A key stop on any visit to Berlin - an outdoor timeline tells the 1933-45 story with great clarity, whilst the visitor centre offers more details on the site itself (the former SS/Gestapo headquarters). There's a relatively significant stretch of the Berlin Wall immediately adjacent...More

We spent a couple of hours there as we found the content super interesting and well explained. You can learn more about the history and I think that this is something everybody must visit in Berlin

A brilliant stretch of the wall as it would have looked no graffiti or murals just grey and depressing. On one side of the wall is a long stretch of photos and information of Hitlers rise and fall and the atrocities he committed. You could...More

Probably a 'must see' in Berlin. Whatever your knowledge or age, take the time to follow the timeline and read the exhibits to gain a true perspective on German 20th century history

A sunken open air history lesson. Panels on a timeline showing Hitler's rise to power and then the war and defeat. Kids a bit bored by some of it, as it's all reading. I have never studied WWII history so had no in depth understanding...More

I took my 17 and 15 year old daughters here, and it was a good decision. The facts are presented objectively and the horror is not in your face but easily appreciated here.

This is right next to the museum - easy to get to from the U-Bahn. In both German & English - you will only need about 30 min to read all the plaques, but worthwhile....

Starting from the west end, this is a thought-provoking and humbling trip through the history of the site, Berlin and Germany in general.

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

The closest stations are Potsdamer Platz (U + S bahn), Kochstraße (U bahn) and Anhalter Bahnhof (S bahn) which are more or less equidistant.
