1
View multiple exhibitionsInside the bunker there are several exhibitions. A visit to the entire museum is worthwhile, especially since a ticket grants you access to both permanent exhibitions on the NS dictatorship as well as 800 years of Berlin. There might also be temporary exhibitions and sights on special topics, which may require their own tickets.

Experience more Berlin historyIf you hurry, you might be out of the bunker after an hour. However, there are other Berlin museums within immediate vicinity if you still want to experience more of the capital's history. The Jewish Museum and Checkpoint Charlie, among others, can be reached on foot from the bunker in about 20 minutes, and public transport will take you to the GDR Museum or Museum Island just as quickly.
3
Grab an audio guideThe cumulative history in the Berlin Story Bunker can certainly seem overwhelming. The audioguide, which guides you through the exhibitions in English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Danish, Dutch, Russian on request, can help.

The Berlin Story Bunker: history vividly presented

The museum in the bunker was initiated by a team with expertise in journalism, film architecture and journalism. With its modern exhibitions, the former air-raid shelter Anhalter Bahnhof now tells the exciting story of the German metropolis.

Permanent exhibition: 'Hitler - How could it happen?'

Over three floors, this multimedia exhibition vividly presents the way of Germany into National Socialism and the Holocaust. Concise text and images document the Nazi seizure of power, the anti-Semitic terror, and the end of World War II. The so-called Documentation Führerbunker includes a model of Adolf Hitler's last refuge as well as a replica of the room in which the dictator still witnessed the liberation of Berlin. In addition, various sources critically portray relevant moments from Hitler's life.

Guided tours on the background of the Anhalter Hochbunker Berlin

The Berlin Story Bunker building was formerly part of the Anhalter railway station and was built as a civilian air raid shelter in 1941. In the last days before the defeat of Nazi Germany, conditions in the completely overcrowded bunker were catastrophic with barely any light and scarce supplies. Within the framework of guided tours, preserved rooms of the air-raid shelter can be visited in the Berlin Story Bunker.

Berlin Story Museum: The city’s history presented in an appealing way

In this section of the former air-raid shelter, called the Berlin Story Museum, countless historical objects in nearly 40 exhibition rooms present a vivid overview of various eras of the German capital. Since 2014, the Berlin Story Museum was run under the motto of '800 Years of Berlin History in One Hour in Ten Languages'. Its focus is on historical turning points that have shaped Berlin in the long term. An audio guide, available in ten languages, is included in the ticket price for this area. Highlights include a miniature model of old Berlin, a focus on the history of the Brandenburg Gate, and film stills from well-known movies that have Berlin as a backdrop.
