The Topography of Terror is the permanent exhibition of the Gestapo, SS and Reich Security main office on Wilhelm- and Prinz-Albrecht-Straße, in the heart of Berlin-Mitte. Tomorrow morning there will be a special free tour for Circus guests to the Topography of Terror, where a guide from the foundation will lead us through the five main sections of the exhibition: the Nationalist takeover of power, the Institutions of Terror (SS and Police), Terror, Persecution and Extermination on Reich Territory, SS and Reich Security Office in the Occupied Countries, and the End of the War and the Postwar Era.

The Topography of Terror has long won awards for its sensitive handling of this period of history, and developments over the past couple of years have cemented its place as one of Berlin’s most interesting and, indeed, world class exhibitions. The tour leaves from reception, and although it is free, you will need a public transport ticket. Circus guests who are interested in joining the tour should sign up at reception, as places are limited.
