German Spy Museum

The German Spy Museum Berlin gives a unique insight into the gloom of espionage right where the Wall once divided the city. Visitors are welcome to use the most recent multimedia-based technology to detect all the bizarre and sneaky methods of agents and secret services. An exciting time travel from spying in ancient Bible history to the present and future right in the middle of the capital of spies.

Decipher a range of secret codes, negotiate the laser-beam obstacle course, see how secure your password is and hack in to your favourite websites!


Scouts, snitches, agents, coders and fakers

belong to the oldest professions in the world. No place would be better-suited for a spectacular tribute to the protagonists of this international gloom of espionage than Potsdamer Platz in the centre of Berlin, which for a long time was considered to be the Capital of Spies. There, in 2015, the German Spy Museum Berlin opened in a 3.000 m² (32.000 sq ft) exhibition space.

Hundreds of historical artefacts bring history to life: Hitler’s Enigma cipher machine, classic secret agent equipment such as the bra camera, shoe bugs, glove pistols, killer umbrellas and a range of original props from the James Bond films. Numerous top agents tell their breath-taking stories.


Break the codes and survive the laser-beam obstacle course

Learn about the second-oldest job in the world using cutting-edge multi-media technology. 200 HD-Screens, 3D glasses and impressive projections enable you to immerse yourself in the world of spies and secret agents.
