Full description
Explore Germany's history on this tour focusing on Nazi terror. Visit Wilhelmstrasse, the “Topography of Terror” documentation center, and the Sachsenhausen Memorial. Travel down Wilhelmstrasse, the government district of the German capital, which was completely rebuilt in just one year. Walk from the Brandenburg Gate towards the “Platz des Volksaufstandes 1953," the path on which Hitler led a huge torchlight procession to take possession of the Reich Chancellery on 30 January 1933. See the German Ministry for Consumer Protection, where Konrad Adenauer had an official residence and spent more than a month hiding from the Nazis. See the Federal Ministry of Labor, where the Ministry of Propaganda used to be housed. Visit the monument to Georg Elser, whose planned assassination attempt at the Bürgerbräukeller in Munich failed. The Reich Air Ministry was located at “Platz des Volksaufstandes 1953,“ and it was here that the “pre-Wannsee Conference” on the “Final Solution” was held under the leadership of Göring. At the “Topography of Terror” documentation center you can learn more about the perpetrators of oppression in the permanent exhibition, from the Gestapo, the SS, and the Reich Security Head Office. You can also see the remnants of the cells at the infamous prison house. Ride in a VW bus and visit the Sachsenhausen Memorial in Oranienburg, which played a significant role as a model and training camp because it was close to Berlin and was the official residence of all camp inspectors.

Since no one else signed up for the tour, my daughter and I had the tour to ourselves. The tour, especially the detailed, well-founded information from the tour guide, impressed us. In addition to the information on the topic, we also learned a lot about the history of Berlin. The tour was totally worth it. But next time we would take something to eat.

Great tour in a friendly atmosphere despite the subject.

Johannes picked us up at our hotel and dropped us off there. Took the time to answer all our questions and surprised us with knowledge and facts about current and old Berlin. Nice man, easy to understand English. Has a schedule to stick to but can easily brake if you think he is going too fast.

Very informative and recommended ...

My daughter and I had a very informative day with Mr. Westerkamp (our guide) in Berlin. The booked tour "Schauplätze des Naziterror" took us from the Brandenburg Gate via Wihelmstrasse. to the documentation center "Topography of Terror". Then we drove on to the Plötzensee memorial, where we made a short stop before we went to Oranienburg to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp. It was a very entertaining tour, thanks to our experienced guide. Thanks again. We will be back.
