The Nazi party rally grounds covered about 11 square kilometres in the southeast of Nuremberg, Germany. Six Nazi party rallies were held there between 1933 and 1938.

The Zeppelin Grandstand was planned by Hitlers chief architect Albert Speer and was based upon the Pergamon Altar. It was build from 1935 to 1937. The name “Zeppelinfeld” or “Zeppelinwiese” refers to the fact that in August 1909 Ferdinand Graf von Zeppelin landed with one of his airships in this location.
