I just went to spit on the bunker - mission accomplished! I'm very glad it is kept totally low key. We went here in August 2019 as part of "Alla Tours" all day tour of Berlin from our cruise ship's one day stop in Warnemunde port. (The tour stopped at the nearby Holocaust memorial and did not encourage us to come here, but they pointed the way for those who were interested.)

Noone expects to see anything - any memorial at Hitlers place of death would only become a shrine for neo-nazis. As it was, we both felt mildly uncomfortable on our own until a large walking tour came along. My interest arose from putting the film "Downfall" into some context and trying to visualise the surrounding Nazi buildings.

Built behind the Reichs Chancellory, the bunker was just that: a bunker and so underground. The site is not worth going out of your way to see, but if you are walking down Wilhlemstrasse, the govt district of the Third Reich, it's worth the side trip just as an oddity. The bunker was so well built that the Soviets blew up what they could and buried the rest. It has never been recovered as a tourist site because of the threat of it becoming a Neo-Nazi attraction. So, consider when you visit that under your feet, Hitler's bunker is moldering away under the ground water. There is nothing really to see above ground. Just a parking lot. But you can still have your picture taken and boast that you stood on the Führerbunker.

If you want to know more about the reign of Hitler and his ultimate demise, this the place to visit, absolutely intriguing and educational. We learnt so much.

The museum also details the holocaust, so be prepared for some upsetting pictures, but displaying in the most respectful manner.

There are many places in Berlin which remind you of World War II but this place was one of my highlights. It was here that horror of war was put to the end. It was here, that the Soviet army tightened its noose on the capital, that Hitler and Eva Braun, his wife of less than 48 hours, committed suicide on April 30, 1945. (It was also here, that Goebbels and his wife poisoned their six children on 1st May). A week later the war in Europe was over.

For more than six decades the bunker lies hidden underneath a parking lot, completely erased from view. In 1947 the Soviets tried to blow up the bunker, but it is said that only the separation walls were damaged.

It wasn’t easy to find it as it located in the yard of residential block of flats. There are no signs leading to it. The location is marked only by a board with detailed information over the events that took place in the area. Apparently, Germans don't want to make Hitler's bunker a place of worship and it is understandable. I was not the only one here, as I expected, there were tourist groups too (obviously taking the Third Reich tour).

Take a minute and look around – the place is surrounded by many things that Hitler hated – block of flats built by the communists, a gay club that stands metres away as well as a Chinese restaurant. The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe is right across the street. As one of the guides jokingly noted – only a synagogue is missing.

It is so quiet here today and it so hard to believe what happened in 1945 and difficult to imagine the existing bunker, the Russians and the Nazis.

Standing on the car park above the bunker and looking around feels quite eerie but it’s worth a visit.

Why give a parking lot an "excellent" rating? Beside spitting on what was (at least for a little while) Hitler's grave, you have to realize that the place where he offed himself is now surrounded by everything he hated! The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe is right across the street, the parking lot covering the bunker serves an apartment block built by the Communist East German government, a gay sauna stands yards away as does a Chinese Restaurant!

George Santayana once wrote "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it". I guess that also means that those too young to have lived the past are also in danger of creating it. How can we remember or learn from something we can't see? It's a sad thing that many of the great nazi installations were demolished and torn down after the war. The "Führerbunker" is one example. Today there's nothing left to see of the bunker. It's buried deep below street level filled with gravel and no entrance. The only thing to see here is a sign explaining what the bunker was like. Many people go to the concentration camps of holocaust to see for themselves the horrors of the past. Some go there to learn about history - others to remember it. I think it's sad that we won't be able to see for ourselves where the horror ended.

Not a lot to see on this site as its been deliberatly kept low key. A parking not now stands above the bunker and only a small information board to let you know what was here previously.

The Fuhrer bunker must be amongst the worlds most unusual and strange tourist attraction? Site of massive historically importance, but for reasons of not encouraging neo Nazi pilgrimage and for playing down the events of the past, a site which is barely marked or advertised. It really is just a car park for an apartment building and all the remains of the bunkers have been sealed, destroyed or removed and all there is to mark the site is a small sign at the corner of the car park.
The site is near the other main sites of the Jewish memorial, Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag etc and must be seen if in the area.
The site is deliberately low key, but unfortunately the events of 1944-1945 and the Battle of Berlin did happen and should be remembered and history not rewritten or brushed aside.

What did I seek this place out?

It's rubbish for 2 reasons - why did I go and when I got there it is exactly as it is described -a children's playground and car park behind some truly unimpressive low rise apartment blocks.

There is so much more to do and see this is just not worth the time and effort.
