Berlin: Third Reich and Cold War Walking Tour

Berlin: Third Reich and Cold War Walking Tour

Gain an in-depth insight into the contemporary history of Berlin on a guided walking tour of historical sights. Choose from a group or private walking tour and discover notable landmarks such as the German House of Parliament, the Soviet War Memorial in Tiergarten, and Checkpoint Charlie. Meet your guide in front of the Brandenburg Gate, the site of many changes in 20th-century Berlin. Learn about the chaotic days of the Second World War and hear how the gate came to be a symbol of reunification in Germany after 1989.  Hear the story of the curious Reichstag Fire of 1933 as you pass the German House of Parliament. Delve deep into the events that took place after the appointment of Hitler as Chancellor of Germany in 1933, and what happened to the building since the fall of the wall in 1989. Continue your tour by heading to the Soviet War Memorial in Tiergarten, where you’ll have the chance to examine some examples of Soviet military hardware. Walk to the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, a poignant dedication to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust. See the site of Hitler’s Bunker and then make your way to Hermann Göring's enormous Ministry of Aviation building at the Detlev-Rohwedder-Haus, which was the site where the GDR (East Germany) was founded in 1949. Then, see the former headquarters of the notorious SS and Gestapo. Contemplate life on both sides of the Berlin Wall while gathering around a 200-meter-long stretch of the former barrier. Despite the wall falling 30 years ago, standing here allows you to absorb the still palpable history of the city. Round off the walk with a stop at Checkpoint Charlie, where your guide will finish the tour with anecdotes about the infamous American versus Soviet tank standoff and the final hours before the wall fell, leading to the reunification of Germany.

Berlin: Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour with Live Commentary

Explore Berlin's top sights on a convenient hop-on hop-off bus ticket. Listen to facinating stories about the city with live commentary.

One of the stops is the historically significant Potsdamer Platz. In the 1930s, it was one of the most public squares in Berlin. After the Second World War, this was no man’s land, where the Berlin Wall divided the city. Today, seeing the vibrant life and the newly erected towers reminiscent of New York’s urban canyons, you will hardly believe that for years there was nothing here other than the Berlin Wall, spring-guns and GDR soldiers. Also, the Legoland Discovery Center is on Potsdamer Platz. From there, continue to Berlin’s other important historical sites. In the Niederkirchner Straße you can find the city parliament, the Martin-Gropius-Bau, a museum with changing exhibitions, the Topography of Terror, which exhibits the history of the Nazis and of the Jews’ suffering under the Nazis, as well as the Ministry of Finance, which was once the Nazi Ministry of Aviation. After the Gendarmenmarkt it’s on to Alexanderplatz and the TV Tower. The stop for these sights is the Neptune Fountain. This used to be the Berlin City Palace. Here you will also have the opportunity to go shopping. The next stop is Karl-Liebknecht-Straße, in front of the Radisson Hotel. From here you can transfer on to a boat if you wish to experience Berlin by boat as well as bus. From here you can also admire the golden dome of the New Synagogue on Oranienburger Straße. The “Hackeschen Höfe” are only a few minutes away. Next you'll go over the glamorous street Unter den Linden to the Museum Island, Bebelplatz, Humboldt University and to the stops Unter den Linden 36 (Friedrichstrasse) at ZDF Capital City Studios and Unter den Linden 74, where one of Berlin’s most important attractions is located: Madame Tussauds Berlin. From here the ride continues to the Brandenburg Gate. On the way you will see the UK, Russia, France and US embassies, followed by the Holocaust Memorial. The stop there is at Platz des 18. März. The road leads on past the Reichstag and the government district. You will soon reach the new Hauptbahnhof. From here you have the world-famous view of the German Chancellery, the Reichstag and – as a special surprise – Berlin’s “Fujiyama”. Finally you will cross Berlin’s ‘green lung’, the Tiergarten. This park is bigger than New York’s Central Park. The tour then brings you past the Congress Hall to the stop at Bellevue Palace, the official residence of the President of Germany. From here you can also see the Siegessäule with the golden Victoria statue at the top.

The bus drove well and safely through the city. The guide presented everything well and seemed motivated - it was fun to listen to him. The tour was very interesting and a complete 2-hour round trip was perfect. I'd be happy to do it again 😊

We did the tour with Paul and it was excellent. He had so many interesting facts and stories, and time just flew by. Would highly recommend. I had visited Berlin several times before and learned lots of new things.

The tour was very interesting and historically instructive about the 3rd reich and the cold war. The only downside was the wind and cold weather.

We really enjoyed the tour, it was informative and we learned a lot about Berlin

Martin was awesome with all his knowledge and experience
