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.

Our tour and guide were excelent! I can definitely recommend this tour, which includes a few highlights from the present day with a reference to the Nazi period and end of WWII. This tour goes into depth and our guide, an Australian lviing in Berlin for several years, was so knowledgeable. He is a real Berliner with a passion for the city. Thank you again.

This was really more of a general WW2 tour than the "final days." Still a great tour nonetheless. You will need a bus pass, which they will help you purchase if you're not familiar with the bus system. Randall was the best tour guide of the entire trip. His personality and knowledge were outstanding
