Seelow Heights Memorial Site and Museum – In order never to forget

The memorial site at the Seelower Höhen (heights) recalls the biggest battle of the Second World War on German soil. In the spring of 1945, hundreds of thousands of soldiers, 14,000 pieces of artillery, 5,000 armoured vehicles and the same number of aeroplanes confronted each other in the Oderbruch area and on the mountain range.
The museum provides information on the battles between the river Oder and Berlin in the winter and spring of 1945 and in the outdoor area of the museum soldiers’ memorials and gravestones line the path. Apart from the exhibition, slide shows and films are provided in several languages. A museum shop offers literature on the Second World War, the Brandenburg history, hiking and cycling maps, travel guides and much more. An extensive archive is available to visitors to the memorial site who are interested in military history, providing contemporary witness reports and documents. The Seelower Höhen are regarded as one of the most important meeting places for the analysis of the horrors of the Second World War.
