Fuhrerbunker, Berlin

(2/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Though once the site of Fuhrerbunker, the same ground is now a parking lot--and all you can see to indicate its past as the final headquarters of the Third Reich is a small sign explaining the history. Make a small detour off of Wilhelmstrasse to come where Hitler lived out his last days before committing suicide. Though there isn't much to see, many find it a heavy and thought-provoking venture. A memorial to the murdered Jews of Europe stands across the street. By using our Berlin travel itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Fuhrerbunker and other attractions in Berlin.

  • Either have a full bunker museum or don't, but a sign in a car park??? It did give us some insight to the size of the bunker complex, but you feel a bit strange reading a sign in a car park. Almost li...  more »
  • There really isnt a whole lot to see here but for a notice board; for obvious reasons. We stumbled across the spot by accident as it was close to the Jewish Memorial and en route to the Brandenburg Ga...  more »
  • Between Potsdamer Platz and the Brandenburg Gate, leaving behind the hustle and bustle and the modernity of these two famous landmarks, find the typical buildings of late eighties, made of concrete where they lived the most privileged citizens of the German Democratic Republic... and a parking lot. Under that portion of land was once the entrance to the bunker of Hitler, the so-called "Führerbunker" ("the leader bunker"). There are no signs or plates, because there is nothing worth remembering, just an explanatory panel which is vital for those who like me, like diving into the history of a country. This refuge was the center of Government of the Third Reich since January 16, 1945, when Hitler took refuge in the bunker until May 2, 1945, when General Helmuth Weidling, Commander of the Berlin defense area, surrendered to General Chuikov of the Soviet army. Previously, on 30 April, Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun took off their life and they were buried in the garden of the new Reich Chancellery, Berlin surrendered, and the Soviet army occupied all the Government buildings and the bunker. Them Soviet tried without success do exploit the bunker, but is them arranged for destroy all the facilities that is were in the surface. Residential buildings and the parking lot were designed to cover most of the area of the old bunker in the hope that visitors will forget her. So today, there is only a piece of land was the last refuge of Adolf Hitler.

  • Pity how it was built over. I get the German Government didn't want neo-Nazi's or anyone worshiping or attracting attention to the place but, seriously? It's been years since world war and you've said your apologizes so I see no point in trying to hide up this bunker. It would have been a wonderful experience to go inside the bunker and see it personally.
  • This is a parking lot with a sign near an ice cream parlor. This part of Berlin was completely destroyed, listen in on a tour group or quickly continue your walk to the nearby monument dedicated to the Holocaust.
  • ive never been to germany or any other state of australia even but they didnt preserve the bunker ,its a pity they didnt as it would of bought in staggering money,however my view of hitler is very different to that of historians ,I see him basically as a man out for revenge but a man who carries staggering guilt,this is where they say he ended his life but I doubt if he did end it there however i dont think he lived much longer either but i do think he didnt die in berlin anyway but maybe he did nobody can know for sure but in any event the bunker is where he ended as the fuhrer anyway and its worth marking the spot of a man who fooled everyone ,but nonetheless had a shocking life overcome with guilt
  • It's now a Car park but there's a little bit of explanation about what was really here and how they blew it during the reconstruction. It is indicated by a few sign, it takes 15 minutes in total and ironically (or not), it is located right across the museum about the Holocaust. I think it's important to go there, at least for the duty of memory.
  • Before I begin, I would like to say that I give this five stars not because I glorify the actions of Hitler and his followers, but because it is important. One might pass through Berlin, and not ever realise this car park is anything important. But buried deep down, is a bunker. A bunker that has stood relatively untouched for 70 years. I speak of the infamous Führerbunker. It was in this place that Adolf Hitler and his wife Eva Braun committed suicide on April 30, 1945, a few days prior to the surrender of Germany, and thus, the end of the European phase of World War II. While the war would of course continue for many months until the surrender of Japan, this building is effectively where World War II's major phase ended. It is the place of death of one of the most evil men to ever walk this Earth. But most importantly... Something we can never forget... This is a reminder, that no matter what prejudices we might hold, what beliefs, what moral system, what religion, what anything... we must never let those things drive us to another Holocaust. We can not have this happen again. 11 million people died because of one man's ignorance. Despite this being incredibly disgusting, it is important, and hence, because of this importance, I give it five stars.
