Warnemunde Shore Excursion - This Berlin tour is for those who are interested in learning about Berlin's WWII history including the locations where many historical events took place. Your guide is a local expert regarding the Third Reich, the Holocaust and WWII.

Your private driver will bring you into Berlin and your city guide joins you at the first stop, the Reichstag building, which is one of the key places to understand the Nazi's rise to power. The impressive 19th century building stands at the beginning and the end of the Third Reich. Here a fire in 1933 allegedly started by a communist became a stepping stone for Hitler۪s seizure of absolute power in Germany. Twelve years later the Red Army's capture of Reichstag marked the apocalyptic end of the Battle of Berlin, which ended World War II in continental Europe.

Next you visit the nearby Soviet War Memorial, a grave monument built in 1945 for the many soldiers who lost their lives capturing Berlin and the Reichstag. From here you can still see the former East-West-Axis, a broad boulevard which was an essential part of Hitler's and Albert Speer's megalomaniac plan to turn Berlin into a World Capital which would have been named Germania.

From Brandenburg Gate you walk to the somber Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. Only a stone's throw away you'll discover the site, where Hitler's bunker was located.

Later you take a trip through the former Nazi government quarter where your guide will deepen your insights into the darkest period of German history. See the propaganda ministry of Goebbels, G̦ring's ministry of aviation and visit the leftovers of one of the most feared addresses of the Third Reich: the headquarter of the Gestapo and SS.

Next you pass by one of the most iconic places of the Cold War, Checkpoint Charlie, and head to lovely Gendarmenmarkt with its beautiful twin churches. In the nearby massive building of the former Imperial Bank the Germans kept stolen gold from their raided enemies of World War II. It is in this square where on the 10th of May 1933 radicalized students of the Berlin University burnt 20,000 books, which they had branded as of Non-German spirit.

Other sites of interest include the Topography of Terror. If time permits you may also visit the neighborhood of Prenzlauer Berg, where the Russians fought their way into the city. If you are interested in a closer look at the most-impressive War Memorial at Treptower Park, please let your guide know at the very beginning of the tour (as we maybe have to skip some other places, though it is worthwhile).


At the end of the day you will be taken back to the pier in Rostock / Warnemunde.
