This we came across by accident, it is free to go in and was fascinating, it tells the story of the German Nazi rising and all the buildings that were in the local area that were used by the SS etc. Very interesting!

Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can
both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central
