Make the most of your visit to the Lindenstrasse Memorial Site. Visitors can explore the memorial site and the permanent and special exhibitions either on their own with an audio guide or by joining a public guided tour.
The audio guide in English, Spanish, French, German or German easy language is available to visitors at the cash desk at any time during opening hours (Tue-Sun, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.).
The approximately one-hour audio guide takes visitors over 22 stations through the history of dictatorship and democracy in Potsdam. During National Socialism, the building complex in Lindenstraße served, among other things, as the seat of a so-called “hereditary health court”. After that, first the Soviet secret police and later the Ministry of State Security used the place as a remand prison. In the course of the Peaceful Revolution, a “House of Democracy” was built here.
