An excellent museum/exhibition but be aware that it is very hard going emotionally. I had tears in my eyes half way through as the awful history of the third reich was laid out in detail in front of me.

This is a succinct way to understand the rise of the Nazi power and how Hitler gained control. There is an outdoor portion and a more detailed indoor portion. Allow at least an hour. This was probably the best historical site we saw in Berlin.
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.
