  • Duration: 5 Hours (approx.)
  • Product code: PCJHYK

Discover the history of the Third Reich beyond the pulp mythology – follow the path of Hitler’s Machtergriefung (rise to power); learn about the personal tragedies behind the catastrophic events; the dominant personalities within the Nazi party; and the courageous individuals who stood up against totalitarian rule.

Venture into the heart of the ‘Capital of Tyranny’ to explore what remains of Hitler’s grand project, Welthauptstadt Germania (World Capital Germania), and the so-called ‘Thousand Year Reich’.


With over 17 years experience offering unique historical adventures in Berlin and the surrounding area, our tours are educational, entertaining, and unlike any stuffy academic-led tour you’ve been on before. We believe history is best experienced and understood outside the classroom and should be available for everyone interpid enough to travel.


  • the former Nazi government quarter
  • the site of Adolf Hitler’s Führerbunker
  • the German Resistance Museum
  • the Olympic Stadium
  • the Haus der Wannsee Konferenz
  • the Gleis 17 memorial... and much more…


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.

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

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 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.

This Capital of Tyranny tour is an opportunity to address the many aspects of life in the Third Reich, while following the path of Hitler’s Machtergreifung (rise to power). Revisit the catastrophic events; the dominant personalities of the Nazi Party and Adolf Hitler’s inner circle; and consider the acquiescence, either criminal or passive, that allowed National Socialism to flourish and maintain its hold on German society until the end.

From the former Nazi government district and the surviving former ministry buildings to the site of Adolf Hitler’s Führerbunker to discuss his final days. Beyond Berlin’s central Mitte district this tour also ventures west to the Olympic Stadium – site of the 1936 ‘Nazi Games’ and the Gleis 17 Deportation Station memorials before continuing to one of the most important sites in Holocaust history – the Haus der Wannsee Konferenz – where in 1942, Nazi functionaries met and coordinated the ‘Final Solution to the Jewish Question’.
