If you are in Berlin and you are interested in WWII (and postWWII) this is where you should come. Cells, garage, interrogation rooms, interrogation techniques etc. you should go with the blonde lady (Christine) on tour (tickets cost 6euro). Enjooy!

A really good tour, I definitely recommend it for everyone with the slightest interest in modern German history. The guide (Dora) was really good at telling the story of the prison (and her English was perfect). The prison has a really scary story but it...More

We found this from looking at things to do in Berlin. We'd have no idea of this place otherwise as it's not advertised anywhere and as others have said, is really in the sticks. The easiest way to get here is from Alexanderplatz take the...More

Why don't you email them? I emailed them about something else and they replied very promptly. Look at their website for the address.
