The 12 years that the Nazis ruled Germany left an indelible mark on Berlin. On this tour you will discover the impact the Nazis had on the city as you head to different locations, including the dramatic Olympic Stadium, site of the controversial 1936 games.

Starting at Potsdamer Platz we will go to the Bendlerblock, the memorial to the German Resistance, where we will talk about the various resistance groups, such as the one organized by Claus von Stauffenberg who was executed in the inner courtyard, after a failed assassination attempt on Adolf Hitler.
