The Berlin Underworlds' tour of the former bunker at Gesundbrunnen is a must-do when in Berlin. The guide was knowledgeable and showed us how the bunker was utilized during the war. Lots of interesting facts about the bunker were presented.

Half the importance of doing a tour is having a guide that really engages you. They need to make you feel, understand and appreciate what happened in the history they are teaching or showing you. I can not thank Stephanie enough for her ability to do just this. Monuments, bunkers are just that unless you are hearing the story behind... More

Other tours cover Berlins historical pneumatic post system or escape tunnels under the Berlin wall. You don't need to be a history buff to understand and enjoy their tours. The... More

Amazing and not in all the guide books - an immersion into the world of the civilian bunker full of interest. NOTE though, if you are travelling with kids, under 7's are no allowed - not because of the history, but insurance. We had a 9 and 11 year old on the tour and they raved about it!. Note also... More

We did the WWII underground bunker tour, and it was very interesting. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, and I learned a lot, although he spoke very quickly, so non-native English speakers may struggle a bit. I would definitely recommend the tour itself, as there aren't many opportunities to explore the underground of major cities. However, booking a tour was... More

I took the WWII Shelter Tour with Tristan. I was at awe at his way of presenting history - the tour was simply excellent. His vivid way of explaining was very engaging, he almost made me cry. A week later I took Tour M which talks about ways of how people were escaping East Berlin. Again, a great guide, a... More

We did the WW2 underground bunker your which was situated right underneath the Gesundbrunnen U-Bahn Station. Our tour guide through the bunker was Stephanie. She was such a friendly person and made you feel part of the tour at all times, and was always ready for a laugh and some fun. She was very entertaining and made the tour so... More

I took the WW2 Shelter tour. Well worth the time. Informative, lots to see, and a fascinating experience being in the shelter and ocnsidering what conditions were like for the local community. The guide was excellent. Some reviewers suggest saving this for a rainy day... I'd say it was well worth a visit anytime. I arrived early as suggested to... More

A very informative and exciting experience; highly recommended! We were led around the air raid shelters situated underneath the railway-tracks, by a very professional guide named Sean. There is not just the shelters, however. There are items on display underground as well, and the history of the items and of the everyday life and struggle of the civilians was narrated... More
