Tips from locals
Built on the site of the Gestapo and SS headquarters, the Topography of Terror consists of an indoor exhibition documenting the atrocities carried out during the Nazi regime and an outdoor walking trail following the outline of the former buildings. Open every day from 9:00 to 20:00.
Just 20mins away from the flat, most of the people interested in history don't miss out on it. This is a historical gallery with lots of pictures, information and real archeological sights. You can hire a guide in your preffered language.
An interesting and well-done reappraisal of Germany's/Berlin's darker history throughout WW II.
In a old Gestapo-area, the museum is free and one of the most beautiful of the capital. The concept of the construction and of the exposition is really interesting, the place full of contemporary history...under the museum there is an important specialized historical library on National Socialism.
