Description

Where better to delve into the depths of Second World War history than in the heart of the German capital? This powerful virtual experience will explore the beginnings of Hitler’s Third Reich and the Nazi rise to power in the 1930s, stopping at key sites including Joseph Goebbels' Propaganda Ministry, previous SS and Gestapo headquarters and the Führerbunker. Pass by the bullet marked walls of the former Nazi Luftwaffe as your guide tells you tales of war-torn Berlin and how an assassination attempt by hero Georg Elser could have changed the course of the history. Immerse yourself as you are virtually transported to the very streets where it happened, learning how one man’s vision became the darkest moment in 20th century Germany.

This is a private live virtual tour. Our professional, local guide will be showing you Berlin’s most fascinating sights in real time, directly from the streets of Berlin. You will be connected via video call and you can then explore the city together. With your experienced guide you will see more than just the Berlin of today, you’ll also get a glimpse back in time because each tour is complemented with an excellent selection of multimedia. You will be shown historic photographs and videos to help with explanations, stories and the historical context of Berlin's incredible and turbulent past. You can’t get any closer to history without a time machine!

The entire tour is designed to be as interactive as you desire. You can ask questions, you can request to go back and look at something again, you have all the freedom and participation of a private walking tour, all from the comfort of your own home.

The video calling software used for the tour is called Zoom. You will need to have it downloaded on your laptop, tablet or cellphone – with a connection to speakers or headphones – in order to participate in the tour.
