Experience great moments in broadcasting history as well as how the medium of television developed in East and West Germany, then venture through rooms full of famous props, costumes, set-designs and projection screens.

This fascinating exhibition is contained within the former cellars of Gestapo HQ, illustrating the terrors and crimes of the Nazi era. The new documentation centre and other exhibitions are presented in both English and German.

Built for the 1936 Olympics, this is an excellent example of Nazi architecture. This is where the black American athlete, Jesse Owens, won four gold medals, supposedly infuriating Hitler because of his race.

Here, your group will see how East and West Berlin were divided for 28 years. The Bernauerstrasse Memorial allows students to see remains of the Berlin Wall as well as an exhibition on Berlin during the Cold War. The East Side Gallery is the longest surviving stretch of the wall and is nearly 1.5km long – and includes the work of various artists and political cartoonists.

Located at the very heart of the city on the Alexanderplatz, the Berlin TV tower is part of German history: in the sixties the East German government had the TV tower built to demonstrate the strength and efficiency of the socialist party system. Today the tower, Berlin’s highest structure, shapes the skyline of the German capital city and has fantastic views - and serves as a landmark of the reunited Germany. Your group can pinpoint the many landmarks and attend the free exhibition.

Experience more than 120 life-like wax figures from different zones, including World Politics, Sports, TV Studio, Music Megastars and Celebrity Party as well as 11 new iconic characters in the new and unique Star Wars exhibition. Then explore authentic walk-in sets inspired by key scenes from the Star Wars Saga and become a Jedi Knight next to Yoda in the Council of the Jedi!
