  • Information for your tour

    Please note that it is only possible to view the extensive prison complex on an official guided tour. The tour team has more than 90 freelance members, many of whom 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 insight into a broad spectrum of political persecutions in the GDR. As part of the Memorial's civic education programme, our guides are also available for longer eyewitness interviews.

    Please note that the tours through the former Stasi prison are not completely accessible for people with disabilities or the elderly. Visits with walkers, wheelchairs or buggies can provide obstacles in the historical buildings. We appreciate your understanding. No pets allowed.
