loot is thought to have included gold bullion, some of which
came from concentration camps.
Hitler and his evil empire are known to pillaged gold,
jewels and other treasures such as priceless artwork as they stormed across Europe and Russia.
It is believed it was stashed with the intention of
the Nazis to collect it and potentially fund the resurgence of a new
And despite some of this being recovered, much of it
remains lost - with speculative figures of its value range from several
million to up to £20billion.
With this tantalising promise of fame and fortune, real life Indiana Jones treasure seekers have sought to uncover the hidden locations for decades.
Many believe the motherload is still out there, and
these dreams were inflamed last year by the discovery of a diary
allegedly written by an SS officer using the pseudonym “Michaelis".
It laid out a plan outlined by by SS boss Heinrich Himmler to hide stolen European treasure in the dying days of the war - although the authenticity of the diary has not been verified.
So with renewed passion, the gold rush for the hidden
Nazi treasure is on once again - and The Sun Online can now reveal some
of the locations believed to be hiding Hitler's fortune.
Treasure hunters are hoping to dig up 48 crates of gold at a palace in Minkowskie, Poland.
One team of treasure hunters are hoping to dig up 48
crates of gold worth nearly half a billion pounds at a Polish palace
used by SS henchmen.
The Silesian Bridge foundation, a non-for-profit body
set up to find Nazi loot, are seeking to uncovered 10 tonnes of gold
believed to have come from the Reichsbank and from a Polish police
The group is basing their search off an entry by
Michaelis from March 12, 1945, discussing the stash at a mansion in
Minkowskie, southern Poland - and they are hoping to unearth the
treasure next week.
It is hoped there could be up to 48 chests of gold
worth up to £500million could be hidden at the palace, which was used a
brothel by the SS.
A well at the 16th century Hochberg Palace in southern Poland is believed to contain billions of euros of gold
HOCHBERG PALACE, ROZTOKA, POLAND
Michaelis’ entries also name an abandoned well nearly
200 feet (60 metres) below the 16th-century Hochberg Palace in Roztoka,
The gold at the bottom of the well is thought to also
have come from the Reichsbank in the Polish town of Breslau (now
Wrocław) and is estimated to be worth billions of euros, Polish news
channel TFN reported.
The palace lies in Lower Silesia, an area in Poland well known as the location for
Nazi goods stolen from wealthy Jewish families, and art looted from museums and galleries.
The area is riddled with caves, mines and tunnels, "as
well as castles and palaces with cavernous dungeons," which offered the
Nazis plenty of hiding places for even very large works of art,
according to the polish minister of culture and national heritage.
The Amber Room is
thought to be the crown jewel of missing Nazi treasures
HARTENSTEIN HILLS, DRESDEN, GERMANY
In 2017, a group of amateur sleuths claimed they had
found the missing Amber Room of the Russian Tsars inside a cave in the
Hartenstein hills near Dresden, Germany.
The Amber Room is considered the crown jewel of the missing Nazi treasure haul after it was stolen from Catherine Palace near St Petersburg.
Before its loss, it was considered an "Eight Wonder of
the World" - bedecked with amber panels, gold leaf, gemstones and
ornate statues when it was built in 1701.
Homeopath Leonhard Blume, 73, scientist Günter
Eckardt, 67, and georadar specialist Peter Lohr, 71, used specialist
radar imaging to detect what appeared to be an underground bunker and
The trio believe the room had been used as a hideout
by Nazi officers, and may be the resting place of the Amber Room.
- 76-year-old Hans Glueck believed £500m of Nazi loot
is hidden in a Bavarian forest based on a treasure map he found
in an old box.
In the same year, 76-year-old Hans Glueck pinpointed a possible stash worth £500million in a Bavarian wood.
He spent 20 years hunting the haul, and believes it is full of
diamonds, artworks and rare stamps - much of which was looted from Jews by the Nazis during the
Unfortunately, Glueck has been unable to excavate the
treasure due to a falling out with the landowner, whose permission he
needs to extract it.
Glueck used a map handed down by a senior Nazi in

gold train" is supposedly hidden underground in Walbrzych, Poland.

The small Polish town of Walbrzych is said to be the
resting place of a train filled with treasure worth around a billion
pounds, according to sources in 2015.
After consulting historians, the town’s authorities believe a fortune in
gold, paintings and precious gems lies aboard a 330ft-long set of carriages hidden underground.
The Nazis left nothing to chance and are believed to have rigged the train with explosives and nerve gas.
£100m of gold is believed to have sunk off Iceland on the SS Minden
WRECKS OF SS MINDEN & WILHELM GUSTLOFF
UK-based Advanced Marine Services claimed it found
four tonnes of gold from South American banks in the post room of the SS
Minden, which sank in 1939.
The gold, thought to be worth £100million, was
believed to be on board the ship and headed to Germany when the boat
sank 120 miles southeast of Iceland on September 24, 1939.
Minden’s captain scuttled his ship on orders from Adolf Hitler after it was spotted by British cruisers.
Meanwhile, another theory claims the Nazi gold may be hiding in the wreck of the MV Wilhelm Gustloff.
It has been speculated some £100million worth of gold bars and parts of the Amber Room could have gone down with the ship when it was sunk by the Soviets.
The vessel now has international war grave status
after 9,400 died when it went down, which means no-one can dive within
50 metres of the wreck. [Without special permissions]

The Third Reich is believed to have smuggled millions
of pounds worth of gold to Argentina in the last days of the war as the
Nazis sought to flee.
German U-boats alleged transported loot from the dying
Nazi regime to Patagonia, in Argentina, according to documentary
2004 film Oro Nazi En Agrentina (Nazi Gold In
Argentina) claimed that Swiss banks, Roman Catholic bishops and
Argentine politicians helped to plunder hundreds of millions of dollars
in Hitler's treasures.
Argentina is at the centre of many myths about the
final days of the Reich, with it know that many high profile Nazis
sought to flee across the Atlantic.
The Sun Online previously revealed how spy files held in the archives of the
CIA and the FBI show how the US and
UK hunted Hitler for ten years after the end of the war, with many "sightings" in South America.
Secret documents revealed investigations into claims
Hitler had a body double, U-boat sightings in Argentina, and claims that
Adolf was photographed alive in Colombia.

to prepare for his Fourth Reich, New World Order. Where
