Remembering terror and persecution – the documentation centre Topographie des Terrors is one of the most-visited places of remembrance in Berlin.
It was a good experience overall because there was a lot of information so if you don't know anything about that time period, after you go to the Topography of Terror you will be a scholar. It is also very helpful that the audioguides are free on mobile phones and admission is free as well.
The site destined to become what is now known as Topography of Terror. Here at this location, from 1933 until 1945 – the 12 years of National Socialist rule – were the offices of some of the most feared organisations in Europe, if not the world.
You’ve probably seen The Topography of Terror on just about every “Things to do in Berlin” list, but what exactly is it?

Topography of Terror is a museum that sits on the former Gestapo headquarters.

Chances are this is on your list of things to do in Berlin.
