Traudl and Peter leave Berlin is the last "real" scene in Downfall, before the fates of the characters are shown, followed by the Epilogue.

In Downfall

Panning across a destroyed highway overpass, Berliners are seen fleeing the city on foot, walking past the rubble. The panning stops at Traudl Junge and Peter Kranz, who are sitting together on the ruins in the distance, and zooms in twice showing the two close up. Peter discovers a bicycle and runs to it, while Traudl watches. He picks up the bike smiling and Traudl smiles.

Traudl and Peter are riding the bike together on an unpaved road surrounded by trees, on their way out of Berlin. The scene has no dialogue.

In Downfall Parodies

Due to the lack of dialogue, the scene is rarely used in parodies. However, it has been used in musical parodies, such as mfaizsyahmi's DPMV Baba O'Kranz, as well as Gilblitz112's Tongues DPMV. It also appears in the opening of mfaizsyahmi's parody, Berlin is being turned into rubble while I play unfitting music.



  • Since Peter is a fictional character, this scene, and another previous scene with the two are likely an artistic license on the director's part.
