This Free Tour covering Hitler’s Third Reich and their gradual domination of the city and beyond is a truly fascinating account of the terror inflicted as part of an incredibly evil regime. It’s something we all know from history books but it’s when you stand on the concrete where so many atrocities occurred and hear the tales that the significance and horror of this extreme period of history really strikes you. It is a truly valuable free tour and well-worth joining to gain a tangible insight to the Third Reich and their operations in Berlin as well as the lasting effect that so much of this relatively recent history has left on Berlin and on the psyche and collective consciousness of generations of people and we highly recommend it.
In the beginning of the 1930’s a storm began to stir in Germany’s capital. In the years to follow, this once liberal and cosmopolitan city of Berlin fell to the evil hand of Hitler and his Third Reich. Join the only free Third Reich tour in Berlin and discover Hitler’s and his Third Reich rise to power, triumphant reign and turbulent fall. Hear heart-wrenching tales of victims, survivors and tales of heroes erased from history. We’ll show you some of the key institutions of the Nazi Regime, and incredibly touching Jewish memorials commemorating the horrendous 11 million victims of the Holocaust on our approximately 3 hour tour.
This tour includes:
Rise and Fall of Hitler's Nazi Party — New Synagogue — Old Jewish Cemetary — Nuremberg Laws & Final solution — Night of the Broken Glass — Nazi HQs — Otto Weidt Workshop for the Blind — Resistance movements & Assassination attempts on Hitler's life — Trains to Life — Trains to Death — Nazi rallys & propaganda — Holocaust Memorials — Hitler's Germania — Reichs Chancellery & site of Hitler's bunker

Despite the freezing cold, we spent a really interesting day, knowing some famous places in Berlin from a bit other perspective than from guidebooks- thanx, Hexi!

The closest S-Bahn and U-Bahn stations to Lustgarten are Hackescher Markt (lines S5 and S7) and Alexander Platz (lines S5, S7, U2, U5 and U8). Both of them are within 5-10 minutes walking distance from the meeting point.
If you are coming from Hackescher Markt, once you get off the S-Bahn take Burgstrasse, which becomes Spreepromenade situated along the riverbank. Once you see the bridge on your right, cross it and walk to the Berliner Dom. Congratulations, you have arrived to Lustgarten, the square in front of the Old Museum and the Cathedral! Walk to the middle of the square and look for our guides with light-blue Hostelculture T-shirts and umbrellas at the marble bowl.
Coming from Alexanderplatz take Karl-Liebknecht-Straße, pass St. Mary’s Church on the left, towards Museum Island. Cross the bridge and continue to the Berliner Dom. Once at the Dom make a right onto the Lustgarten. Our guides with light blue Hostelculture T-shirts and umbrellas are waiting for you at the marble bowl in the centre.
