On this tour, our expert guides will lead you in exploring one of the few remaining bunkers, as it was left after the war. There you will learn more about the life of the average Berlin citizen during the air raids that destroyed up to 80% of the city center. Travelling through the twisting passages and rooms, you will also see countless artefacts from the war that have been buried for decades.
