Site of Hitler’s Bunker

Historic Site in Historic Mitte

Berlin was burning and Soviet tanks advancing relentlessly when Adolf Hitler killed himself on 30 April 1945, alongside Eva Braun, his long-time female companion, hours after their marriage. Today, a parking lot covers the site, revealing its dark history only via an information panel with a diagram of the vast bunker network, construction data and the site’s post-WWII history.

The interior was blown up and sealed off by the Soviets in 1947. The 2004 movie The Downfall vividly chronicles Hitler’s last days in the Führerbunker.
