Gedenkstätte Deutscher Widerstand


The German Resistance Memorial Center

is a site of remembrance, political studies, active learning, documentation, and research. A wide range of activities document and illustrate resistance to National Socialism. The center's goal is to show how individual persons and groups took action against the National Socialist dictatorship from 1933 to 1945 and made use of what freedom of action they had.

Open despite redesign
Activities between July 2013 and July 2014

From July 22, 2013 to July 2014, the German Resistance Memorial Center is undergoing a redesign of its permanent exhibition. The funding is kindly provided by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media and the German Lottery Foundation Berlin.

The German Resistance Memorial Center will remain open during the entire redesign period. On the 3rd floor, we are showing several exhibitions on the subject of resistance against National Socialism.

On the 1st floor, a series of special exhibitions will document particular resistance issues, and in the center’s commemorative courtyard you will find information on the historical site of the attempted coup of July 20, 1944. We apologize that the 2nd floor with the historical rooms will not be accessible during this time.

All groups of more than 8 people require prior registration due to limited space during this period. Please contact us on: +49-(0)30/26 99 50-00. Please bear in mind that groups that do not book our tours or seminars may only be granted access to the exhibitions as space allows. We apologize for any inconvenience.

You are very welcome to book a tour around our exhibitions (maximum 50 people) or a seminar (maximum 20 people) for your group. Please use the relevant registration forms to book. Due to spatial constraints during the redesign, we anticipate waiting times of at least 12 to 16 weeks for tours and seminars. We apologize for this delay.

Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Opening hours and public transport connections are available here.

We look forward to your visit!
