What To Expect

Focusing on the rise and fall of Nazi Berlin, this tour visits the key sites from the darkest chapter of Berlin’s history.

We will discuss how the Nazi seized power and established their brutal dictatorship (visiting the key sites realted to that) and look at how their instruments of terror and suppression (Gestapo and SS) functioned. There will be ample opputunity to learn about Berlin during the war itself and to look at the piecemeal destruction of the Capital of the Third Reich from air and land as the tide of war turned against the Nazi's.

This tour walks through the Government district (Wilhelmstrasse), the nerve centre of the Third Reich. Visiting the former Reich Main Security Office, Headquaters of the SS and Gestapo, the former Luftwaffe HQ, The New Reichs Chancellery and Hitler’s bunker. Whilst the latter is now a “ghost site” we will visit the imposing bunker on Reinhardtstrasse, as well as over-looked sites related to the Battle of Berlin. We will discuss in some depth the Soviet assault on the city at the end of the Second World War and see the many scars that the city still bears. We will also visit several incredible memorials to the victims and victors of the Second World War.
