|World War II History in Poland - Visit the Wolf's Lair and Auschwitz Memorial|
The Wolf's Lair Tour starts and finishes at Berlin International Airport. Features include lots of time at the Wolf's Lair near Rastenburg, Warsaw, Krakow, Auschwitz and Waldenburg in Poland. The Wolf's Lair Tour follows the story of the July 20, 1944 assassination attempt on Hitler's life. We will visit many sites connected to Colonel Stauffenberg and the plot to kill Hitler. The Tour also includes many World War II historical sites in Berlin, Germany. Hitler spent nearly half of World War II (over 800 days) at 'Wolfsschanze' (Wolf's Lair) compound near Rastenburg, which in 1942 contained as many as 80 buildings housing over 2000 employees including massive bunkers for Goering, Bormann and Hitler among others. We spend two days touring Wolfsschanze and the additional OKH (Oberkommando des Heeres) Headquarters at nearby Mamerki (Mauerwald). We'll spend two great nights in fascinating Warsaw to discover the story of its past and the echoes of its Uprisings. This Tour includes two nights in spectacular Krakow, which allows us plenty of time to explore the town and its history. We will visit the most infamous Nazi Death camps in the world: Auschwitz and Birkenau. The Wolf's Lair Tour also includes a visit to one of the 'Project RIESE' Bunkers near Waldenburg (Walbryzch), and the 'Great Escape' POW Camp (Stalag Luft III) in Zagan. We conclude with lots of sites in Berlin, including the Bendlerblock, where Stauffenberg and other members of the German Resistance ultimately met their fate.
