Allied Museum

The Allied Museum offers a glimpse into an important piece of German history. Opened in 1998, it shows and documents the 50 years of occupation, from the Cold War to the collapse of communism and the reunification of the country. "Allied" was the term used for the French, British and American forces from 1948 onwards, while the Soviet forces were no longer recognised as "Allies" after the Berlin Blockade and the humanitarian airlift. In addition to numerous military items, weapons, everyday objects, photographs and sound recordings, the outdoor exhibition is of particular interest. Here you can find an aeroplane (Hastings TG 503), a dining car of a French military train, the original control cabin of Checkpoint Charlie, parts of the Berlin Wall and a watchtower. The highlight is an approximately 7-metre long tunnel section, the so-called "spy tunnel", which was built in 1954/55 by the British and American secret services to tap enemy telephone booths. Come with us and learn more about this period of German and Berlin history.
