What You Can Expect
Start your trip from the Hackescher Markt S-Bahn station, leaving in either the morning or the afternoon (depending on the option selected). Meet your guide at the station, listening as they share historical details about the biography of Hitler and the rise of his National Socialist Party. These facts will help explain the dramatic period of violence that took hold between 1933 and 1945, resulting in one Germany’s darkest eras.
Journey along the Wilhelmstrasse, an elegant street that gained an infamous reputation under the reign of the Third Reich as the centerpiece of its government offices. Through 1945, this street housed a variety of Third Reich political structures, including the Reich Chancellery.
Continue to Wilhemplatz Square, once home to the Propaganda Ministry of Joseph Goebbels, housed in a converted 18th century palace. Then check out the sprawling Ministry of Aviation, and Heinrich Himmel’s SS and Gestapo headquarters on Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, once considered the most chilling location in all of Germany.
Hear details about the Battle of Berlin, led by the Soviets at the end of World War II, which contributed to mass aerial bombings of the city and a final attack at the Reichstag. Then head to the Führerbunker. This infamous site is today just a parking lot, but at one point it housed the underground command center where Hitler ended his life.
Finish your excursion at the former Gestapo and SS headquarters, where you’ll find the Topography of Terror museum. You’re encouraged to extend your trip with this optional museum entrance, or simply end your visit here.
It was an excellent tour. Our guide Caroline was great company, very informative and passionate about Berlin and what occurred under the Third Reich. However, what really made the difference in this tour were her personal insights, as a German. into how the regime of the time had directly impacted on her family over that time and it was clear that Caroline is still trying to come to terms with how some of her ancestors acted at the time. Very moving and highly recommended.
The tour guide Kevin was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the interesting tour and can recommend it to everyone.

A superb tour with a superb tour guide called Alex. His knowledge was excellent and dealt with some difficult subjects with ease and without bias. We learnt so much in a short time period and even went back to some of the sites later in the day to learn some more! Cant recommend this tour highly enough, many thanks!
