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.

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.

We were visiting Berlin for a 4 day city trip and the tour with Mark was definitely the highlight of our trip. Although we (as Germans) had some prior knowledge of the history of Berlin, we learned a lot from Mark, regarding world War II and the cold war. You can truely tell that Mark is very passionate about what he is doing. He knows a lot of details and answered all our questions. If you are interested in Berlin's history during world War II and the cold war, you should book this tour! We will definitely book another tour with Mark the next time.

The materials Mark prepared for this trip, and the thoughtfulness he put in to structure the tour, some time allowed for the guest to explore the sites, make this a wonderful and informative tour of Berlin

We had a fantastic time on Mark’s tour. He has a passion for history and is a great storyteller. We are planning to visit Berlin again with my parents and will definitely do another tour with Mark. Would recommend his tour 100%.

Mark knows his stuff and is highly engaging. Our group consisted of 10 first and second year university students, and Mark had them engaged for the full tour. They (and my wife and I) loved the entire experience! Not only does he know the material centered on the Battle of Berlin, he was also very engaging on broader political and war strategy topics. For the full tour he was very professional and made us feel like the centre of his world - he sincerely cared about our experience and the important take-aways. I will absolutely book Mark again for future students tours.
