Full description

Learn the secrets of one of the most defining stories of the 20th century as you explore Berlin locations closely tied to Hitler and the Third Reich. During the walking tour, authoritative guides who have made this one of the world's most highly regarded tours on the subject provide a fascinating commentary. Visit the remains of Goering's Air Defence Ministry, where the Luftwaffe coordinated the Battle of Britain. Go to the site of Goebbels' Propaganda Ministry, and see the ruins of Himmler's SS and Gestapo HQs. Take a stroll down the imaginary north-south axis of "Germania," as designed by Albert Speer, from the towering Great Hall to the monumental arch. Visit the site of Hitler's New Reichs Chancellery, the seat of power of Nazi-held Europe, and the exact location of the Führer’s Bunker. Your guide will provide a step-by-step account of Hitler's suicide, the last days spent in the bunker, and the fate of his remains.

Finally, follow the route of the Soviet attack towards the final battlefield of the Reichstag, and stop before the Soviet Memorial, flanked with T34 Tanks and Red Army Howitzers.

Wow, this was probably the best walking tour I have ever been on. So much history and the guide was so knowledgeable. It was three hours and every minute was so interesting. So much to learn or this tour. If you get Eran as your guide, you have really lucked out! Cannot recommended enough.

Grigor is an amazing guide and we learned a lot about the history of Berlin through various perspectives. He also prompted us to form our own conclusions and opinions, which was intellectually stimulating and extremely rewarding. He felt more like a teacher than a guide and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to form a deeper understanding of the history of Berlin. Thank you Grigor for an amazing experience :)

Cian was an outstanding tour guide! A student of History, he was well-spoken, approachable and highly knowledgeable. He also gave us tips on what was a must-see with the time frame we have in Berlin as well as the best place to get some great German food (and beer) in Berlin. My husband and I were highly impressed and felt we got our money’s worth!
