The permanent exhibition “The Story of Berlin” at Kurfürstendamm invites visitors to immerse into the history of the German capital in 23 theme rooms. The exhibition includes multimedia elements such as up-to-date animation technology and walk through sets to enable everyone to experience the different phases of the 800 years of the capital’s development, from its trading centre status in the Middle Ages to the Fall of The Berlin Wall.
The Story of Berlin successfully integrates modern exhibition features together with original models and lavishly reconstructed historic facsimiles to help the visitor “feel” the atmosphere of the city’s then and now.
Instead of merely displaying dates and facts about historical personalities, the priority is given to the Berliners and their lifestyle at certain points in history.
Visual elements such as 3D figures and elaborately constructed lightning vividly create the ambiance of the ancient.
A very special feature and a must-see is the nuclear bomb shelter from
the Cold War. It has been constructed for the inhabitants of West Berlin in order to prevent a huge nuclear contagion and now is an impressive reminder of the fear in the days of the Cold War.
Being situated underneath Kurfürstendamm, the shelter can be visited with a tour guide supporting the visitors with striking and at the same time distressing facts and details of the shelter.
Every hour sharp, the tour starts its journey into the past and underground.
Opening hours: Open daily from 10 am to 8 pm.
No entry after 6 p.m. The last guided tour through the nuclear shelter starts at 6 pm.THE STORY OF BERLIN
