Što ćete raditi

The tour concentrates on the devastating Battle of Berlin which occurred in April/May 1945. The battle was very much the dramatic conclusion of the entire Second World War in Europe, but also played a huge part in the post-war situation of Berlin, including its division into East and West.

The tour takes you through central Berlin - known as 'Z Sector' during the battle - where we will see many of the major sites and learn what they experienced during the battle, the war in general and the aftermath. Additionally, I will show how the city recovered, changed and became the city that would epitomise the Cold War. The tour largely concentrates on the years from 1939 until the building of the Wall in 1961.

During the tour you will see:

Brandenburg Gate
The Reichstag
The Holocaust Memorial
Luftwaffe HQ
Wilhelmstrasse - the center of the Nazi regime
SS Headquarters
The Fuhrerbunker
Gendarmenmarkt
East German diplomatic quarter
The Berlin Wall

The entire tour will be punctuated with photos taken of Berlin across the period, allowing you to see how the city was devastated, but also how it recovered.

Please provide your own transport to the start location (it is well served by public transport) and please be aware that with larger groups the tour can sometimes finish later. I will keep you updated as we go.

Born in England, I moved to Berlin around 9 years ago. I have always been obsessed with history, eventually studying a BA in History and Politics and a Masters in Strategic Studies. More than anything, I simply love to talk about history, especially regarding my favourite city. I have now been providing tours of Berlin, and Germany in general, for around 4 years. I'm pleased to say I think I've found my calling in life!

In particular I have been running tours based on the climatic Battle of Berlin which took place across the city in 1945 and signaled the end of the war in Europe. In addition, for the past year I have contributed as a researcher to the popular Youtube history channel, the Great War.

Basically, I am a history nerd, and enjoy nothing more than sharing my enthusiasm from guests around the world.

Gdje ćete biti

Central Berlin features in many tourism guides, largely for its plethora of museums, shopping streets and, of course, Brandenburg Gate. However, the whole area - like much of Berlin - is also a historical battlefield, and it is in the streets of central Berlin that the final desperate fights of the Second World War in Europe took place. Once occupied by the victors, it would also then become the frontline in a new Cold War between East and West.

I am usually not inclined to take a tour with a guide. However, in this case, the specificity of the subject matter and Mark's background were enticing. Mark is a great storyteller! His passion for the Battle of Berlin and knowledge about intricate details makes for an enriching and engaging experience. It's like a live podcast - not your average tour highlighting facts that you could look up on your phone. I highly recommend this tour - you'll learn more about a significant part of German history that will inform what you observe in your present-day visit.

I really love Mark's experience. Buildings that we walked by on our trip to Berlin, now have names and history and are in really old photographs. The story was easy for a relative newbie like me to follow, and made me curious to find out more after the trip!

Mark has been an amazing guide! His narrative is captivating. The atmosphere that was created from the start of the tour made us feel very comfortable within the group. If you are into history and want to learn about Berlin's most important spots during the battle of Berlin I definitely recommend taking this tour with Mark.
