Nazi Germany and World War II in Berlin
If you would like to discover Berlin's darkest period and learn more about Nazi Germany, then this is the tour for you. While much of Berlin was destroyed during World War II, there are still many traces of the Nazi past left to be seen, in addition to many memorials which have been built to remember the victims. We will discuss the conditions which enabled Hitler to come to power, how he took total control of the country, the two wars he waged - both against the Allied powers and against the Jews, the destruction of Berlin during World War II, how the country recovered, and how the past is remembered today.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration
Meeting location: I like to meet my clients in their hotel lobby, and after a short historical introduction, we will head off. If you prefer to meet at a central point downtown, just please let me know!
End location: The ending location is always different, but if you have a specific request, I can certainly make it happen!
Duration: 4 hours
This is a walking tour.
If you prefer to be in a vehicle, I have several excellent contacts and can rent a car and driver for us at an additional cost. Please contact me for more details. It is illegal in Berlin to both drive and guide at the same time, which is why hiring a car and driver is necessary.
Private guide for 4 hours, historical photos to compare Berlin's past and present, and many opportunities for snapshots and questions.
