About This Berlin Tour
It housed the Diet until 1933, it was set on fire and it was designed by Paul Wallot – “it” could only be the Reichstag Building! One of Berlin’s most famous landmarks, Reichstag holds historical importance because on 11 December, 1941, Adolf Hitler declared war against the United States inside the "diet of the realm". Let this tour enlighten you about the rise of Hitler and take the opportunity to observe parliamentary and government districts from its roof terrace.
You will be exposed to sights of Berlin State Parliament and the Ministry of Aviation, which was used for governmental purposes during Hitler’s reign. The evil leader resided in the Fuhrerbunker during the Nazi regime and he was responsible for significant bloodshed - 11 million lives to be exact.
Approximately six million of these people were Jewish. Victims are honored at the Holocaust Memorial. Installed in 2005, this unique site features a number of memorials dedicated to homosexuals, Euthanasia killings and the murdered Jews of Europe.
Brandenburg Gate is another reminder of Nazi Germany, due to the fact the 18th-century neoclassical structure was used as a symbol of celebration when the Nazi’s climbed to power. Following World War II the city landscape was dust and rubble, but Brandenburg Gate survived and it still stands today.
Little known facts about Adolf
So paranoid was Adolf Hitler that before he consumed his food, he would order food tasters to eat it first, so as to make sure he wasn’t being poisoned! The leader of the Third Reich activities never visited a concentration camp and although his behavior towards people was inhumane, he had a lot of love for animals and was a big fan of Disney. His first love was Stefanie Isak – a Jewish girl.
