What makes this tour special

Travellers are usually humbled by the extreme efforts, honesty and openness of Germans recollections of the Second World War. A visit to Berlin is a reminder to never forget. This tour explores the German culture of memory, while talking about those who lost their lives and were persecuted.  

Learn about the final moments of World War II in Europe. See the bullet holes, shrapnel and Soviet graffiti that cover the Reichstag building. Visit Berlin’s memorials to the victims of war and those persecuted. These include memorials to the Holocaust victims, Albert Einstein, Book Burning, Neue Wache and the Soviet War Monument. Explore the beautiful Tiergarten Park, hear the stories of desperate Berliners who used the park as farmland and for firewood after the war. Next see the majestic Brandenburg Gate, and wander along the historic Unter den Linden Boulevard.
