Full Answer

The marriage ceremony was a civil service, not a religious one. Afterward, the couple had a small wedding breakfast. On the afternoon of April 30, 1945, with Russian forces closing in on their position, Hitler and his new wife committed suicide by gunshot and cyanide, respectively. Their bodies were carried to and burned in a garden behind the Reich Chancellery, which was just near the Führerbunker.
