The Room in Which Hitler and Eva Braun Committed Suicide
On January 16, 1945, Hitler established his residence in the Führerbunker, which served as the hub of the Nazi regime until the final days of World War II in Europe. It was also the location of Hitler’s marriage to Eva Braun on April 29, 1945, less than two days before their suicides.
Following the war, the Soviets demolished both the old and new Chancellery buildings, while the underground complex remained mostly intact, despite some attempts at destruction. However, during the reconstruction of the surrounding area in Berlin in 1988-89, the excavated parts of the old bunker complex were largely destroyed. The site was left unmarked until 2006, when a small plaque with a schematic diagram was installed. Although some of the bunker’s corridors still exist, they are inaccessible to the public due to being sealed off.
