Führerbunker (The Last Days of Hitler)
It is located in the backyard of the residential apartment building. You are unlikely to find it on your own because very little or nothing at all is written about it in conventional travel guides. And if you find it, you’ll probably be the only one there, with no other tourists in sight. There are no signs leading to it. There is no sign of plaque or any information whatsoever to tell you that you are next to it, looking at it, standing on it. What is it? It is Hitler’s bunker. There is now a sign showing the location of the Führerbunker.
