Permanent Exhibition

The Historic Site “Topography of Terror.” A Site Tour in 15 Stations

The site tour in 15 stations is designed to complement the permanent indoor exhibition, introducing visitors to the history of the terrain at the actual site.

Information lecterns with photos, documents and 3-D graphics provide an historic overview of the grounds where the most important institutions of National Socialist persecution and terror, the Secret State Police, the Reich SS Leadership and the Reich Security Main Office, were located from 1933 to 1945. An audio guide is also available, providing both a general overview as well as in-depth information at each station.

The tour integrates both the historical remains of the Berlin Wall, which have been designated a historic monument, and parts of the preserved historic sidewalk from Prinz-Albrecht-Straße that was previously not accessible.


The exhibition is presented both in German and English.

An audio guide is available both in German and English and can be borrowed at the information desk.
