  • We were so pleased that we made the time to explore this memorial centre. On the day of our visit, the first floor exhibition provided details on the Sippenhaft process which Hitler instigated to impr...  more »
  • In the Bendlerblock was the center of the assassination plot of July 20, 1944, around Colonel-General - military - resistance group D. Ludwig Beck and Colonel i. G. Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg a.. The permanent exhibition reminiscent of the resistance fighters in some former premises German resistance Memorial Center and in the yard the war memorial for the there executed officers. To be in this historic location and to get an idea of the operations affected, makes thoughtful, awesome. What would I as a person living in this time then actively undertaken or but to protect of his own family would rather refrain from? A nagging question - I don't have to answer. What remains? Relief. And the respect, yes the thanks to the German resistance movement in this period - which has dared the decisive throw...

  • Located in what during World War II was the Bendlerblock headquarters of the Supreme command of the army, the memorial dedicated to resistance to Nazism is arranged on two floors. The first are made periodically for small exhibitions devoted to a particular theme of resistance (during my visit there was an exhibition dedicated to the children of some of the members who implemented the Valkyrie who were sent into internal exile in Bad Sachsa) and on the second floor there is the permanent exhibition. In just over twenty rooms shows all groups (political, military, religious and youth) who opposed in every way to Nazism; but there are also the stories of some individual characters who sought in every way to oppose the dictatorship, such as Georg Elser. Of course it is given great importance to Valkyrie, attempt organized by some politicians and German soldiers of the Wehrmacht, and implemented by Colonel Claus Schenk von Stauffenberg (who dedicated the street where is located the Memorial), assassinate Adolf Hitler. Here, after the assassination attempt of 20 July 1944, members who attempted the coup, tried to carry out their plan, with limited success. In the courtyard at the entrance is a plaque commemorating the four members of the Valkyrie (Stauffenberg himself among them) that were shot on the evening of July 20. Little side note: for those who have difficulty with explanatory signs in German and English, there are audio guides in Italian

  • A great and really moving place. I visited this as part of a guided tour and it seemed to be a great place to go for a few hours or more. Unfortunately I didn't get to explore much due to the time constraints but it appeared to be very busy. Would certainly recommend a trip
  • This museum is very thought provoking; so many of us non-German people didn't realise there was quite so much resistance to the Nazis before and during the second world war. This set of exhibitions is very comprehensive spanning the time from well before the war until after. You will learn something new. Allow at least two or three hours to see most things.
  • This is a place everyone should visit to understand the degree of totalitarianism which existed in Hitlers Germany. The building and the Court yard alone have a deep impact when you just begin to think of the murder of so many who just wanted to bring to an end the misery created by National Socialism.
  • Standing in the courtyard is surreal when thinking of what took place here. Very much worth a visit if you're a WWII buff.
  • A very interesting museum covering many aspects of the german resistance during WW2. Like any other german museum with heavy topics, be prepared to spend a good amount of time here. Admittance is free.

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.
