Tour Details

This tour is a must-do for history buffs and those who want to get a better understanding of what went on in Germany during the rise of Hitler and WWII. Your experience begins as you board an air-conditioned coach for a comfortable, scenic 2.5-hour ride through the East German countryside.

Arrive at the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial on the outskirts of Berlin and meet up with your guide who will give you a brief history of the camp and the atrocities that were committed there. Sachsenhausen or Sachsenhausen-Oranienburg was a Nazi concentration camp in Oranienburg, Germany, used primarily for political prisoners from 1936 to the end of the Third Reich in May 1945.

From there you will head to the city center of Berlin and stop for lunch and a quick break to absorb what you learned so far. Your tour then continues in the government quarter where you will see the German Parliament, the Reichstag the Brandenburg Gate, Pariser Platz, the Tiergarten, and the Memorial to the Murdered Jews. View Hitler's bunker, an air raid shelter where he and Eva Braun were married and later killed themselves as enemy forces were closing in.

Stand in the public square of Potsdamer Platz and touch the remains of the famed Berlin Wall, a concrete barrier that divided East and West Berlin both physically and ideologically for more than 25 years. While here, see Checkpoint Charlie and the former headquarters of the SS and Gestapo.

Continue to Friedrichstrasse, the classic heart of the capital, to visit Gendarmenmarkt, Babel Platz, the book burning square, Unter den Linden, Humboldt University, the Neue Wache, former Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Museum Island and the former Royal Palace of Berlin. If time permits, your guide might be able to take you over to West Berlin to see a few landmarks there such as the Charlottenburg Palaces and the bombed-out Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church.

Sign up now and get ready to immerse yourself in the history of WWII-era Berlin.
