Either myself or my co-host, Sylvia, will be your Airbnb experience guide. Allow us to present & show you historical insights of Germany’s darkest time in history. You'll get to experience the tour from a local's perspectives, who has been studying and working in Berlin for 5 years. In this walking tour, we'll be visiting areas that describe and define that infamous period. Experience the rise and fall of the Nazi regime, their atrocities and the aftermath of WWII, as well. See the Reichstag, the Holocaust memorial, Brandenburg Gate and other areas relevant to the history of this period of time. By the end of this tour, you will get a deeper understanding of Hitler's rise to power and the darkness that covered Germany during the WWII era. We hope to offer you a better and informative understanding on this subject.
Hi! We both have International Relations background and both having worked in a few of the governmental organizations and think tanks. Our passion is European history and culture. We have been living in Berlin for about 5 years now so it has afforded us many insights about Germany and local's perspectives. For a few years, we have been giving World War II tours to many visitors, informing them about the dark period on German history, but also welcoming them to this multicultural city that its known for its beauty and hidden gems.
These are the few places that will be included in the tour: Topography of Terror that used to be the Reich Security Main Office and is now home to an indoor/outdoor museum. We will be standing in front of the Ministry of Air Force for the Nazi and get to understand why this building remains intact since it's construction in the 30s. Last but not least, Hitler's Bunker to discover where he spent his last days before his demise and end of WWII.
Comfortable Walking Shoes
This is a 3-hour walking tour so there will be quite some walking involved. There will be a short break in between for you to grab coffee/beverage and get some rest.
