Hitler in Berlin 1936
Hitler, the Nazis and the Second World War
We all know it happened in Berlin but WHERE? Street names have changed, many buildings have gone – but the nerve center of the Third Reich was all located in one part of Berlin which is best covered in this walking tour.
See what is left of the "1000 year Reich" today: Goebbels' Propaganda Ministry; Goering’s Air Ministry (Luftwaffe Headquarters); the remains of Himmler’s SS and Gestapo (secret police) Headquarters: "Topography of Terror".
Find out where Speer built the huge New Reichschancellery for Hitler and where the vast People’s Hall would have stood.
Our expert guides address how Hitler schemed his way to power; how some Germans resisted the regime’s barbarity; and how the shadow of its enormous crimes influenced (and continues to influence) post-war Germany.
Finish above the exact position of Hitler’s bunker, where he committed suicide; we strip away the myth surrounding this event and place it in the context of the Battle of Berlin, using the latest historical research.
