Investigate the infamous rise of the Nazis during this 4-hour walking tour of the Third Reich’s key sites in Berlin. Meet your guide at Hackescher Markt S-Bahn station and hear the history behind Adolf Hitler and 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.

Travel to Anhalter Bahnhof, where many of Berlin’s Jewish residents were deported, before walking to Heinrich Himmler’s SS and Gestapo headquarters on former Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse. Once considered the most chilling address in all of Germany, this is now home to the Topography of Terror museum.

From here, visit Herman Göring’s Ministry of Aviation, as your guide discusses the consequences of the Third Reich on the Jewish, Sinti, and Roma populations.

Your tour will finish in front of Germany’s impressive parliament building, the Reichstag. This is where the Nazis came to power in 1933, and were defeated in the Battle of Berlin in 1945 in the last days of WWII.

I think he spent too much time discussing architecture than what was happening during the 3rd Reich. Not terrible, but not awesome either.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Hi Philip, thank you for your review. Architecture is a big part of the Third Reich and was part of the propaganda and therefore of course a must on the tour. Sorry when you expected something else

Jess was a fabulous guide. He knows so much history and appreciates it and showed us sites of not only the Nazis but also the victims. I completely recommend the experience. He has a passion that some guides don’t have because he loves what he is doing.

Xavier was a great guide - clearly passionate about the subject, and also very, very engaging! The walk itself stops off at some interesting spots, many of which tourists might not usually find, and the four hours absolutely flew by.
