Site of Hitler's Bunker in Berlin
The location of the Führerbunker (Hitler’s Bunker) is now marked. For years, the German government had specifically left it unmarked in fear that it would become a pilgrimage shrine for neo-Nazis. There’s a parking lot on the spot where it’s said that the bodies of Eva Braun and Adolph Hitler were burnt. Some of the bunker was destroyed by the Soviets at the end of the war, and other parts were recently discovered during a construction project. It’s located at the corner of In den Ministergarten and Gertrude Kolmar Strasse (near the Holocaust Memorial). The site of Hitler's Bunker is part of the Berlin Wall Walk found in "Berlin Made Easy."
