Topography of Terror Museum

Museum Open in this Schedule (possibly closed due Covid-19 restrictions) Check location

Housed in the former Gestapo and SS headquarters between 1933 and 1945, the neo-baroque building was the place of horrendous interrogation and torturing – most of these horrific events happened in the basement.

The documents and pictures displayed at the Topography of Terror’s permanent exhibition, inside and outside the museum’s buildings, depict this sordid past. The tour takes in 15 information stations directly where the crimes were planned and committed, affecting at least 15.000 opponents of the Nazi Regime imprisoned here and later sent to concentration camps.

A place of remembrance and warning for the future, the Topography of Terror illustrate the history from the time the Nazis took power until the end of the war. A temporary exhibition opened from spring to autumn, tells the story of Berlin in the Weimar Republic, Berlin under the Nazis and during the war and the consequences of Nazi rules, at a site where a large section of the Berlin Wall is still visible.
