Pretty nice camping spot. Directly at the big sea. Nice spots with half Gras half asphalt and the toilets were clean nearly all the time. Oven and showers are free of charge and there are dishwashers - tremendously nice! But for a rainy day we took one of the cottages (150€) which was quiet expensive and nobody told us, that we have to clean them afterwards. The service stuff who came to our spot on the next day was very unfriendly while telling us, that we have to clean NOW. The spa area was nice.

Great experience on all levels. Good service and availability. Good activity options for kids. Great view. Quite clean place and good looking natural area. The pool was good too and we even used the lake for swimming. It's not deep at all.

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.
