National Socialism tour Berlin: Berlin in the National Socialist era – “Germania”

Day 1: Arrival to Berlin

Arrival and check-in at the hotel in Berlin. You will have some free time to explore the capital city on your own.

Day 2: The former Governmental District and Wannsee

On your sightseeing tour through the former Governmental District in Berlin you will have a look at the former Aviation Ministry of the Reich and the “New Reich Chancellery”. The plan of Adolf Hitler was to create the World Capital Germania and its architect was Albert Speer. You will have a chance to walk through the memorial for the Victims of National Socialism (the Holocaust Memorial). There you can find the information about the persecution and extermination of the Jews in Europe. Our next stop is “Topography of Terror”.  From 1933-1945, the central institutions of the National Socialist persecution and extermination machine had their headquarters at the site of today’s “Topography of Terror” on the Wilhelmstraße and the former Prinz-Albrecht-Straße.

We continue to explore Berlin on the “National Socialism tour Berlin”.  On your way to the Wannsee lakeside you will see the Olympic Stadium and the bell tower. In the afternoon you will reach the lake Wannsee, the place, where the Wannsee Conference took place. Here, on 20 January 1942, the decision to methodically and systematically exterminate the European Jews was made.

Day 3: Visit to the Joseph Goebbels’ and Hermann Göring’s homes

The Reich minister for propaganda Joseph Goebbels wrote there his speeches. He lived there till April 1945 and then moved to the Führer’s bunker in Berlin. You can visit the hunting lodge of Hermann Göring, which was built in 1934. After the WWII there were several GDR guesthouses and it is a hotel.

On the way back to Berlin we will have stop at the Sachsenhausen concentration camp. This concentration camp played a special role in the National Socialism system. It was a training place for the commanders and the security staff of the concentration camps. About 200 000 people were prisoned in Sachsenhausen and about 32 000 prisoners were killed there.

The day starts with a trip to Kühlungsborn. The impressive plenitude of historical buildings and the seaside-resort architecture take you on a time-travel journey through the centuries. Have a walk along the seaside promenade and enjoy the unique flair of the Baltic Sea resort. Continue to Heiligendamm – the first German seaside resort and summer residence of the dukes of Mecklenburg. The village welcomes its guests with its beauty, wideness, waves and fresh air. Our next stop is Bad Doberan. This is a place, where a gem of Northern Germany’s brick Gothic architecture was built. The Doberan Minster features its gold-plated high altar. We continue our trip to the famous German cities Rostock and Warnemünde. Explore more of these cities on a sightseeing tour.
