Final Days of World War 2 Walking Tour of Berlin

Final Days of World War 2 Walking Tour of Berlin

Immerse yourself in the final moments of World War II as you relive the gripping battles and heroic struggles that took place in Berlin to end the multiyear reign of terror of the Third Reich. History lovers are sure to enjoy this deep dive into the personalities and places that defined the final fight to end the Nazi regime.
Meet your guide in the morning near Zoologischer Garten train station, continuing on an exploration of a series of key locations from the years of the Third Reich and the final Battle of Berlin in 1945. Visit the headquarters of the Luftwaffe, Germany’s feared air force, which coordinated the Battle of Britain, and check out the Ministry of Propaganda, where Joseph Goebbels composed many of his most infamous speeches.
Retrace the route of the final Soviet assault on the city, eventually reaching the Reichstag. Then visit the Soviet War Memorial, where many of the army’s soldiers are buried. You’ll also stop at the home of Hitler’s New Reich Chancellery, the headquarters of the Nazi government, and view the location of Hitler’s former bunker, along with his last days and suicide there in April 1945.
As you walk, you’ll also hear about the resistance movement that opposed Nazi rule, including the group’s leaders, Henning von Tresckow, Hans Oster and Claude von Stauffenberg. This will offer a convenient opportunity for your guide to share insights into daily life for citizens under the Nazis, and talk about the group’s dramatic rise to power. This includes details of Hitler’s Lebensraum policy, a doctrine which contributed to the Holocaust, and created the militaristic philosophy that led to the war.

Barnaby is amazing and made this tour something I will never forget. If you are interested in WWII history, this tour is an absolute must. So rich and difficult a subject but Barnaby made it palatable and fascinating instead of gruesome and depressing. I can't say enough about what a fantastic tour this was. A trip highlight.

Our tour guide, Barnaby, was off the charts-- EXCELLENT. The tour was approximately 4 hours in duration, but every minute of it was absolutely impeccably orated, and transfixing. Very informative, and grippingly anecdotal as well as full of facts and statistics. I would highly recommend it.
