At Berlin Story Bunker, you immerse yourself in the city’s turbulent history in a real bunker from the Second World War.
The tour inside the 6,500-square-metre WWII bunker recreates some of the most infamous events in German history leading up to Hitler’s suicide.
The museum is a frightening reminder of a war that claimed 70 million lives, and is understandably intimidating.
