The Topography of Terror Museum is interesting and worthwhile a visit however was a bit disappointed by the lack of variety in the museum. The museum is only pictures and texts from WW2/holocoust. There is nothing other than pictures in the museum - no artifacts,...More

It all makes it seem to easy the way things escalated so quickly. It is truly frightening on how peoples mind were captivated and cowed by a leader and a party of thugs basically.

One of the most thought provoking things you'll see in Berlin. You'll read all about the rise of Hitler and The Nazis, their fanatical rallies and of course their atrocities. Quite graphic but you have to see it and read every poster/picture. It's so captivating....More

Chilling museum with harrowing pictures but important to show man's inhumanity to man and how one man rising to power can manage to take so many others along with him and do unspeakable things. Would have liked to have longer to spend there to take...More

We spent time walking from display to display and observing the history of how the Nazi party came to power and how the occupation of each country was affected by the party. Its sobering and sad for sure, but worth every minute of it.

This free of charge museum is a must when you are willing to confront with the history starting around 1933. Just take your time to reveal the chronology of what happened in Germany and some other European Countries. Maybe it helps to understand, but at...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

Sorry. I cannot ensure you about that, because the day I went it was only available in german (perhaps I was only that day)... but the text is available in both languages.
