Although the Topography of Terror should by rights be the single most important Nazi-related site to visit in Berlin, it is curiously flat and unmoving. The museum is built on the site of the former Gestapo headquarters and indeed, below ground level you can walk around some of the foundations of that building. The foundations are, well, just bricks with little explanation of why we should care. The exhibit itself is exhaustive, exhausting and fairly dry and would suit the more academic minded rather than a person looking for an overview of what the Nazis did. A better and more evocative place to go is the Wannsee House, where the Final Solution was formally launched.
