  • We gave a low score to this privately own museum because we felt like milked cow. First, there was a long line of cars to enter. There were two staffers to count the people in a car, take your money, ...  more »
  • Great walk in the forest of 800 hectares and bunkers. Back to school for a little history on Hitler and the war declaration against mosquitoes!

  • You will certainly get more out of the Wolf's Lair if you understand that Hitler spent a great deal of time here, and world changing decisions were ordered from this location. If you do not have a gui...  more »

  • Historical location, albeit kind of non-essential since nothing of importance actually happened here. It's a rather overwhelming feeling of how much money and resources that got spent just to be blown up at this location. None of the bunkers are accessible, since it's all in pieces, so no actual view of the insides of anything. But overall it's a cool area to visit.
  • Watch for hazards in the building as well as the ground that you walk. There are metal bars, sharp rocks on the grounds, especially concerning during fall with leaves. Bring good shoes, be respectful and come to learn, so history is not repeated.
  • Amazing historical place to visit and walk through history. My group visited and opted to walk around without a tour guide and found that more beneficial to go at our own pace and explore.
  • A place where you learn about history in a different way - it's not a museum. Definitely go with a guide. The guides are very passionate about this place and the WW2, besides the main story they will tell you many interesting facts and curiosities. We went with English-speaking guide Marcin who had great sense of humour :) You will walk 1-2 km across thick forrest between the bunkers of Hitler and his high generals and closest coworkers. Don't expect to see much of the interiors though, the SS blew this place up before leaving. Still, it's an amazing trip into the past.
  • Always a great walk full of history and this time also cats. We got an English speaking guide who walked us through almost all of the area. All over a great tour, however as for me I found it very inappropriate to rant on about current Germany and compare it to "back in the days" as I lived in Germany for most of my life. Give minus from my side about that one. My partner from the UK did not understand some of the tour as the guides English was not the best. Plus I felt like we've been forced to buy a paper tour guide afterwards which got signed by the guide and is full of pictures of himself in different places lol All over it was fun, after the guide dropped the political critics about theEU and Germany. I'm glad the place is kind of open and not you can actually walk into some parts of the bunkers srill. If you go there, also go to Memerki, where the intact bunkers are still standing.
