Explore Berlin’s dark past on a guided tour of its former Nazi buildings, Soviet war memorials, and Hitler’s bunker. Learn how Hitler rose to power and turned Berlin into an extension of the Nazi machine on this Third Reich half-day walking tour.
What to Expect
Berlin was once the center of the Third Reich, Hitler’s 12-year Nazi Empire, and on this half-day city tour you will visit the places where the Nazi war machine was strongest, from Goebbel’s Propaganda Ministry to Hitler’s Bunker. Get a better understanding of how it was that Hitler solidified his grasp on power in Germany, and caused such destruction around the world.
Begin with a visit to the Luftwaffe Air Force Headquarters. Hermann Goering’s massive base survived the allied bombing and remains one of the best examples of Third Reich architecture in the world. Moving on, head to Josef Goebbel’s Propaganda Ministry. Prior to the war it was the Berlin Press Office, but it was quickly converted into the nerve center of the Nazi propaganda machine. Learn how the Nazis kept control of power once they had taken over the government.
Walk to what was once the most feared address in Nazi Germany, that of the SS and Gestapo. Old Prinz-Albrecht-Straße is also home to one of the only remaining stretches of the Berlin Wall. Go into the basement remains of the two buildings, now converted into an impressive exhibition that documents the Nazis’ rise to power.
Hear about the Battle of Berlin, which claimed more than 80,000 Soviet soldiers' lives, as you visit one of the Soviet Memorials in the city. Commemorating those who helped liberate the country from Nazism, 2 artillery-pieces and 2 tanks now stand silent guard. Finally, stand above the bunker where Hitler ended his life as the Russian army closed in, paving the way for peace in Europe.
