Why locals love it

Topography of Terror is a free exhibition about police and state terror during the Nazi regime. On the site of the former Central Police Office of the Third Reich there’s a documentation centre which provides insightful information about the crimes committed by police and the SS in Germany and throughout Europe.

Why you should visit it

This is Germany´s main documentary centre about the crimes of the institutions of the Nazi state. Among various permanent and changing exhibitions inside the building you take a walk across the area outside while listening to the explanations of an audio guide.

Special tip

Some untreated parts of the Berlin Wall are still standing in the area in its original place.

Didn’t know what to expect when going there. However it was a really impressive exhibition. Do take caution though, it will take a lot of you energy. Not too suprising with the heavy content but still..

A must-visit for those interested in learning more about Germany’s troubled past. It’s worth noting that the permanent exhibition is fairly text heavy.
