Bike Touring Highlight
From 1951 to 1990, this was the penal institution Berlin I, the mostly crowded central male prison in East Berlin, where tens of thousands of men were imprisoned, many of them for political reasons. Today, a permanent open-air exhibition is accessible around the clock on the newly-used site of the former prison. The history of state punishment and repression on the site dating back to 1878 has been prepared in an app in German and English that accompanies a 40-minute tour with an audio guide. The app also offers tours in easy language and also a playful variant for children.
