Forum of Contemporary History

This museum in central Leipzig provides a space to engage with and reflect upon contemporary German history from the end of World War II to the present day.

The modern, visitor-friendly exhibition looks back at the history of political repression, opposition and resistance, and at the peaceful revolution that unfolded in a divided Germany and at everyday life in the GDR. The exhibition also recounts the reunification process of the past twenty years.

Opening times:

Tuesday-Friday 9am-6pm, Saturday & Sunday 10am-6pm
