Very enjoyable. Spent 3-4 hours here mooching around, and having a picnic lunch. The kids really enjoyed the circus skills. Very quiet. A lovely place to have a chill.

We had a lovely day, despite only speaking a bit of French. Plenty to see and do, and the Circus entertainers were fabulous and hilarious, again, even with our very limited French. 10 year old daughter had a great time. We will definitely go back again.

Visited in the summer holidays, fun place to spend a couple of hours. There was enough history and extra children's activities were laid on, which was thoughtful and probably necessary, either way it improved the trip

Interesting little gem. The staff were very helpful. We loved the circus games around the gardens.

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
