Zeitgeschichtliches Forum Leipzig Reviews
A huge museum; one side devoted to West German perspectives on the DDR and the other with information and artefacts from the DDR. Also films about post-unification and temporary exhibitions, all for..... more »
this miraculous museum somehow manages to immerse you - about as far as you'd ever want to be immersed - in the GDR and make you feel both its oppression and, somehow, its loss. A true experience. more »
Extraordinary interesting museum and a must visit in Leipzig. Free entrance and well-thought exhibitions make us turn every time we visit the city! 10/10, thumbs up!
A must for any German that wants to remember the DDR times and not all was bad. It is a complete FREE ACCESS. Donations are welcome. It goes over three levels and even I got chills and some bit of tears in my eyes. To remember such historic event. Leipzig is rich of history and beauty.
