Since 1999, the Berlin Underworlds Association has been offering regular tours into some of the most important underground structures in the city. Although the majority of our tours are in or near Gesundbrunnen station in the north of Berlin, we also offer tours in several other subterranean complexes that are otherwise not publicly accessible.

“Do not miss this tour”
Reviewed 7 January 2012

Not interested in bunkers? Perhaps you find them boring? Well, take a tour with Berliner Unterwelten and the odds are you will change your mind. Honestly. We opted for a tour featuring an air raid shelter situated at 'Gesundbrunnen' underground station. From the very beginning till the very end the guide kept us downright captivated. Everything he said was not only highly interesting but, which is none the less significant, conveyed in a fascinating way -- far from an overly stiff and often times soporific tone of conventional guides. So, once again, if you think that bunkers are not your thing, do give this tour a chance!

“Learn how ordinary Germans lived out WWII”
Reviewed 2 January 2012

Excellent tour with animated, knowledgeable guide, Anja, who is a member of the Underground Association. There were exhibits in every room and the guide would take time to explain them. 90 mins went fast. A truly unique tour! Tickets sell out fast so be prepared to join a later tour instead.

“Fascinating tours”
Reviewed 1 January 2012

We did Tour 1 (WWII bunkers) followed by Tour 3 which was the nuclear bunkers tour - both were excellent, with good guides who brought this all to life, and who gave us great insight into something we knew little or nothing about. A highly recommended organisation, whose guides were genuinely passionate about what they were telling us about, and added yet another fascinating dimension to Berlin.

“A unique view of hidden history”
Reviewed 4 December 2011

The tours are run by volunteers in a variety of languages - check first on their website to see what is running when as it varies by season and day. The tours give you an opportunity to see places you cannot get to otherwise and a fascinating glimpse into history (old and new). Tour 1 takes you round the labyrinth of the WWII air raid shelter at their ticket office. The stairs are fine for anyone with reasonable mobility and there's not a lot of them. If you go on a Sunday you can then follow this up with Tour 3 of the nearby Cold War nuclear bunkers (just enough time between for drink and loo break), which gives an excellent contrast between the two. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and the tours were fascinating. Photographs are forbidden (flash lights in tunnels not great), do don't worry about lugging a camera round. Got there at 1030 and got the last tickets do don't leave it too late as you can't book in advance (oh and cash only). Bargain price though

“Good Tour, could have done with longer to look around”
Reviewed 2 December 2011

We went on the Tour 1, the bunker tour.

It lasted an hour and a half which was a good length of time but there was quite a lot to see and possibly could have done with longer. There were quite a few people on our tour so it was a little hard to squeeze in to some of the rooms at times. Also hard to see all the exhibits with so many people.

The guide was very knowledgeable. There are quite a few stairs and some uneven ground.

I would recommend this tour and you cant see this place without going on the tour.
