Where everyone assumes all Germans were Nazis during WWII, this is an important site to visit. The material is stark and sad. But, this is a free site and really documents both how incredibly hard, brave and consistently deadly it was to resist the Nazis. It makes you appreciate a free society so much more as Germany was not in... More

Chosen by my daughter and glad she did. A quiet out of the way location but worth the effort. Tells of all the efforts by those opposed to Hitler and how he rose to power. Some surprising details. Permanent exhibition in English and german but the temporary one wasn't. Didn't detract though. Rather poignant and informative.

Visited this on a cycling tour. Have seen the film Valkyrie and it is so poignant that the Strasse it stands on is Stauffenbergstrasse.

This museum is very updated and put together well. It focuses on people who tried to fight against Hitler and his plans. One segment highlights multiple assassination attempts. Kind of out of our way, but I'm glad we stopped.

Just returned from Berlin & Dresden. We stayed at the Maritim Hotel in Stauffenberg Strasse (see spate review). A 'must see' is where the famous Hitler resistance fighter, Col. Von. Stauffenberg was shot. Lo and behold - it was right across the road from the hotel. It was a fascinating experience. The whole story of the struggle to resist Hitler... More

My Aussie husband and I (German) went to this museum and had quite an eye opening experience. We knew of some pockets of resistance but just didn't realise how many people across the board opposed (or tried to oppose) the Nazi regime. From students to adults from different ethnic backgrounds to army officials. It is all very well presented in... More

This museum has incorporated technology and documents to show the work of the brave and fearless people who fought the Nazis from within Germsny and the occupied territories. It was very quiet and I think tourists in Berlin should make it a place to visit, as it has so many uplifting but harrowing stories of people with conscience at this... More

Smallish museum but well laid out and easy to follow. Great insight into not just the events of the attempt to blow up Hitler as portrayed in the film with Tom Cruise, there is much information about the resistance movement in general.

Nice to see. Just a 30 minute visite is enough. Go there to sniff up some world war 2 emotions. It is a place where you can go back in time!

The German Defense Ministry is - again - next door, and again one sees Bundeswehr soldiers and officers all over the place. I suppose many of these go or are taken to this simple memorial to those that were executed for daring to act against an inhuman government by attempting to assassinate the so called Führer in July 1944. It... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
