    Full description
    Join an informative walking tour to explore the tumultuous history of Berlin during Hitler’s regime. Hear about the rise and fall of the Nazi party, visit memorials for the victims of the Third Reich, and see where Hitler and his henchmen made the decisions that would shake the world. Stand in front of Brandenburg Gate and listen to expert commentary about the last days of the Second World War and how the gate came to be a symbol of division after the war and later reunification in Germany after 1989. Learn about the curious Reichstag Fire of 1933 as you pass the German House of Parliament. Here you’ll delve deep into the key events that took place after the appointment of Hitler as Chancellor of Germany in 1933. Continue over to see artillery-pieces and tanks adorning the Soviet War Memorial in Tiergarten commemorating the Battle of Berlin, which helped liberate the country from Nazism yet claimed over 80,000 Soviet soldiers' lives. From here, move onto the impactful Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, a poignant dedication to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust. Progress onto Hermann Göring's enormous Ministry of Aviation building, which remains as one of the few last standing examples of Third Reich architecture. Next, head to an outdoor and indoor museum complex referred to as the Topography of Terror where the SS and the Gestapo institutions were located. End this tour by seeing the site of the Reich Chancellery and Hitler’s infamous Bunker.
