Must see when in Berlin! Amazing guides with a lot of knowledge about what happened in there. The political prisoners where there in months and moths without ANY form of contact to their people. Insane and very very scary!

This is an old prison used after WW2 by an organism of the GDR called the Stassi (short for State's Security Ministerium). You can visit the museum which costs nothing but the real interesting thing is the guided tour through the prison. The guide is...More
