  • After more than 25 years reunion you can feel here the hostile atmosphere of the former zone border. The border fortifications have been preserved here still completely. Many documents and uniforms are exhibited in containers. Outdoors then many vehicles (from the bucket Trabbi, using tanks and helicopter) the two German border guards. All very well in the shot. You should spare more than an hour, something we had to hurry to the closure. Is definitely a detour worth should in particular young people, who have not experienced the time, see...

  • The Museum is located at the original site. It is still a part of the original of border fence get together with lanes and watchtower. The exhibition at the Museum is very well done and historically very valuable. Tanks, helicopters and all kinds of vehicles of the army, Bundeswehr, border patrol and U.S. Army are issued. There's the shovel wheel loader with the Heinz Josef large 1982 had taken the fatal escape attempt, see. Shocking documentation and documents are also issued and two helicopters are accessible. Admission is €6.

  • Lovingly maintained by the Club presents itself the border Museum at original point such as a fence and observation tower from ancient times. A stone's throw from bad Sooden-Allensdorf removed.

  • Super interesting place for anyone interested in German history. Great preserved outdoor museum. I have been there several times and they expanded each time. Photo collection is excellent.
  • It's nice and super interesting, but most things are in unheated areas, so be prepared
  • Make sure you visit this boarder museum, fantastic displays, see the original boarder tracks and towers and collection of DDR/Soviet & west vehicles (hind gunship!). Great collection of vehicles to see!
  • Very evocative. A real ex-DDR border location which shows the 'death strip' where one man was shot trying to escape ro the West
  • Interesting small museum about the East-West German border during the Cold War. Several helicopters and vehicles are also on display. English guide available at front desk.
