Berlin Third Reich Tour

Adolf Hitler and the Nazis in Berlin

ABOUT THE Berlin Third Reich Tour

On this 3.5-hour walking tour, an experienced local guide takes you through the heart of Adolf Hitler’s Berlin, and shows you the scars the Nazis’ reign left on the city. See where leading Nazis like Goebbels, Goering, Himmler and Hitler worked, learn about their victims through the memorials scattered through central Berlin, and visit what used to be Berlin’s Jewish Quarter.

 

Your Berlin Third Reich Tour meets in front of the Starbucks at the Brandenburg Gate (S/U-Bahn Brandenburger Tor) and it usually ends at the women’s protest memorial "Rosenstraße" (between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt).

 

The beginning of 12 years of terror

This 3.5-hour tour starts at Berlin’s iconic Brandenburg Gate, through which the Nazis held their victory parade when coming to power in 1933. From there, you’ll go to see the Reichstag – once again the modern-day seat of the German Parliament, but (probably) burnt down by the Nazis to gain total power in 1933.

The Nazi government district, and the memorials to their victims

Your expert local guide will then lead you through Berlin’s memorials to tell you more about some of the Nazis’ victims – Jewish, political, homosexual, Sinti Roma and Soviet. After that, you’ll walk through the Nazi’s former government district, seeing where Hitler’s Chancellory and Himmler’s SS Headquarters once stood, and where Goebbel’s Propaganda Ministry and Goering’s Luftwaffe Headquarters still do.

Strolling through Berlin's former Jewish Quarter

To finish the tour, you’ll visit Berlin’s former Jewish Quarter, and learn more about the Nazi’s despicable treatment of the Jewish people. Stroll past the Old Synagogue, visit the former Jewish cemetery desecrated by the Nazis, learn about the remarkable women's protest, and and hear how the Nazis declared Berlin to be “Jew-free” in 1943.

What is a Select Tour?

 

Select Tours focus on a particular area or district of a city, a certain aspect of its history or culture, or take you outside the city on a day trip. Select Tours are perfect for those who have enjoyed an introduction to the city and wish to delve deeper into the stories the city has to offer. These tours often venture further afield and make use of local public transport.

As with the Free Tour, Select Tours are provided by local freelance guides in partnership with SANDEMANs NEW Europe, who bring their personal flair and expert knowledge to these specifically themed tours. Select tours have a fixed ticket price - we recommend purchasing your ticket in advance, either during a Free Tour or online.
