Explore Berlin under the Third Reich
Hitler’s reign of terror began here in 1933, spread across Europe, and collapsed with the Battle of Berlin in 1945. For 12 years Berlin was the capital of the Third Reich.
On this tour, you get to see the consequences of the ‘Thousand Year Reich’ - including the ‘T4’ euthanasia programme, the killing of hundreds of thousands of Sinti and Roma, and the murder of millions of Jewish victims in the Holocaust.
Visit Berlin’s Jewish district, explore the site of the former SS & Gestapo Headquarters at the Topography of Terror Museum, see the destruction caused by Allied bombing in WWII, and how it affected the Berliners.
You'll learn about the rise to power of the National Socialist Party, how Joseph Goebbels’ propaganda strengthened the party’s grip on the German people, how Albert Speer planned to make Berlin into Germania, capital of the empire of the world, and stand before Hermann Göring’s sprawling Luftwaffe HQ.
The tour ends where it all came to an end: in front of Germany’s parliament, the Reichstag, where Soviet forces were placing their flag above a ruined Berlin whilst the Führer prepared to commit suicide not even 1 km away.
