If you visit the former Berlin government district today, 65 years after the end of the Second World War, it will be virtually impossible for you to take your bearings from historical buildings. For this reason, work directed by Christoph Neubauer has been ongoing since 2003 to develop a 3D computer model of the old Berlin government district. The model enables a virtual camera to simulate any historical view, and this technique Neubauer used over recent years to create several documentary films dealing with the topic. The aim of the present book is to use this same technology to help guide you around a city tour through Hitler’s Berlin. The guide contains outline maps from the various time periods, enabling you to follow the way in which the footprint of the government district has changed over the years. A current photograph is presented on each description page to show you in which direction you should look from the respective location. This is contrasted with a picture depicting the historic situation for each point. The city tour provides you with a wealth of background information on the different buildings and takes you on a walk of approximately one hour’s duration to important landmarks within Hitler’s government district.
