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

Another important and, as it is housed where the anti Hitler plotters were based, very evocative. Lots of information provided. It is not an easy read and fairly dry in the presentation but it is all important information. It has the feel of a research centre and there are knowledgeable staff and lots of school trips. Not a barrel of... More

If you are a WWII buff like I am, you have read about the assasination attempt on Adolf Hitler on 20 July 1944. You may even have seen the movie starring Tom Cruise "The Walkyrie". This is the real deal! Bendlerblock and the very spot where Colonel Stauffenberg was executed. Plus an exhibition giving you more details about this fatefull... More

Not worth the visit. The display is based on texts on walls, which may have been the standard for a museum 50 years ago, but lack the required edge for transferring the experience to a modern traveller. No vidows, clips, live testimonies...Nothing to engage the viewer.

This was a really good small museum and very interesting covering the resistance to the Nazis. We did not have a lot of time to spend so unfortunately only visited the permanent exhibition. It was well worth the walk from Potsdamer Platz. Another really good site in Berlin that is free to visit.

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.
