A monument of physical and psychical terror from in a society where human rights went down the drain to maintain control and power.

Must see when in Berlin! Amazing guides with a lot of knowledge about what happened in there. The political prisoners where there in months and moths without ANY form of contact to their people. Insane and very very scary!

This Stasi prison is definitely to be seen if you want to understand what the DDR citizens had to experience not too long ago.

Why don't you email them? I emailed them about something else and they replied very promptly. Look at their website for the address.

I don't recall seeing a specific parking lot. We visited between Christmas and New Year's, and there was plenty of street parking near the entrance. As others have said, this is a side street in a residential area so... More
