Where exactly in Berlin did Hitler commit suicide?

Whatever happened to these guys is a common question by curious tourists.

Adolph Hitler was born in 1889 in Braunau am Inn, Austria. Father died in 1903. Joined military during WW1, with mediocre finishing rank of corporal, watercolorist denied twice entry into the Vienna Institute of Art. Led a failed Nazi uprising against the Bavarian government which led to his jail sentence in which he wrote Mein Kampf (My Struggle).

Adolf Hitler committed suicide in his underground bunker, known as the Führerbunker, located in Berlin, Germany. The Führerbunker was constructed in early 1945 as an air-raid shelter and command post for Hitler and his inner circle. It was situated beneath the garden of the Reich Chancellery, which was the official residence of the German head of state.

On April 30, 1945, as Allied forces closed in on Berlin and the situation for the Nazi regime grew increasingly dire, Adolf Hitler and his longtime companion Eva Braun took their own lives in the Führerbunker. Hitler died by ingesting cyanide, while Braun died by ingesting cyanide and also through gunshot. Their bodies were subsequently carried to the garden above the bunker and set on fire.

The exact location of the Führerbunker is now a parking lot in central Berlin, near the intersection of In den Ministergärten and Gertrud-Kolmar-Straße. There is a plaque marking the spot where the bunker once stood, commemorating the historical events that took place there.
