Tranenpalast Reviews & Ratings

  • Nice little museum to stop into to. The exhibition is informative and gives the participant an idea of what it was like back in the day. It’s free so that’s cool. There are free bathrooms clean and easily accesible. The location also offers plenty of places to grab a quick bite to eat and an interchange of subway stops.

  • Very interesting exhibition. Well worth the visit to see how crossing through the border controls was organised. Much more than just that though - interesting exhibits and videos about life and the east west divide and the politics of it all. You can spend a good couple of hours here.

  • Very informative free museum, right next to Friedrichstraße train station. Makes you understand how a border crossing looked like before the Wall fell. The museum is in the former border control building, so it has an interesting feel to it.

  • Very nice and interesting museum about the times of the German division. The exhibition is really interesting and shows how the border cross was in the station of Friedrichstraße back then. Not only the entry but an audio guide in several languages and usage of lockers are free.

  • Very informative, thorough and interesting museum! You can not only learn about "Wall history" from the exhibited documents and things, but also listen to the interviews and stories of real people who lived it
