This memorial has several rooms of furntiure from Friedrich Ebert's time (though not necessarily his family's furniture in all cases). Then there are small exhibits, videos, posters, etc., describing German history at the time. I did find the huge stack of Wiemar Republic money from...More

Friedrich Ebert was Germany's first elected president. There could not have been a worse time to be elected president of Germany: immediately after World War 1. This museum traces his life and career and that of Germany from the late 19th century to his death...More

You need over an hour to see this museum thoroughly. It was very interesting to see the history of Germany through the life of Friedrich Ebert. The museum is free and provides free English (maybe other languages also, not sure) headphones with audio.

Ebert was a rags to riches fellow in the SDA. The museum is interesting and very well set out. It's free, as is the audio guide without which it wouldn't be worth visiting as there are no English translations. Eberts actual birth house displayed and...More
