This museum is in an iconic building: where Germany surrendered for a second time to end WWII (the first surrender took place the day before in Reims, France). The museum is in eastern Berlin, so well away from most every other museum and attraction in...More

A little way out of the city so not hyped up but one of the best museums we've visited - it's gruelling in places but a good mix of media and a treasure trove of information.

Just aweinspiring to be at the location where WW2 peace was signed. Fantastic museum, albeit a bit "Russian". A must do!!! Good military vehicles, tank and artillary pieces (All Russian) outside. Rooms filled with artefcats and history. Well presented and documented.

This museum is quite far out of Berlin, but well with the visit as this is where the Unconditional Surrender that ended WWII was signed. It is also free. We fortunately had a car and it was easy to find.

Hi. I downloaded the BVG app which is brilliant and bought the 3 day travel pass for trains and buses which is great value. I guess you could do Uber which works well in Berlin but will cost more than a 3 day pass. Hope... More
