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.

    Our guide, Xavier, made it all come alive. Starting in the Jewish neighborhood of Berlin was brilliant because it put faces and names to what before was just a number. Xavier’s knowledge of the subject matter was first rate. He gave us insights to what was happening during the war right in our footsteps. And he gave us a few “extras” along the way since we were a small group - like seeing what actually happened to the highly expensive red marble in Hitler’s office. I would highly recommend this tour especially if you are a history buff like I am.

    This was incredible! Our tour guide (Scott) was super friendly and knowledgeable, and made sure to answer every question in extensive detail. The tour also covers a wide array of historical sites that you were probably planning to visit anyway, so now you can do that + get more out of the experience by understanding the broader context of Fascism.

    It was brilliant. Xavier was so captivating. He was so intelligent. I understood everything he was saying. I was not as interested in this tour as my boyfriend but Xavier had me engrossed the whole time. I didn’t want the tour to end. We also did the Berlin tour with the same company. There was barely any cross over and when there was, Xavier sorted it by going into way more detail. It was so great
