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

This was a very interesting exhibit dealing with the German resistance to Hitler during the war culminating in the unsuccessful bombing attempt on 7/20/1944. The unfortunate consequences for the perpetrators is chronicled.

This free museum is not very large, but it has a lot of information (so there's a lot to read). It describes all the people who resisted the Nazis--most of whom were executed. Decades later, this small museum honors their memory at the site where the Operation Valkyrie plans were made and where the conspirators were executed. This museum is... More

I stumbled on the Resistance Memorial a bit by accident - it is out of the way so you need to look hard. The Museum that is part of the Memorial illustrates how the plotters to assassinate Hitler went about their plot. It then shows how the plotters and virtually anyone associated with them was treated. In the courtyard you... More

Mabe 15 minutes walk from the Sony centre, so it was a a bit of a mission to find it. Unfortunately i did not have much time to look around, but I saw the memorial to the Colonel that led the 1944 plot against Hitler (played by tom cruise). I sped round the rest of the museum, but i would... More

Much of German WWII history museums rightly focus on the horrors that Nazis carried out, this museum is different because it tells the story of the few who were brave enough to risk their own and their families' lives to oppose the Nazi regime. It is interesting to see the variety of people who took part in this resistance for... 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.
