Very beautiful and interesting build. Entrance is free. Unfortunately the candles were plastic, so if you wanted to light a candle, you would drop a coin to a dispencer and a plastic candle automatically lit. Clearly there just to collect money.

Amazing! A breathtaking example of high baroque and Catholic imagery. It's a remarkable space - it would be wonderful to hear music performed here. So glad we found it!

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.
