This is a partial list of streets and squares named after Adolf Hitler during the era of Nazi Germany.

The zeal with which German municipal authorities attempted,[citation needed] immediately after the seizure of power, to play their part in the "National Rising" (German: Nationale Erhebung) is shown by the practice of conferring honorary municipal citizenship on Hitler, and even more by naming a street (Straße), a square or place (Platz), a promenade (Anlage), an avenue (Damm, Allee), a stadium (Kampfbahn), or a bridge (Brücke) after the new chancellor. As early as March and April 1933, a wave of renamings swept through Germany's cities. Most of the examples in the list come from this period.

Brazil[edit]

Before 1931, there are records of a street named Rua Adolpho Hitler in the Campo Belo district of Santo Amaro, Brazil — notably at a time when the Nazis had not yet come to power in Germany. Its name was changed in 1931 to Rua Almirante Barroso, but when Santo Amaro was merged into São Paulo the next year, the street was again renamed Rua Gil Eanes, due to a homonymous street in Brás. The street still retains Gil Eanes’s name.[4]

United States[edit]

The planned community German Gardens in Yaphank, New York was built on the former site of Camp Siegfried, which was owned and operated by the pro-Nazi German-American Bund. Until 1941, several streets were named after prominent Nazis, such as Adolph Hitler Street (renamed Park Street), Goering Street (renamed Oak Street), and Goebbels Street (renamed Northside Avenue).[5]
