Between 1933 and 1945, the centres of national-socialist terror, namely the Gestapo with its own prison, the SS headquarters, the SS Security Service (SD) and the Reichssicherheitshauptamt (Main Office for State Security) were located on the site that today hosts the exhibition “Topography of Terror”, next to the Martin-Gropius building and not far from the Potsdamer Platz.
This is where the new exhibition “Topography of Terror” can also be seen. It documents the history of the institutions of terror located in the immediate vicinity of the Nazi government district and of the crimes originating from there. A second permanent exhibition focuses on the role of Berlin as capital of the "Third Reich" (Spiring until Autumn).

One of the few original remainders of the Berlin Wall is also part of the site. With more than 800,000 visitors a year, “Topography of Terror” is one of the most frequented memorial sites and museums in Berlin.
