Bike Touring Highlight
The building complex, on which formerly the headquarters of the Ministry of State Security (MfS) of the GDR employed more than 7,000 full-time employees, is today a place of enlightenment. For site, archive and exhibition tours or individual tours, it is possible to clearly understand state repression, opposition activities and the peaceful revolution. In the courtyard, the open-air exhibition "Revolution and Fall of the Wall", for which there is an audio guide, documents the peaceful revolution. The Robert Havemann Foundation, which supervises the exhibition, is based on the site with the "Archive of the GDR Opposition". The Stasi Museum is located in House 1, where the work of the Stasi is shown in the exhibition "State Security in the SED dictatorship". The service rooms Erich Mielkes (Head of the Ministry of State Security from 1957 to the end of the GDR) can be visited here. The Stasi documents archive is prepared on the site in the exhibition "Insight into the Secret".
