Berlin Historical Walks in partnership with the Soviet Gallery presents a unique tour for all you history buffs!
Join us on this exciting exploration of the German-Soviet War of 1941 to 1945.
We’ll start by meeting in a cosy local café to chat about the Second World War in the East, set it into context and discuss the legacy of the war today.
We’ll then move on to a tour of the German Russian Museum, housed in the building where the Germans surrendered to the Soviet Union on May 8, 1945. In addition to seeing the room where the surrender took place and the room from which Marshal Zhukov ruled conquered Germany, we’ll explore the new display dedicated to the war and take a closer look at period posters, artifacts and weapons from both sides in this epochal conflict.
We will then take the S-Bahn a few stops away to explore Treptower Park, the largest Soviet war memorial outside the former Soviet Union. Located in a secluded park, the memorial complex is a slice of the old Soviet Union located in the heart of Berlin and really brings home what the war meant to the Soviet people and what it still means to the Union’s successor states, especially Russia.
We hope you can join us on this unique and rather special event!
