We spent about an hour and a half here. I had seen the film about the Hitler assassination attempt but the level of detail at the resistance memorial was much greater. There is also so much more about other opponents to the regime including really interesting information about the 'swing boys' etc.

General Claus Von Stauffenberg and others in the military resistance were shot dead here on July 21,1944 after their failed plot to eliminate Hitler on July 20. The plots name was Valkyrie. Tiergarten district of Berlin is the location of the headquarters which was called the Bendlerblock and is across from the Maritim Hotel. Go through the passage way to... More

This Museum is opposite the Maritim Hotel and is free to the public. It is housed in the former site of the attempted coup. High German officials had made up their minds that Hitler must die. He was leading Germany in a suicidal war on two fronts, and assassination was the only way to stop him. A coup d’etat would... More

The Resistance Memorial Centre and the Bendler Block are a must see for anyone interested in the history of WW II. It seems to be largely overlooked ... even my cab driver, a native Berliner, wasn't aware of it. That is unfortunate, as the museum itself has a wealth of information about resistance efforts during this period. The centre of... More

This museum has a major focus on the people who actively opposed the Nazi in German. As such, it gives a complimentary persepctive. Worth a 2 hour visit.

My husband and I visited the memorial in July. This place really should rate much higher in terms of things to see in Berlin. WW2 is an interest for us and we have visited many museums in this regard, including Auschwitz and Birkenau. After visiting the latter two sites you leave with sorrow and concern for the humanity within man... More

FREE You need to take the FREE audioguide to take the full advantage of this museum/memorial. It is very well done with a lot of text, photos and video. Don't miss it if you are interested in 2nd war history

Like quite a few others, we found this almost by accident, but are so glad we did. Detailing the various groups opposed to the NSDAP (Nazi) party from their beginnings through their rise to power and specifically the July 20th 1944 assassination attempt (which I'm ashamed to admit I was unaware of until the recent film!) you can read all...

My husband and I are huge fans of the Valkyrie movie by Tom Cruise as we liked the the other side of the Nazis story. It is good to see the Germans have remembered those who had risked everything, mostly their lives, to protect the vulnerable and to reserve a country they loved. The courtyard is probably the most somber... More

This is a very interesting exhibit, but it takes a lot of time and reading to get through. The interior is very modern, with the walls covered in panels showing photographs with multi-lingual descriptions. I would have preferred it if they had some original artifacts, but as someone who is very interested in WW2, I was happy. I imagine, however,... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
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.
