This museum is quite far out of Berlin, but well with the visit as this is where the Unconditional Surrender that ended WWII was signed. It is also free. We fortunately had a car and it was easy to find.

This is right on the Eastern fringes of Berlin and tells the story of the German forces surrender to the Russian and Allied forces in May 1945, really interesting with lots of Russian hardware outside.

While the museum is indeed a little out of the way, it is definitely worth the trip, if you want to see some real artefacts from the WW2 era. The museum featured a broad array of maps, interactive exhibitions, and interesting allied perspectives on the...More

Located in the very building where the surrender was signed this is a serious grown up museum full of information and displays that convey the horrors of the Russian front. It isn't in my opinion a biased museum and nor does it glorify the military...More

This museum is out of the way and you have to walk through a residential housing estate to get there. Its unassuming appearance is deceptive as it is the location of the German surrender. Lots of informative exhibits from the soviet perspective, and you really...More

Hi. I downloaded the BVG app which is brilliant and bought the 3 day travel pass for trains and buses which is great value. I guess you could do Uber which works well in Berlin but will cost more than a 3 day pass. Hope... More
