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 Clause 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.

It’s there plus a lot more! Awesome musesum allow an hour. NOTE: These museums are currently requiring the N95 paper masks so bring those instead of the blue paper ones we use in the states

Our guide, Jan, gave a great tour. He was well versed in this subject and enthusiastic about sharing it with our small group of 7 people (reduced due to Coronavirus concerns). Also, I was so grateful the tour was not canceled as other tours have been. I highly recommend his tour because the sites are spread out and tucked away in corners, and in some cases, there is very little publicity as to what you are looking at. At the end of the tour, Jan took the time to help me plan a route to see a good-sized piece of the Berlin Wall, a park with lots of explanations in English, less than a mile from my hotel! Thank you Jan!

A thoroughly enjoyable tour with lots of information given throughout. Pip was a great guide and her explanation of the rise and fall of Hitler and the Nazi party was compelling and disturbing at the same time.
