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.
Sites of the Peaceful Revolution
Thuringia was part of former East Germany. Where today travellers cross invisible border lines with Lower Saxony, Hesse or Bavaria, until November 1989 insourmountable border installations had blocked the way. Along what had been a no-go area for a long time, hikers and cyclists now enjoy the beautiful landscape. What is left of Cold War times are a number of highly interesting memorial points and museums.
