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.

    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

    Wouter was fantastic. Very friendly and answered all our questions. The booking accidentally put German and English speakers together and he masterfully switched back and forth between each language to make sure everyone was learning. The sites you see on this would be almost impossible to find on your own, as they are not well marked or destroyed. This tour is a great overview of the war and the Third Reich. My history buffs back home will be jealous.

    We took this walking tour on 17 Feb 2020 and it was absolutely excellent. Our guide Kai was really fantastic. Very knowledgeable and engaging and with perfect spoken English. It is not the most obvious meeting point (most other tours start at the Brandenburg gate) so make sure you plan your way there in advance. We definitely saw key sights that we would have missed if we had attempted a tour unguided, inc the memorial to the night of the broken glass which is hidden away near a children's playground. The stop at the museum was very brief (30 mins) and not enough time to see all we wanted re the exhibits so we went back there (entry free) the next day. Recommend taking a snack with you as it is a long tour. Highly recommend and think this is a must do excursion for anyone visiting Berlin.
