I learned a lot about the aftermath of WWII and the cold war. This place is full of information. Make sure that you also visited the outside area as well as the inside. Allow plenty of time to wander around.
Built on the site of the (now levelled) Gestapo HQ, this museum shows the history of the rise of Hitler and the Nazi regime. well worth a visit - for some thought provoking contemplation. Tastefully done in a bright modern building, which includes a cafe.
While like everyone else, I found this exhibit rather heart breaking seeing everything that is on display.
It is a very emotional display and you can understand the problems that occurred.
In saying that I also felt sorry for the current Berliners as its a...More
A lot, but a lot of information about history and the WW2. You need plenty of days to go ahead all that information and documents open to the people for free. So interesting place, but you need a lot of time if you want to...More
The location and the way the exposition is design is great. However, all the information available is either in German or English, and the english version is presented in a tiny font I personally had a hard time reading.
Highly recommended to to visit during your time in Berlin if you would like to understand an important aspect of WWII. Well structured for English speaking visitors. The museum does a great job of indicating the evolution in the behaviour of the SS during WWII....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.
