Special guided tour in German

The Museum Berlin-Karlshorst is a place of world historical importance: in the museum building, the High Command of the German Wehrmacht signed the unconditional surrender in front of representatives of the Soviet Union, the USA, Great Britain and France on the night of 8-9 May 1945. This followed the general consent to an armistice on May 7th at the American-British headquarters in the French city of Reims.

The surrender at the Soviet headquarters in Berlin-Karlshorst was the ceremonial act that sealed the common victory of the anti-Hitler coalition and with which the Wehrmacht leadership recognized their complete defeat - this ended the Second World War in Europe. The hall where the signing took place has been preserved to this day. It forms the heart of the museum.

The public tour will give you an insight into the history of the historic site and the museum today.
