    The "Grenzhus Schlagsdorf - Information Center Inner German Border" is the largest and most important museum institution to commemorate the inner German border in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. It is also the northern information center in the Biosphärenband Elbe-Schaalsee. Based on scientific standards, it documents, investigates and communicates the history of the inner German border between the Baltic Sea and the Elbe from 1945 to 1990 as well as its pre- and post-history.

    Respect for the victims of the GDR border regime is the central starting point of the work, allowing for the conditions, conditions and consequences of the border regime within the SED dictatorship. The history of the border is embedded in a pan-German and European context. One differentiates itself from other "border museums" by a consequent regional reference, places the everyday life of the people on both sides of the border in the center and links the social history with the change of the nature space.

    It collects, preserves and reveals objects and biographical memories of the regional history of the inner German border and makes them publicly usable. The exploration of the history and historical traces in the former border strip are the basis for the education and exhibition work.

    The imparting of the story to young people is particularly important here. In order to cooperate closely with the schools of the region and extracurricular education providers.

    Outdoor:
    The widespread dismantling of the GDR border barriers took place in the early 1990s. Therefore, the idea was born to rebuild elements of the barrier systems from original parts in order to convey a spatial impression of the threatening situation along the inner German border.

    In 2001, the reconstructed facility was opened in the disused gravel pit of Schlagsdorf. There are shortened but in real size border signal and barrier fence, observation tower and border fence I to see the different obstacles. They depict the situation in the 1980s.

    The outdoor area is approximately 500 meters from the Grenzhus and can be walked on during museum opening hours.

    Very nice little exhibition, whose visit is really worthwhile. As a Berlin brick wall child one has grown up with this, here it becomes clear again how perfidious the inner German border was.

    You have to see this exhibition. It gives the visitor exactly the life on the then inner German border in the region. On a bike ride together with the outdoor area a hotspot and important that subsequent generations are reminded of the painful division of Germany.
    Too bad that the museum supervisor / ticket seller was listless or incompetent.
