  • Admission free of charge! Multimedia and presented with much illustrative exhibition of Germany from 1945 history lovers come here at their own expense. Always bring plenty of time, it is worth

  • In the Haus der Geschichte, one can undertake a small journey through the recent history of Germany up to the present day. It is clear, entertaining and playful design that even younger are likely to develop an interest. Of terror to the nostalgia, everything exists and invites you to linger hours. From my point of view a compulsory programme for each Deutsche(n).

  • The Museum was very nice and totally interesting. Admission is free, and thus a trip to the cold days worth.
