Start your private half-day historical Third Reich walking tour at Berlin's Reichstag and see the most important places of the Third Reich in the city center. You get a great overview of the most important buildings and their function in the past and meaning in the present. Your guide will explain all the historical facts.
Your tour will start at the Reichstag, after your hotel pickup from central Berlin. Learn about the Reichstag fire and the consequences in 1933 for the German democracy. Pass the Soviet War Memorial and walk along the East-West axis to the Brandenburg Gate and Pariser Platz.
Your guide will also show you the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe and the place of the former “Führerbunker,” where Hitler spent his last weeks. You will also see the Nazi ministries, such as Goebbels’ Propaganda Ministry, Goering’s Ministry of Aviation and Hitler's Chancellery.
Your next stop is Checkpoint Charlie, where you will see the torture cellars left over from the headquarters of SS and Gestapo and then the Clou, the entertainment palace where Hitler held his first speech in Berlin and where Jews and opponents were later gathered for deportation.
Afterwards you are on to the former Imperial Bank, with its massive and forceful Nazi-facade. Continue on to Humboldt University, where 20,000 books written by opponents of the regime were burned. Take a closer look at the Neue Wache next, as well as the Lustgarten on Museum Island. Listen to your guide explaining the fatal art policies of the Third Reich, before finishing up at the Jewish synagogue that, although burned in 1938, was partly saved by a courageous policeman and the fire brigade.
The most important sites visited include the Reichstag, Soviet War Memorial, Brandenburg Gate, Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, former Führerbunker, Goebbels’ Propaganda Ministry, Goering’s Ministry of Aviation, Hitler's Chancellery and more.
