Infamous Third Reich Sites - Berlin's Darkest History: The darkest chapter in Berlin’s history is one that will never be forgotten, and on this tour we take you to look into the city’s past and discover the leading figures, places and memorials that played a key role in fostering history’s most sombre period in time.
With your expert guide on hand we trace the steps of the people at the top of Nazi regime; those whose critical decisions led to the most destructive actions in history. We learn about how Goebbels convinced a nation on the values of National Socialism at the Propoganda Ministry, how Heinrich Himmler rose through the ranks to become one of Hitler’s right-hand men and one of the most ruthless Nazis at the SS and Gestapo Headquarters, and last but not least, how Hermann Göring reigned over the Luftwaffe’s terror campaign on Europe at the Air Force Ministry.
Most importantly, we visit the many memorials dedicated to the victims of the Third Reich around the city. Finally, your guide takes you to where Adolf Hitler’s final moments took place, as Nazi Germany finally fell to the Allied forces.
