On this one-hour tour, travel back to when the eyes of the world were on Berlin - a city destroyed, divided, and crawling with spies. Start at the Anhalter Bahnhof, Berlin’s former main train station. Learn how Berlin’s Jews were deported in full view of the locals. Witness the destruction caused by Allied bombing. Stop by a nearby bunker, and find out how Berliners survived the air raids. Explore the ruins of Nazi Germany’s most feared address: the SS and Gestapo Headquarters. Find out how the Nazis terrorized all of Europe. Stroll along the remains of the Berlin Wall, a border that divided families for 28 years. Learn about the daring escape of Heinz Holzapfel. See the Luftwaffe Headquarters, office of Hermann Göring. East Germany was founded after the war, and hear the tragic story of the 1953 anti-Communist uprising. Finish at Checkpoint Charlie, where American and Soviet tanks once pointed their guns at each other. In one hour, you’ll see some of the most significant sites, not just of Berlin, but of the 20th century.
