Berlin and its monuments

The cultural-historical exhibition shows political monuments which were once part of Berlin’s urban landscape but have been removed.

Denkmäler der Siegesallee – Denkmäler der Siegesallee im Stadtgeschichtlichen Museum Spandau.

The permanent exhibition opened in April 2016 in the former Provisions Depot. Some of the most important exhibits are the group of monuments of the Siegesallee built between 1898 to 1901 depicting the Brandenburg-Prussian rulers, the Zehnkämpfer (Decathlete) designed by Arno Breker and characterised by National Socialism, and the head of the monumental Lenin statue unveiled in 1970 at today’s Platz der Vereinten Nationen in Friedrichshain.

What is normally not allowed in a museum, is possible here – you can touch most of the objects!

Please note:
Due to the current pandemic, no public tours of the exhibition will be offered until further notice. It is still possible to book private guided tours through the Museum Service.

Runtime: from April 2016
