Full description
Start at Berlin's most famous landmark - the Brandenburg Gate, which was used for propaganda marches in the time of National Socialism. From there, walk to the nearby Reichstag — at present, the seat of the Germany Parliament — where the Nazi Party NSDAP and Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933. You then reach the inner-city park of Tiergarten to see soviet T-34 tanks and artillery from World War II at the Soviet War Memorial. Visit the Holocaust Memorial, the memorial to the murdered Jews of Europe. Discover the place where the bunker and the New Reich Chancellery of Adolf Hitler were located. Move on to discover the government district of Berlin at that time. At the Topography of Terror Documentation Center, learn about where the headquarters of the SS, the Secret State Police, the Reich Security Main Office, and the Reich Aviation Ministry were located during World War II. Throughout the tour, hear impressive stories about the German Resistance against the dictatorship.

    The tour was just great! Our tour guide Carlo gave us incredibly interesting reports on the events of that time at the respective locations. He had an enormous amount of background knowledge and explained connections that we had not yet understood. One of the most rewarding tours we have done in recent years !!!!!!! We recommend!!!

    Our guide was great! He brought us closer to the history of Berlin through his well-founded specialist knowledge and led us to the most important places. He also took a lot of time and you had the feeling that he also enjoyed his work. It was a very interesting tour of Berlin.

    Fantastic time visiting all of the key places of the Third Reich, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful when answering questions. He allowed time for pictures to be taken, and gave time to stop at each place to inform us of the history of each location.
