Lots of reading, but worth it. The text was supported by informative photographs and detailed the rise of the Nazi party, anti-semitism, Blitzkrieg, War strategy, the final solution and the deadly role of the SS and Gestapo. Riveting and terrifying in equal measure.

An interesting afternoon. Lots of reading and photos documenting the Nazi rise to power and progressing through the war. Quite graphic photos in some of the areas, I would not recommend for children. Takes at least an hour, worth visiting.

We spent three hours at the Topography of Terror reading through the main exhibition. It is well set up and extremely informative. I would recommend getting there early, by midday it was very busy.

Most of the original building is gone. In its place is a tasteful building with information on the war in easy to read sections. It is free to visit. There is also a section of the berlin wall next to it.

This place was chilling and a must see on your visit to Berlin. Knowing that some of the most evil people in history have walked where you are standing is scary.

Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can
both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central
neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the
1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around
Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s,
rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a
carefree life here. An old hospital even became a
hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today

The closest stations are Potsdamer Platz (U + S bahn), Kochstraße (U bahn) and Anhalter Bahnhof (S bahn) which are more or less equidistant.

No it is not a museum per se, more like an outdoor exhibition and you don't need to book.
