Propaganda footage of the 1930s shows Nazi Germany as a rich and prosperous country characterized by a lively social and political life.
Now we can see through those lies and understand not only the destructive power of that dictatorship but also its tragic legacy.
This tour will take you though the landmarks of this dark period, from National Socialism’s early days to Hitler’s rise to power and his fall.
We will start with the German Parliament and continue with the geography of Nazi power in town, including a stop by the deliberately unremarkable plate on the site where Hitler’s bunker was. We will finish with a guided tour of the Topography of Terror, an illuminating documentation center built on the grounds of the destroyed Gestapo headquarters.

German Parliament (Reichstag)
Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe
Memorial to the Sinti and Roma Victims of National Socialism
