What to expect

The Wolf’s Lair was the most important of Hitler’s headquarters hidden in Masuria, a region of Northern Poland famous for its 2.000 lakes.

Because of its lakes and swamps, it was the perfect place to set up an inaccessible complex of bunkers. The complex, which would become one of several Führer Headquarters located in various parts of occupied Europe, was built for the start of Operation Barbarossa (the invasion of the Soviet Union) in 1941. The top secret, high-security site was in the Masurian woods about 8 km from the small East Prussian town of Rastenburg (now Kętrzyn in Poland). Three security zones surrounded the central complex where the Führer’s bunker was located. Despite the security, an assassination attempt against Hitler was made at Wolf’s Lair on 20 July 1944. Unfortunately, the bomb planted by Claus von Stauffenberg in the map room did not kill Hitler (he survived around 35 assassination attempts during his life). On 25th of January 1945, due to the rapid advance of the Red Army, the complex was blown up and abandoned.

Your guide will pick you up from your hotel and drive with you to the Wolf’s Lair, where you will explore the complex with him or a local guide. After ~3 hours you’ll drive back to Warsaw, lunch stop is possible on the way. Please bear in mind that you'll not only have a driver with you, but you’ll also spend all day with an experienced guide. That’s why this tour is different.

If you prefer an exclusive service book the private option of the tour.
