Since 1987 a permanent exhibition at the site where the headquarters of the Secret State Police, the SS and the Reich Security Main Office were located during the “Third Reich” has been providing information to the public about the most important...more
All reviews berlin wall nazi regime gestapo headquarters nazi party free museum chronological order third reich couple of hours checkpoint charlie second world war worth a visit take your time two hours german history visiting berlin ss rise
this is a history of how the Nazi party came to power in the late 1930th and how Hitler came to power and how the Jews got treated, one of the places you have to go to see what happened and can never happen again
If you haven’t included a 1/2 day to spend at this remarkable place, you are doing yourself great injustice. And it is free! How brilliant to take land of former Nazi Headquarters and prison and turn it into memorial/documentation center/museum of complete Nazi history/atrocities. Be...More
This place was recommended by friends and was truly wonderful. So much information was provided in a easy to follow manner. It was all done in chronological order through the years.
I spend hours in this little gem of a place and you truly get...More
this was the only place we visited that was free and we found it by accident! i found it very informative and eerie at the same time it was one of the best places i visited on my weekend break, highly recommendable
See for yourself in detail how a well ordered democracy descended into one of THE most brutal totalitarism regimes in history.
The indoor exhibition is a bit heavy om reading and could do well with some more interactive elements, of which there were basically none....More
This exhbition was rightly free of charge - no-one should have to pay to learn about this topic.
Its more an exhibition of photos with commentary than a museum - but really interesting - you cal tell everybody was enthralled. No punches are pulled -...More
This is not for the squeamish. Indoors, it is basically a series of photographs with accompanying text that explain the rise and fall of the Nazis (and most of the stuff in-between). Some of the photographs are graphic. Some of the text is graphic.
Very nice facility on the former location of the worst of the Thid Reich. Artifacts are described in German and extremely good English, and there are lots of them. A balanced view point from the perspective of how circumstances in Weimar Germany allowed and even...More
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today
you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
