This paper deals with Nazi project of the reshaping of big cities, Berlin,Munich and Nuremberg. Hitler had complained about german cities. According to Hitler, german cities were unsystematic and did not have any feature. Hitler want to reshaping of german big cities, for example, Berlin,Munich, and Nuremberg. But it was not until 1937, that Speer as ‘Inspector General of Construction(GBI)’ was officially put in charge of plans for the reshaping of Berlin. Before the Nazi regime performed this project for reshaping of cities,Hitler created in Munich a new center for the NSDAP itself. In the city plans to reshaping was Hitler's interest and love in architecture a crucial element. He thought of architecture as art, and although he worked closely with the architects to whom he gave commissions, he allowed the chosen few a remarkable freedom. After Hitler, the new German cities should be ‘monumental’ and ‘heroic.’ Symbolism, graphic art, and hortatory inscriptions were important characters of Nazi architecture. Hitler wanted to be a great master, who shall immortalize Nazi ideals in stone. Despite the great number of books and political comments on architecture in the Nazi time and there was no typical ‘Nazi’ style. The era of the Third Reich witnessed the building and planning of large government structures,huge stadiums, great open squares, monuments, military buildings and etc. Particularly the plans for reshaping of big cities such as Berlin(Germania),Munich, and Nuremberg were unique but actually these plans remained in a ‘broken’ dream or a “Spielerei mit Bauklötchen” of Hitler.
