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). We provide tickets for a guided tour and private car transfers to the memorial. Hear the untold story of Berlin during the Cold War era. The 3-hour option includes a pickup and drop-off by a private vehicle, so you can avoid public transport and get to the Berlin-Hohenschönhausen Memorial just on time for your guided tour. Your group will be led by a former inmate or a historian as a guide, giving you the most authentic account of the Hohenschönhausen prison between 1951 and 1989. This place is still shrouded in mystery, but this tour of the original prison buildings and museum exhibits will offer a reliable impression of the horrific and absurd life of the prison. 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’. They also offer 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. After the guided tour, the driver will be ready to take you to your apartment.
