The Nazi era still haunts the present day. We guide you through twelve of the most infamous years of world history.

The year 1933 saw Berlin become the centre of Hitler’s Third Reich. As such, the city lay at the centre of all major Nazi institutions, making it the cradle of Hitler's power that would ultimately shake the world.

Berlin's tolerance towards Jews since the 17th century, as well as its relaxed laws regarding homosexuality during the Weimar Republic, meant that the city transformed from a liberal haven to a site of widespread persecution during the Nazi-era.

The city still bears the scars inflicted by the twelve years that made up the Third Reich, and hosts several memorials to the groups targeted by the Nazis. On your Third Reich tour of Berlin, we recommend you take in the following sites:

  • Reichstag
  • Brandenburg Gate
