Full description
Your tour begins with pickup from your Warsaw accommodation in a Mercedes-Benz vehicle. From there, begin your comfortable transfer to Wolf's Lair. This site was Adolf Hitler's first Eastern Front military headquarters in World War II. The complex, which would become one of several Führer Headquarters in various parts of occupied Europe, was built for the start of Operation Barbarossa. This top-secret, high-security site was in the Masurian woods, about 8 kilometers from the small East Prussian town of Rastenburg (Kętrzyn). Three security zones surrounded the central complex where the Führer's bunker was located. Despite this security, the most notable assassination attempt against Hitler was made at the Wolf's Lair on July 20, 1944. Hitler's Headquarters, like most war locations, was very well camouflaged. The town hidden in the forest consists of 200 buildings in total, including shelters, barracks, 2 airports, a power plant, a railway station, air-conditioning equipment, a water supply, a heating plant, and two teletype panels. A trip to the Wolf's Lair is not just about the physical bunkers - crimes against humanity were also planned there. It was a place where criminal decisions regarding the fate of many European nations were made, using prisoners in the German arms industry and the construction of new concentration camps. There were plans to enlarge the complex, however the works were never completed because of the rapid advance of the Red Army during the Baltic Offensive in Autumn of 1944. On January 25 1945, the Wolf's Lair was blown up and abandoned 48 hours before the arrival of Soviet forces. Visiting this one-in-a-kind place is a truly remarkable experience and allows you to learn more about the history of World War II and Hitler's philosophy. The atmosphere of war is still floating through the air of the ruins, and the whole complex is a perfect example of Hitler's megalomania and entourage.
