The once elegant Wilhelmstrasse and its surrounding streets gained a terrifying reputation during the Third Reich. Until 1945, this major thoroughfare was the center of the government, first of the Kingdom of Prussia and later of the unified German Reich, and housed the Reich Chancellery.
In Wilhelmplatz square, Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels transformed an 18th-century palace into the sinister Propaganda Ministry, which quickly gained control over the news media throughout Germany. Visit the monumental Ministry of Aviation and Heinrich Himmler's SS and Gestapo headquarters, which turned Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse into the most feared address in the Third Reich.
Learn about the Soviet–led battle of Berlin and hear of the devastation caused by aerial bombings, culminating in the final attack on the Reichstag. Then walk over the Führerbunker — today it’s just a parking lot, but beneath your feet lay the underground bunker complex where Hitler committed suicide.
End near the site of the former Gestapo and SS headquarters. Here you'll find the impressive Topography of Terror museum, which you're encouraged to visit after your tour.
