  • From Warsaw: Private tour of the Wolf's Lair, Hitler's HQ

    1. From Warsaw: Private tour of the Wolf's Lair, Hitler's HQ

    Enjoy the convenience of being picked up from your accommodations in Warsaw. Take a drive deep into the Masurian woods, a beautiful countryside full of forests and lakes. Arrive at the Wolf’s lair and meet your English-speaking guide. Venture deep into the complex of bunkers. The site functioned as its own independent city during the war, complete with its own power plant, water supply, cinema, casino, central telephone-radio, airport and railway station. An 800 hectacre complex was hidden in the forest. Learn about the time that Hitler spent at the Wolf’s Lair. See the room where the failed assassination attempt on Hitler’s life took place. Afterwards, drive back to your accommodations in Warsaw.

    I had the most amazing tour in this trip. Kris, my driver (also the tour agency owner) is wonderful and made my commute easy. He also gave me other insights on other places to visit in Warsaw. Waldemar, my tour guide at Wolfe Laire was wonderful! He was so knowledgeable about the history and the place and was also a great photographer for me along the way. He knew exactly where the best views were to take pictures. The weather and everything were perfect. I didn't want to leave... Though the commute is quite far (4 hours 1 way from Warsaw) but every single minute was so worth it. I am so glad that I visited this place during my stay in Poland. I will DEFINITELY recommend everyone to visit Wolf Laire when in Poland. Poland is so amazing and this is a site you do not want to miss!

  • Gdansk: Private Wolf's Lair Tour

    2. Gdansk: Private Wolf's Lair Tour

    Your private tour for just you and your group begins as you are picked up from any location in Gdansk, Sopot, or Gdynia. Following 3 hours of driving, you'll arrive to Wolf's Lair. The fortress is composed of 80 buildings which were built between 1940-1942, with 50 of them being bunkers. The headquarters had its own electric power generator, railway station, and an air-strip, and quarters for top Nazi officials as well as a casino and cinema were located in the central part of the compound. The whole area was camouflaged, protected by barbed wire and mine fields. Transportation is conducted by deluxe, spacious, and air-conditioned vehicles which are driven by experienced chauffeurs. Throughout your journey to the site and back you will be free to admire the beauty of the Polish countryside.

    It was a good tour led by informative guides. We had one guide who pointed out sites along the three-hour drive from Gdansk and a separate guide who actually showed us around the Wolf's Lair itself. Both were great and seemed happy to answer any questions. The Wolf's Lair itself was interesting. I hadn't realized ahead of time that the Germans destroyed most of the bunkers so they couldn't be used by the Soviets; that means it's a bit more of a ruins tour than a bunker tour, which is interesting in its own way. And of course the historical significance of the site itself is powerful. There are some well-done exhibits as well, including on the Stauffenberg assassination attempt. Worth a visit for the history buffs!

  • 1 Day Tour From Warsaw: Wolf's Lair Hitler's Headquarters

    3. 1 Day Tour From Warsaw: Wolf's Lair Hitler's Headquarters

    Wolf’s Lair was the most important of Hitler’s headquarters hidden in Masuria, a region of Northern Poland famous for its 2,000 lakes. Together with lakes and swamps, it was the perfect place to set up an inaccessible complex of bunkers. The complex, which would become one of several Führer Headquarters located in various parts of occupied Europe, was built for the start of Operation Barbarossa – the invasion of the Soviet Union – in 1941. The top secret, high security site was in the Masurian woods about 8 km from the small East Prussian town of Rastenburg (now Kętrzyn in Poland). Three security zones surrounded the central complex where the Führer’s bunker was located. Despite the security, an assassination attempt against Hitler was made at Wolf’s Lair on 20 July 1944. Unfortunately, the bomb planted by Claus von Stauffenberg in the map room did not kill Hitler (who survived around 35...

    It was a great day out! I will say that the drive from Warsaw and back is long. It seems that going anywhere in Poland takes awhile though. The ride was nice, we had a van for just the 3 of us so we were quite comfortable. There was a little restaurant on site to grab a quick bite if you choose to and the tour of the bunkers was very interesting. I do wish we had more time there but it is definitely hard to do when coming from Warsaw.

  • Warsaw: Private Full-Day Wolf's Lair Tour

    4. Warsaw: Private Full-Day Wolf's Lair Tour

    Wolf’s Lair is a complex of huge and tremendous bunkers, located in a picturesque land full of woods and lakes called Masuria. It is one of the most ravishing regions of Poland and is worth a visit to the breathtaking natural scenery alone. This is a secret complex of multi-story bunkers that are completely hidden from the world which were the witness to some of the most important moments of the Second World War. This is the place where the Operation Barbarossa, the secret plan to invade the Soviet Union, was being led. It is also where the decision to build the extermination camps was taken and was also where the unsuccessful assassination of Hitler took place in July 1944. Despite being blown up during the retreat of Germans in January 1945, Wolf’s Liar is still very impressive. The colossal concrete bunkers spread around the huge area show the military impetus and power of Nazi Germ...

    The Wolf's Lair and its significance as a key location for the conduct of the second world war would have been much more difficult to interpret without our guide, Martin. At the (mostly destroyed) Wolf's Lair, he explained the use each building was put to and the fortification and camoflage measures. We later visited the High Command of the German army, which although empty of the original contents, was not physically destroyed and there were many similarities in the construction with the Wolf's Lair. He is very knowlegeable about the second world war and commented extensively about it and answered all our questions. I consider myself quite knowlegeable, but I still learnt a lot. In addition, we visited an abandoned part-finished lock gate construction, which was planned by the Nazis as part of a string of locks necessary to achieve a navigable connection to the Baltic. Such enormous projects reflect the engineering might of the third Reich and their fantastic organisational skills. Ma

Our trip to Wolf's Lair was wonderful! A few days before, we were contacted and given very helpful and specific details so that we could be prepared. Our driver and guide were prompt, and the day went exactly as expected. We even got to stop for lunch at a fantastic restaurant that our driver, Kristoff, suggested. Definitely recommend this tour for anyone who wants to see Wolf's Lair without all the hassle and stress of planning it!

Chris was a very personable driver. Well organized tour, exciting tour.
