The elegant Wilhelmstrasse with its surrounding streets acquired a terrifying reputation during the Third Reich. The Wilhelmplatz, Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels, transformed into an 18th century palace in the sinister Ministry of Propaganda.



On this same square, Hitler built his intimidating New Reichschancellery, very close to the bunker where he committed suicide. Goering built the monumental Air Ministry on Wilhelm Strasse, while Himmler's SS and Gestapo headquarters turned to Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse at the Third Reich's most feared address.

On this walking tour, you will learn about those who fought against the Nazi system of terror, the destruction of Berlin by aerial bombardment, the Soviet Battle of Berlin and the final attack on the Reichstag.
