Soviets in Berlin – The Final Battle & The Beginning of a New Era (private)

Join us on this special tour in the center of Berlin about the final offensive in WWII. This guided walking tour aims to get an overview about the history of Berlin during World War II and life in the later Soviet Berlin.

We will visit the grounds of the very last battles such as the Reichstag building, where the victory banner was raised, and the location of the former Reich’s Chancellery, next to the today’s Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe.

On our tour you will see two impressive Soviet War Memorials, which are the final resting place for thousands of Soviet soldiers.

From Alexanderplatz, the former center of Socialist East Berlin, we will immerse ourselves in the eastern districts of Berlin.

Finally we go to Karlshorst, where the capitulation was signed in the night from May 8 to May 9, 1945. The German-Russian Museum, with the surrender room, a permanent exhibition with a focus on the German-Soviet War from 1941-1945 and Soviet military equipment in the garden, is the ending point of the tour.
