Full description
Explore Germany's history on this tour focusing on Nazi terror. Visit Wilhelmstrasse, the “Topography of Terror” documentation center, and the Sachsenhausen Memorial. 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 Memorial 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.
Includes
  • Drive to Oranienburg in an air-conditioned VW bus
  • Guide to Sachsenhausen concentration camp

    Da sich sonst niemand für die Tour anmeldete, hatten wir, meine Tochter und ich, die Führung für uns alleine. Die Tour, insbesondere die ausführliche, fundierte Information des Tourguides hat uns begeistert. Wir haben nebst den Infos zum Thema noch viel Wissenswertes über die Geschichte von Berlin dazu erfahren. Die Tour hat sich rundum gelohnt. Ein nächstes Mal würden wir aber etwas zu essen mitnehmen.

    Prima rondleiding in een gemoedelijke sfeer ondanks het onderwerp.

    Johannes heeft ons opgepikt bij ons hotel en daar ook weer afgezet. Nam rustig de tijd om al onze vragen te beantwoorden en verraste ons met kennis en weetjes over het huidige en oude Berlijn. Aardige man, Engels prima te verstaan. Heeft een planning om zich aan te houden maar is prima te remmen als je vindt dat hij te snel gaat.

    Sehr informativ und empfehlenswert ...

    Meine Tochter und ich hatten einen sehr informativen Tag mit Herrn Westerkamp (unser guide) in Berlin. Die gebuchte Tour "Schauplätze des Naziterrors" führte uns vom Brandenburger Tor über die Wihelmstr. zum Dokumentationszentrum "Topographie des Terrors". Danach fuhren wir weiter zur Gedenkstätte Plötzensee, wo wir einen kleinen Zwischenstop einlegten, bis es dann nach Oranienburg zum Konzentrationslager Sachsenhausen ging. Es war eine sehr kurzweilige Tour, dank unseres erfahrenen Guides. Vielen Dank noch einmal. Wir kommen wieder.
