German Resistance Memorial Center

This building is the former headquarters of the Wehrmacht where in the night of 20 July 1944 von Stauffenberg and three other officers were executed after the failed bomb-attack on Hitler.

On the first floor of the building is a permanent exposition about the German resistance in the Second World War.
