Berlin's Infamous Third Reich Sites Half-Day Walking Tour

Berlin's Infamous Third Reich Sites Walking Tour

Gain new insight into the chilling rise of the Nazis in Germany during this 3-hour walking tour investigating the Third Reich’s key sites in Berlin. You’ll gain a new appreciation for the historical events and sites that contributed to the rise (and fall) of this infamous regime.
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.

My tour guide was Ysanne and she was fantastic! Super friendly and very knowledgeable - I think this company requires their tour guides to have a degree in German history which makes me confident that the information given is accurate. Ysanne willingly answered all questions during the tour and encouraged open discussion at the Jewish memorial which added an emotional element to the experience. A very thorough account of Hitler's rise to power and eventual decline including some interesting facts that I never even knew. Overall, a highly recommended tour if you're visiting Berlin!
