Rise and Fall of the Third Reich

The Landscape of National Socialism and Berlin’s Darkest Chapter

"Berlin would serve as the nerve-centre of Hitler’s regime..."

Although not the birthplace of National Socialism, Berlin would serve as the nerve-centre of Hitler’s regime following the Nazi seizure of power in 1933. Fitting now that the country’s present-day parliament convenes within walking distance of a collection of memorials established for the victims of National Socialism.

"The respectful observation of uncomfortable history..."

The current movement to confront the country’s past is best summarised as a respectful observation of uncomfortable history. Germany’s willingness to openly face these issues providing any serious student of European History the opportunity to study the factors and events that led to the country’s descent into totalitarian madness and genocidal dictatorship.

What is gone of Hitler’s regime lives on through memory; what remains stands as a testament to the necessity of confronting disaster.

Third Reich
Tour Description

There is an undeniable mythology surrounding the Third Reich; National Socialism grips the public imagination the world over. So, too, does it retain its hold on the collective memory of today’s Berliners. And how could it not?

The Second World War irrevocably changed the face of the city; a city which is tied up with Hitler’s plans for world domination like no other.

This tour invites you to discover the history of the Third Reich beyond the obvious mythology and witness the destruction left following the defeat of Hitler’s ‘Thousand Year Empire’.

We will consider the political and architectural ramifications of National Socialism, through the still visible shrapnel damage and remaining Herrschaftsarchitektur. Find out about the courageous Berliners who stood up to totalitarian rule, and honour the memory of those who perished as a result of Nazi persecution.

The length of this tour means that a short snack/coffee break (not included in the tour price) can be integrated into the route – or, if requested, a longer meal break.
