Recently completely renovated it displays comprehensively the German resistance against the 3rd Reich. Often overlooked it tells the story of the brave women and men which tried to fight the regime and lost their life. No Berlin visit is complete without visiting the Gedenkstaette.

I thought this was a very undersold and amazingly informative and moving exhibition. If it wasn't for my Lonely Planet Guide Book I would not have known of it. A short stroll from Potsdamer Platz is this museum (free!) all about resistence fighters against the Nazi regime, anyone who is a European history buff will love it. It is situated... More

An important, but lesser known, part of the history of the nazi period/WW2 is revealed in this museum. Very glad we spent the time, it is an eye opener. The lesser said about the content, the better. Don't miss this if you are interested in that period of German history.

For anyone who knows history - this is a must see in Berlin. We were extremely moved and thankful for the sacrifices these men made.

This is a great place to go to for anyone interested in the Nazi regime. There's information all over Berlin on every aspect of World War II, but this place covers something that's lesser reported; German resistance of Hitler & the 3rd Reich and in particular, the assassination attempt on Hitler by Claus Von Stauffenberg. I didn't know much about... More

The memorial for those (including Claus Schenk von Stauffenberg) who were executed here on 20 July 1944 is small, but the historic location and the knowledge what happened here makes it impressive. On the first floor of the building is a permanent exposition about the German resistance in the Second World War. Really recommended for those who are interested in... More

Thia museum/exhibit is worth a visit if youre in the area, as other reviews have said its not a touristy place and you cannot buy refreshments here. Information is provided in german and english and is very informative. One floor is closed off for a refurb but there is still enough to learn about. A large section of the museum... More

As others have said this memorial is worth hunting down. Resistance to the Nazi's in Berlin was pretty limited from what I can gather from my reading, however this is a sobering memorial to those who did question Hitler's regime, particularly from the inside. The permanent exhibition is currently being reworked so the displays were limited but very worth while.... More

Just spotted this on the day, and decided to drop in en route from our previous destination. It was a good job I'd got it pinpointed on the map as we'd never have found it otherwise. Even when we were inside the courtyard it wasn't obvious where to go to get inside the museum! Inside was a bit taken over... More

As the previous review has said the area is currently under refurbishment so perhaps when it's done you'll get a better sense what happened here. It does give you an eerie feeling knowing what once happened on that spot and there are some story boards giving a brief background of the conspirators and how later German leaders have commemorated their...
