  • The round corner from Leibzig was the headquarters of the Stasi in Leipzig from 1950 to 1989. Admission is free it is but asked for a small donation. The Museum is in this building since 1990 and impresses with a variety of interesting exhibits. There is private access for wheelchair users.

  • The Museum (free admission) is a shockingly honest views of East Germany through many exhibits and articles. It's a pity that the Museum is very easy to set up. Aesthetically, it would be very expandable, so that there can be read through everything to / want to.

  • The museum displays many exhibits of the GDR time and you should take time to look at everything and read much in the exhibition. Admission is free, a small donation should spare everyone but to keep the Museum more accessible for as many future visitors.

  • Really impressive
  • Very interesting, well-designed Museum, then bringing the time one, especially because you've read much about it. The exhibits and documents are sometimes frightening. Admission is free but please donate! Such initiatives are necessarily worth keeping.
