What to Expect
Explore Germany's history on this tour focusing on Nazi terror. Visit Wilhelmstrasse, the “Topography of Terror” documentation center, and the Sachsenhausen concentration camp.
Travel down Wilhelmstrasse, the government district of the German capital, which was completely rebuilt in just one year. Walk from the Brandenburg Gate towards the “Platz des Volksaufstandes 1953," the path on which Hitler led a huge torchlight procession to take possession of the Reich Chancellery on 30 January 1933.
See the German Ministry for Consumer Protection, where Konrad Adenauer had an official residence and spent more than a month hiding from the Nazis. See the Federal Ministry of Labor, where the Ministry of Propaganda used to be housed.
Visit the monument to Georg Elser, whose planned assassination attempt at the Bürgerbräukeller in Munich failed. The Reich Air Ministry was located at “Platz des Volksaufstandes 1953,“ and it was here that the “pre-Wannsee Conference” on the “Final Solution” was held under the leadership of Göring.
At the “Topography of Terror” documentation center you can learn more about the perpetrators of oppression in the permanent exhibition, from the Gestapo, the SS, and the Reich Security Head Office. You can also see the remnants of the cells at the infamous prison house.
Ride in a VW bus and visit the Sachsenhausen concentration camp in Oranienburg, which played a significant role as a model and training camp because it was close to Berlin and was the official residence of all camp inspectors.
