camps of the infamous Mauthausen-Gusen concentration camp: Passau I (Oberilzmühle), Passau II (Waldwerke Passau-Ilzstadt) and Passau III (Jandelsbrunn)."

    I don't think Hitler ever spoke there, it wasn't completed until 1935.

    Hi again.
    This looks like it is during the building programme. Total cost was 1,6 Millionen Reichsmark. Hans Schemm laid the foundation stone on 27 April 1934, the architect was Karl Kiefer. That might give you some names to play with, It tool a year and a half to complete.
