I decided to buy a ticket for the Bunker Tour because it was my last opportunity to visit an attraction before departing from Berlin. The ticket for tour lasts for 90 minutes. There is a tour guide to take you inside the bunker and explain about its history and show you some different rooms. There are a lot of interesting... More

It is a surviving above ground Air Raid Shelter next to completely destroyed Anhalter Banhof, that's what is unique. And yet, it is not the presented feature of the building. Floor one is a Berlin Story, which is small and completely overpowers the bunker setting, and is not unique (one story on Unter Den Linden and a big one on... More

The museum is really worth a visit. A lot of info about WorldWar and also things about the wall in Berlijn. The bunkertour, you get a lot of explanation but you allmost see nothing. just some empty places inside the bunker. You don't have to visit both places, the museum and the bunker. Different prices for to go in. Museum... More

Loved this museum: set in an old WW2 bunker it sets the scene for the city from the Napoleonic era up to the present day. Lots to see and do and finished with a 25 minute video about the city. Also included in the price is an audio guide in a variety of languages. After visiting we felt we knew... More

This museum is worth a visit - interactive and lots to see. The bunker tour is worth half an hour of your time and something different. The guide was excellent, with very good English. Lots of kids running round mad which was a bit annoying . Overall worth a visit

We had by this time been to a lot of museums , but this one was different. In a real WW2 bunker, it gave a real sense of the conditions that people had to endure. It also showed more graphically the evolution and traumas of Berlin. Well worth a hourc

Very interesting way to get to know more about the history of the city in a real setting. I expected something different, more like a visit to a former bunker, not a sort of museum of German history but I liked it anyway. Audio guide included. Not too expensive (6 euro or 4,5 euro with Berlin Welcome Card)

You can join a tour of this from visiting the Story of Berlin (or infact you could just join this tour) as they don't check for tickets! I think they run tours every hour on the hour and some of the tours are in English. It's very interesting to see and hard to believe this was a real threat only... More

Stumbled upon this place and in we went, good selection of artefacts on display, the waxworks aren't up the usual standards but they're ok, the best bit for me was not realising the staff dress up and scare the living daylights out of you, scary, funny, and really enjoyed this place.

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Kreuzberg
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 you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
