  • Only a 5 minute walk from tube station. Short steep set of steps to get you to Flak Tower. I only visited the outside but it was worth it. Superb views of Berlin from the top. There are English tours ...  more »
  • As a history teacher this place fascinated me. These hidden flak towers are one of six that were meant to be built and one of three that were built. They are almost invisible until you walk right up t...  more »
  • During the war were built 3 large anti-aircraft towers in Berlin (in other cities as well) but it is only this left. A fascinating experience to enter the tower and climb down the stairs and try to understand how it was that civilian to be there during the battle. Frightening and fascinating during the same time. A complete experience.

  • We had some time left before the Underwood tour was going to start (which is across the main road from this building) and thus we ended up here. Not many people know of this place but it is worth visit if you want to know more history of world war 2. This place was used to protect Germans from attacks. The fences bring the haunting pictures of the world war to you. But at one point it also helps you relive that this place protected people. You can visit the exterior till top without tickets.
  • Good to see if you are into graffiti and trains. Nice view from the top to the city
  • It's not much of a memorial, but historic and interesting nonetheless.
  • The tours were amazing. Been twice now. Must be experienced.
  • Hidden, massive gem. Contact berlin unterweltern to get an astonishing tour inside this singular time capsule

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
