I found this to be an absolutely fascinating insight into the Stasi and how they impacted life in the DDR. Yes, it's all in German, as it is mostly made up of original documents, but the audio guide is available in English (and other languages)...More

Unique: Here they worked, spyed, oberved, controlled the people of the region. Everything orginal. Even the smell of the rooms reminds of this black age. What dicatorship means for common people, here you can feel and experience it. Highly recommended!

Very informative place, even if you do not speak a word of German. This place was captured by the people of Leipzig in 1989 and it was kept as a museum since. It is in the city center, just a few minutes walk from the...More
