Guided tours for non-German groups
The Memorial offers guided tours in English, French, Spanish, Italian, Danish and Norwegian, daily between 9am and 4pm.
Due to the growing demand, groups are requested to register as early as possible.
If you are planning to visit the Memorial as a group, you can register with the Visitors' Service either by phone, letter, or email. The Visitors' Service then appoints a guide for your tour and coordinates the times with you, confirming the planned date of your visit and providing the details for payment. The Visitors' Service also offers a fee-based service for accompanying film teams (permission to film has to be obtained in advance). Therefore please contact the media support service.
Regular admission: Every 25 participants per group pay a fee of 75 Euro.
School groups: Every 25 participants per group pay a fee of 25 Euro.
Please note, that it is only possible to view the extensive prison complex on an official guided tour. The guided tours team has more than 70 freelance members, most of which are former inmates, who also relate the tour to their own experience in the remand prison. Nevertheless it cannot be guaranteed that the tour will be guided by an eyewitness!
Since our tour guides were imprisoned for a variety of reasons during different periods of persecution, they provide an insight into a broad spectrum of political persecution in the GDR. As part of the Memorial's civic education programme, our guides are also available for longer eyewitness interviews.
