Well worth two hours or more if you are interested in the diversity and courage of resistance to the Nazis. There are striking images and facsimilie documents but no artefacts as such so be prepared to do some reading. Sections are devoted to many different groups from young socialists and religious objectors to the high ranking army officers who led... More

I stumbled upon this memorial center / museum by accident and it was one of my favorite museums in Berlin. Curated to focus on the different groups of people who resisted the Nazis, each room focused on a different group like religious leaders, Roma, Jewish resistance, Youth resistance, etc. the individual stories were great and everything was in English and...

This is a powerful museum/memorial to the German people who resisted the nazi war machine, the conscientious objectors, the left wing intellectuals, communists, members of the German forces who attempted to overthrow Hitler, the young people, children, jews and Roma and all other individuals or resistance groups who objected to the horrors being perpetrated in the name of Germany.

The exhibition displays the few both well-known as well as unknown Germans that dared to act against the Nazi dictatorship. Highly recommendable!

This museum was much bigger than I expected it to be! The information is fascinating and very historically important so that's not a complaint. It is also free to enter and close to many other sights in the city centre. The only real issue I had with this museum is how it is organised. There is a lot of text... More

Had not really planned on visiting this place but was very glad we did. It helped me realize how much opposition to Hitler there actually was. Having this exhibit housed in the place where the failed Valkyrie coup crumbled made it all the more tragic. Seeing the spot where the conspirators (patriots) were executed was moving. Many apposed Hitler. Almost... More

This 'fringe' museum is on this site for a reason. Stauffenberg and others were actually executed in the courtyard of this building, the 'Bernderblock'. This site however, goes further, and an informative although dull museum educates you on the history of resistance against the NS and how various plots developed and their outcomes. The information though, is, typical of museums... More

We spent about an hour and a half here. I had seen the film about the Hitler assassination attempt but the level of detail at the resistance memorial was much greater. There is also so much more about other opponents to the regime including really interesting information about the 'swing boys' etc.

General Claus Von Stauffenberg and others in the military resistance were shot dead here on July 21,1944 after their failed plot to eliminate Hitler on July 20. The plots name was Valkyrie. Tiergarten district of Berlin is the location of the headquarters which was called the Bendlerblock and is across from the Maritim Hotel. Go through the passage way to... More

This Museum is opposite the Maritim Hotel and is free to the public. It is housed in the former site of the attempted coup. High German officials had made up their minds that Hitler must die. He was leading Germany in a suicidal war on two fronts, and assassination was the only way to stop him. A coup d’etat would... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
