 Führerbunker - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The bunker was the 13th and last of Hitler's Führerhauptquartiere or Fuehrer Headquarters (another was the famous Wolfsschanze).
The bunker was supplied with large quantities of food and other necessities and by all accounts successfully protected its occupants from the relentless and lethal shelling that went on overhead in the closing days of April 1945.
Most of the bunker's remaining occupants left within hours thereafter, trying with varying success to break through the lines of the encircling Red Army, which by this time was only a block or two away in any direction.

Hitler's bunker was in or rather under the garden of the Reichskanzlei (1), which was at 77 Wilhelmstraße, in the area where most of the government buildings were.

Most of it (the entrances and parts of the bunker) has already been destroyed, some of it by the Russians right after the end of the war, but there should be quite a bit left from the actual Führerbunker, which was 15 m eters underground and protected by meters of concrete.

These tunnels are often called "bunkers" today, but they are not technically so, since they were not meant as defensive positions from which to fight (even though their entrances were protected by machineguns), but simply as shelters in case of air attacks.
