Full description

Join a group tour of the Berlin-Hohenschönhausen Memorial to learn about the political persecution in post-war East Germany. Explore the site of the main remand prison for people detained by the Ministry State Security (Stasi). Hear the untold story of Berlin during the Cold War era.

Your group will be guided by a former inmate or a historian, giving you the most authentic account of the prison between 1951 and 1989. Still shrouded in mystery, the tour of the original prison buildings and exhibits will offer a reliable impression of the horrific and absurd life of the prison. You'll find that the permanent exhibition displays personal objects and photographs of the former political prisoners, revealing their personal memories of the physical violence and psychological torture of the ‘House of Horror’.

Gain an insight into the lives and motives of Stasi, the largest secret police in the world at that time. It will be a great lesson on the importance of freedom and democracy.

The 3-hour tour includes a pickup and drop-off by a private vehicle, so you can avoid public transport and get to the Berlin-Hohenschönhausen Memorial in time for your experience to begin. After the tour, the driver will take you back to your accommodation.
