German & Czech WWII Route

There's nothing strange about traveling along by the darkest sites of our recent past. As Winston Churchill said, "Those that fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it." This tour tells not only of some of the worst crimes against humanity but also how the forces of evil were defeated by the Allies. In this Germany focused itinerary with a little Czech touch, you will learn about the birth and heyday of the Third Reich in Berlin, Munich, and Nuremberg and experience the sorrow of the unjustly and inhumanly sentenced people in the concentration camps of Terezín, Sachsenhausen, and Dachau.

You'll be amazed by the unique story and position of Dresden, how it remained mentally healthy but politically badly influenced and heavily bombed during WWII. There are quite a few iconic sights that you should not miss to get a clear understanding of wartime, its victims, and warriors, such as the Court of Justice of the Nuremberg Trials, the Eagle's Nest in Berchtesgaden, or the Panometer in Dresden. On the way back into Germany from Prague, a city that escaped WWII largely undamaged, you'll be tracing in reverse the route General Patton took and visiting Plzen. This Czech city famous for its beer still celebrates its Liberation Day on May 5th, marking the date Patton's Third Army liberated the city, three full days before the Soviets arrived in Prague. All these sites worth having an intimate chat about with friends along with some great local dishes and beers. You will find our best dining and free-time recommendations on your guest page.

Transportation by train and private transfer, history-themed walking tours, and day trips, centrally located hotels are all included in this educative WWII package. Tell all your history buff friends that JayWay has an itinerary with a Central European focus and hit the road to gain exceptional knowledge on the topic with our expert guides.

In addition to the tours included we can arrange a number of excursions based on your own interests. All of our tours are custom, and this is just a sample meant to give an idea of what our trips are like, and the opportunities our destinations provide.

One of our team members in the region will be available to you leading up to and during your trip to answer any questions and arrange additional local services. You will receive access to your Guest Page, with its information on the best these destinations have to offer, including things to see and do, and other inside tips from restaurant recommendations to tipping advice. Upon your arrival, we will provide you with a local cell phone that you can use to reach your local JayWay contact throughout your trip. In all of our destinations, we offer a variety of memorable 3-5 star accommodation options, including boutique hotels, charming B&Bs, and spacious apartments. With our first-hand experience, we can ensure they are all clean, comfortable, and centrally located, with local ambience.

3 Nights in Berlin

A vibrant cosmopolitan city that’s rich in history and contemporary culture, Berlin is constantly evolving. From the ruins of World War II to the Cold War division of the Berlin wall, Berlin has always managed to rebuild. Germany's largest city, this sprawling (by European standards) metropolis has excellent public transportation, from subways to an official rowboat ferry. You’ll find a little of everything here, from history to high gastronomy, art museums to palaces, and plenty lively bars. The nightlife here is world-class, but there’s more than enough to see during the day. Berlin is made up of distinctive neighborhoods, each with a different character. We recommend several ways of exploring the city, from a Cold War walking tour to a bike tour to see all the must-see sights in a simple and easy way. An exploration of the long and volatile history of Jewish culture in the city is eye-opening as Jewish life in Berlin has been meticulously documented. Many of the city’s art and culture museums offer unforgettable glimpses into history. Potsdam offers the perfect diversion for an afternoon, and Sanssouci Palace, with its well-tended gardens, is a beautiful reminder of the city’s impressive past. The past comes alive in Berlin, but the present is very much alive as well.

Day 1

Day 1 - Arrival in Berlin

Welcome to Berlin! You will be met at the Berlin TXL airport and have transport arranged to your centrally located accommodation.

See the City From Above at Alexanderplatz

Suggestion to explore on your own

One of the liveliest places in Berlin, Alexanderplatz is East Berlin's unofficial main square, with cinemas, restaurants, shops and many other places of interest close by. The EU's second tallest structure (by half a meter), the TV Tower standing here has been Berlin's dominant sight for decades. The express elevator will get you to the observation deck with panoramic views high above the city. You can see and plan your next move at some of the city’s well-known sights, from the Reichstag Parliament building and Brandenburg Gate to the Olympic Stadium or former Tempelhof airport, while enjoying a meal.

Day 2

Day 2 - Your First Full Day in Berlin

Third Reich Group Walking Tour

Third Reich Group Walking Tour

Included in your vacation package price.

Explore sites connected to Berlin's darkest period, learning about the rise and fall of the Third Reich. An expert local guide will point out reminders of the final Soviet attack on the city's core, including the fighting for the Reichstag. You will then visit the site where Hitler's bunker was once located, and many other places connected to the Nazi regime and its horrors, learning about the lives of the city's people, those who aided and resisted the regime, as you go.


Activity Level : Moderate
Duration : 4 hours

Bunkers, Subways, and the Cold War Private Tour

Berlin's Underworlds

Please ask your travel advisor for the cost to add this to your package

Berlin's history stretches out far underground, as many escape tunnels, bunkers, and shelters snake below the city. "Berliner Unterwelten" researches and preserves these monuments, offering tours to help fund its efforts. While most of their tours are in German, they offer several excellent tours in English. While our standard tour with them includes a WWII air raid shelter along with a Cold War bunker, they also offer tours focusing on tunnels beneath the Berlin Wall, or even a massive anti-aircraft tower left over from World War II. Some of these tours are only available on certain days, so ask your JayWay representative for details.


Activity Level : Light
Duration : 1 hour 30 minutes

Day 3

Day 3 - Your Second Full Day in Berlin

Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial Site Group Tour

Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Group Tour

Included in your vacation package price.

Visiting the Sachsenhausen concentration camp will certainly be one of the most emotionally resonant things you do in Berlin. On this six-hour tour, qualified guides will uncover the realities of life and death in the camp.


Activity Level : Moderate
Duration : 6 hours

The Rooms Where it Happened

Suggestion to explore on your own

Beyond Berlin's center are three places where decisions about Europe fate were made. The House of the Wannsee Conference is a powerful commemoration of the Holocaust. In 1942, leading Nazis met there to discuss the "Final Solution" to the "Jewish Question,". Fittingly, Berlin is also home to the free German-Russian Museum, originally the "Museum of the Unconditional Capitulation of Fascist Germany in the Great Fatherland War" (you can guess who did the naming). Finally, a short walk from Berlin's border, you can visit the beautiful Cecilienhof Palace, where the Potsdam Conference was held between Churchill, Truman, and Stalin in July 1945, deciding postwar Europe's destiny.

Day 4

Day 4 - Traveling to Dresden by Train

Discover a very different German city - Dresden. Regular train connections between Berlin and Dresden mean you can choose your departure time and the journey takes under two hours. Your hotel reception will be able to arrange a taxi for you to Berlin's Hauptbahnhof station, much more economically than a transfer service, so we haven’t included that in your package but can do should you wish. Once on the train all you need to do is unwind and watch the German countryside speeding by. Your package includes second class tickets with seat reservations, upgrades to first are available but are much more expensive.

1 Night in Dresden

Dresden has had one of the most volatile histories of any city in Europe, being almost totally reduced to rubble in World War II. The city today is a unique combination of remembered and honored history and a vibrant, entertaining present. There are several historical buildings throughout the city that attest to the destruction here, but Dresden has rejuvenated itself since World War II, and today is one of Germany’s most tourist-friendly cities, with an enchanting energy and entertainment all year round. Famous for its Christmas markets, Dresden also has plenty to offer in the warmer months, from museums and memorials, to intriguing new architecture, pleasant parks, and nearby destinations for day trips. History comes alive everywhere you look in Dresden, and we highly recommend taking a closer look at the city’s museums and the traces of the past in the architecture. The city also has a rich cultural program, with numerous galleries and concert taking place quite regularly. You can certainly sample hearty German cuisine here, as well as more modern Continental flavours. You’ll love exploring this lovely city and the surrounding region.

Day 4

Day 4 - Arrival in Dresden

When you arrive at Dresden Hauptbahnhof you will easily find the station’s taxi rank signposted. We haven’t included a transfer here because in our experience meet & greet transfer services in Dresden are very overpriced, unreliable and the driver can be hard to locate in the station. Dresden's taxis are honest, reasonably priced and you’ll have no problem finding one at the station’s taxi rank, so you’ll save both time and money by taking one to your centrally located accommodation.

WWII and Hitler Private Walking Tour

WWII and Hitler Private Walking Tour

Included in your vacation package price.

This tour will take you on a memorable journey into Dresden's nadir, and the propaganda and promises that helped people accept and take part in the Nazi regime. Explore the myth and human motivations that shaped this dark period of world history while taking a guided walk through Dresden's historic center, which was destroyed during World War II but has since largely risen from the ashes.


Activity Level : Moderate
Duration : 2 hours

Day 5

Day 5 - Traveling to Prague by Train

Dresden 1945

Suggestion to explore on your own

Dresden's 1945 firebombing remains an infamous act, thanks in part to Kurt Vonnegut's "Slaughterhouse 5." While the city center has been largely rebuilt over the past few decades, the city's appearance during its 1765 zenith, and 1945 nadir, are both clear at the Panometer, a former gasometer transformed into two stunning panoramas. The Bundeswehr Military History Museum is another place worth visiting if you're interested in military history. This museum covers the history of German armed forces beginning with the late medieval period.

You're headed south to the capital of the Czech Republic, magical Prague. Your hotel reception will be able to arrange a taxi for you, much more economically than a transfer service, so we haven’t included that in your package but can do should you wish. From there you will take a train to Prague. Your package includes 2nd class tickets with seat reservations. 1st class tickets can be arranged for an additional fee.

Day 5 - Arrival in Prague

When you arrive at Prague's train station, we will have a driver there to meet you and take you to your accommodation.

The Dreadful Fate of Lidice Village

Suggestion to explore on your own

Fourteen miles northwest of Prague lies the remains of the village of Lidice, which was annihilated in revenge for the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich, the principal planner of the Holocaust. Killed by a squad of Czechoslovak commandos trained and parachuted in by the British, the death triggered a wave of SS reprisals. On May 27, 1942, Nazis murdered 173 men, sent the women and children to concentration camps, then destroyed the village. The village's museum, memorial and foundations can still be visited on private transfers to Terezin, Dresden, or Nuremberg or by a 17-min bus drive from Veleslavin Subway Station.

The Heroes of Operation Anthropoid

Suggestion to explore on your own

The Cathedral of Saints Cyril and Methodius in Prague’s New Town pays homage to the seven Czech and Slovak commandoes who were killed there during a gun battle with Nazi troops, at the end of "Operation Anthropoid." Trained in the UK, these commandoes parachuted into occupied Czechoslovakia, and assassinated Reinhard Heydrich, the Holocaust's chief architect, and one of Hitler's closest henchmen.

The Nuremberg Trials

Suggestion to explore on your own

In the aftermath of World War II, history was written, and some justice found, in the courtroom of the Nuremberg Palace of Justice. The leaders of the Nazi regime that had not managed to escape had to answer for their crimes before an International Military Tribunal that took place here in 1945 and 1946. The trials set precedents for international criminal law, and popularized the concept of "crimes against humanity." A working courtroom until recently, Courtroom 600 is now open to the public. The top floor of the courthouse is home to a documentation center, which provides insights about the defendants and their crimes, the subsequent Nuremberg Trials of 1946-49, and their impact. The courthouse is closed on Tuesdays.

With its traditional beer halls, designer shops, trendy restaurants and international business, Munich is a mix of old and new, German and cosmopolitan. Largely rebuilt after World War II, the city still retains its old world charm, even in the midst of expansion and modernization. You’ve probably heard of the city’s world famous Oktobertfest, a once-in-a-lifetime party dedicated to that incredible Bavarian beer along with some of the local delicacies, including tasty schnitzel. But there’s much more to Munich than drinking, and on your holiday you’ll have the chance to discover the best this charming city has to offer. Don’t miss out on the beer halls and the breweries, but be sure to get off the beaten path to discover a Munich of your own. Much of the city’s past centers around World War II, and there are several ways you can explore this chapter of Munich’s history, including a day trip to the Dachau concentration camp and a special tour focusing on Hitler and the local activities of the Third Reich. Munich is also a center of industry and there is nowhere better to experience this than BMW World. Moving slightly farther afield, Neuschwanstein Castle makes the perfect day trip, perched high in the hills over a verdant valley. Munich’s variety means there’s more than enough to satisfy even the most diverse groups of travelers. Let your curiosity guide you as you explore this unique German city.

First Night, First Beers

Suggestion to explore on your own

When in Munich, drink as the locals do. Munich has certainly earned its title as “Beer Capital of the World,” so what could be a better activity for your first night than going to one of its famed beer halls, meeting locals, and hearing their stories? If you’re the teetotalling type or raucous beer halls aren’t your thing, you can take a nice walk down Neuhauser Strasse, followed by the Kaufingerstrasse, leading to the city’s most famous square, the Marienplatz, with its magnificent city hall, the Neues Rathaus.

Day 11

Day 11 - Your First Full Day in Munich

Third Reich Private Walking Tour

Activity Level : Moderate
Duration : 3 hours

Munich's Jewish Heritage

Suggestion to explore on your own

Munich has Germany’s second largest Jewish community, after Berlin. Counterintuitively, many homeless Jews came to Munich after World War II, finding it a safer place with its American soldiers, than some lands further to the east, and many more arrived from the former Soviet Union after it broke up, followed by the current wave of well-educated Israelis. This colorful, cosmopolitan community is worth exploring, as is the community that preceded it and Nazism. We can recommend the city’s Jewish landmarks, and the restaurant home to the region's best kosher cuisine.

Day 12

Day 12 - Your Second Full Day in Munich

Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site Group Tour

Dachau Concentration Camp Group Tour
