This has many rooms and you can explore 800 years of Berlin's history. There is even a bom shelter for viewing. There is an admision but it is worth it as it takes a long time to see it all

Dimitrio was a great guide and took time to explain the history and to answer questions. He was willing to go longer to make sure we saw as much as possible. Highly recommend him!

Housed in an old bunker/air raid shelter, the story takes you through the early child hood of Adolf Hitler, the rise of the Socialist movement, through the war years and up until the fall of Berlin. It was very well laid out, informative as well...More

This museum is made inside a big old building on multiple floors. If you watch the building from the outside you will never guess what's inside and how big is it. The first thing you will need to take with you when you go there...More

To round of my trip I decided to go here. Not particularly easy to get to with renovations and it’s location but definitely worth it. The bunker was closed but the story was told in a relaxed and informal way. Nice to finish the trip...More

A little haphazard and it was really busy when we visited which made it a bit difficult to enjoy. Some of the films were superb and the bunker is the highlight.

This was an interesting museum. Wish I knew my world history better since it would have made more sense. There is construction going on out front so it was difficult to find the entrance. And the bunker was closed, which was a disappointment. But our...More

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
