Encircling the capital city of Berlin, the region of Brandenburg was fought over fiercely during WWII. The areas of former battlefields are now brimming with historic sites where you can further your knowledge of German history. In the town of Seelow, you will find a memorial and museum recalling the Battle of the Seelow Heights. In and around Berlin, different documentation centres and museums retrace the Battle of Berlin, the last major battle of the war. Visit the Allied Museum to recall Germany’s rich past, from the defeat and the occupation to the division of East and West Germany during the Cold War. Discover two moving places where terror is tangible at the Topography of Terror and the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe (Holocaust Memorial). The Jewish Museum serves as a reflection site on Jewish history, also delving into the more current topics of diversity and migration in Germany.
