All reviews stasi prison english tour interrogation rooms ex prisoners east germany state security first hand tour starts eye opening recent history fascinating insight cold war dark history well worth the effort ticket office two hours interesting place
We came here not knowing what to expect and we were very much impressed. There are guided tours in English which was good, and before this starts you watch a video which updates you with the basic history of east and west Germany and Stasi...More
Sad place. A little bit spookey because of it's history. When you pay at the souvenir shop for the entrance, you are asked to wait at the cafeteria for the group tour. Because it is not allowed to wonder around at the premisses by yourself....More
I ran a school trip to the Stasi Prison last week and due to a mix with the booking, we turned up at the wrong time. The staff were wonderfully accommodating and quickly sorted us out with a guided tour. I'm glad they were able...More
Go to the Stasi museum first, followed by this Stasi prison. Was really interesting and our tour guide spoke excellent english with great enthusiasm. This tour really highlights how live was under the Soviet reins. Make sure you know when the tour of your spoken...More
Really interesting place to visit, with a lot of original features. We attended an English language tour at 12.30 and were finished at about 2.30pm. We had a very well informed female guide (don’t know her name), and although she hadn’t been a prisoner during...More
We arrived at 12:10 to catch the 12:30 guided tour. The process of buying the ticket was simple. The tour begins with a 30-min introduction video. Then we went to the tour through all facilities. It’s always interesting to see and feel a real prison,...More
A little out of the way but well worth the effort, we were fortunate in that our hotel was only 10 minutes tram ride from the prison. What is strange is that you cannot book beforehand, you just turn up and apparently there will be...More
Although not everyone's cup of tea, this visit is certainly one that will bring home the reality of life under the KGB in this STASI prison. The guide was an expert in his field, providing a really chilling insight into the practices that used. Not...More

I don't recall seeing a specific parking lot. We visited between Christmas and New Year's, and there was plenty of street parking near the entrance. As others have said, this is a side street in a residential area so... More

Hi there. You CAN visit and take a tour, even if you're not in a group. No pre-booking is required, just turn up (a bit in advance) and get your ticket from the admission office which is next to the cafe and shop. When they say touring in a group only, they just mean you can't wander around alone unless it's part of a tour.
The latest tour times in English from my visit a few weeks ago are as follows: March - October every day at 2.30pm. During the winter season, English tours are only available Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 2.30pm. Tours in German happen everyday with one starting pretty much every hour.
The tour costs 5 euros (very worth it!) and lasts a couple of hours.
It's in a bit of a dead zone when it comes to the subway system. The nearest S-bahn station is Landsberger Allee which is a 15 - 20 walk away. The M5 and M6 trams stop nearer by, and are roughly a 10 minute walk away. M5 stop is called 'Freienwalder strasse' and the M6 stop is 'Genslerstrasse'. If you're not a fan of walking or get lost easily then I would recommend a taxi!
The address is Genslerstrasse 66, 13055, Berlin.
Hope that helps!
