Berliner Gruselkabinett, Berlin

Berliner Gruselkabinett, Berlin

Berliner Gruselkabinett is a chamber of horrors in Berlin with just enough thrill to make anyone's hair stand on end. Housed in the former World War II bunker near Anhalter Bahnhof—horrid as it is, without any creep show—it is rather scary just to walk down its damp and dim tunnels. From time to time, the maze of tunnels resound the bloodchilling groans, which makes it definitely not a place for the faint-hearted. The first floor is given to the horrors of medieval medicine, compared to which the monsters and skeletons on the second floor look like a joke. In the basement there are exhibits recounting the bunker's fascinating history, allowing visitors a glimpse into the life of Berlin at the height of World War II, when the shelter served as accommodation to tens of thousands of war-weary civilians.
