Various border museums and memorials recall the inner German border. Fences, border installations and military equipment are on show and personal histories of escape and compulsory resettlement come to life at the exhibitions. All the museums offer themed tours, seminars and educational programmes.
The 25th anniversary of the Peaceful Revolution
2014 sees the 25th anniversary of the Peaceful Revolution and in 2015, 25 years of German unity will be celebrated. Thuringia has borders with Lower Saxony, Hesse and Bavaria and so offers a variety of different ways of focusing on this topic, with border museums, memorials, hiking and cycle routes but also special museums.
