Visit key WW2 sites including Hitler’s Bunker and also discover life behind the Iron Curtain in East Berlin. A truly remarkable tour.
Day 1 – Berlin
Fly from Dublin to Berlin. Meet your Tour Manager on arrival and transfer by executive coach to your hotel for check-in. This afternoon enjoy a walking tour of Berlin covering key WW2 and Soviet places including the Reichstag, Brandenburg Gate, the site of Hitler’s Bunker, Plotzensee Memorial Complex, Stauffenberg Museum and execution place at the Bendlerblock, the site of Gestapo Headquarters, Checkpoint Charlie, Alexanderplatz, and the remains of the Berlin Wall. Continue to your hotel for check-in and overnight.
Day 2 – Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp & Potsdam
Breakfast at your hotel. Visit the evocative Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial and Museum in morning. Sachsenhausen was one of the main concentration camps in Nazi Germany, purposely built in 1936 by the SS. It was the second major camp to be built after Dachau and was intended to set a standard for other concentration camps, both in its design and the treatment of prisoners. In the afternoon we continue onto beautiful Potsdam via Glienick Bridge, known as the Bridge of Spies during the height of the Cold War. Overnight at your hotel.
Day 3 – STASI Headquarters & the Wall Memorial Bernauer Straße
Breakfast at your hotel. Today visit the former STASI Headquarters. Learn first-hand of the harsh regime those in East Germany lived under and discover the massive surveillance apparatus of the GDR’s secret police. Walking along the bare, red-carpeted corridors and looking at the busts of Lenin and Felix Dzerzhinsky, models for both the KGB and Stasi, it all seems part of a distant past, not an era which ended only in 1990. You will also visit the Wall Memorial Bernauer Straße, where you learn all about the former death strip which separated Berlin and we have a close look at the Soviet War Memorial in Treptower Park. Overnight at your hotel.
