More than seven decades later, we can still witness the historic moments of World War II by visiting memorial sites and monuments in Berlin. This original tour will take you back to a time when Berlin was the center of Nazi Germany. Discover the events and personalities that changed the course of WWII. Your 2-hour walking tour will begin at the Potsdamer Platz, which was a major target area for air raids and heavy artillery bombardment during the last years of the war. Your Private Guide will help you imagine the demolished city square and its reconstruction on the West and East side of the Berlin Wall. Take a stroll towards the touching Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe and the Memorial to Homosexuals Persecuted Under Nazism to learn about Nazi ideology and the Holocaust. See also the landmark Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag Building, which played a symbolic role in the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany during the Battle of Berlin. At the Republic Square you will also find the Memorial to the Murdered Members of the Reichstag, which commemorates the 96 members of the parliament who died unnaturally (often in concentration camps) between 1933 and 1945. Join the extended 4-hour tour to enhance your experience with a visit to the German-Russian Museum! For your convenience, we provide one-way public transport tickets. Enjoy an extended walking route with a stop at the historic Friedrichstraße station, where you will find the Trains to Life – Trains to Death memorial dedicated to Jewish refugee children, and learn more about the causes and consequences of the war. At the end of the introductory tour with your Private Guide, you will visit the German-Russian Museum and explore its fascinating exhibitions with the help of an audio-guide. See the surrender room where the unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany was decided on 8 May 1945, and learn more about the German-Soviet and German-Russian relations throughout the 20th-century through photographs, posters, and various military objects.
