Entrance to Hohenschönhausen Prison

When we first came here, 4 or 5 years ago, you had to pass through this gate and into the room behind to buy tickets. It was pretty horrible, as if we were being admitted as prisoners.

 

Nowadays the chap standing in the doorway will send you back onto the street and round the corner to the visitors' centre, where you can also buy cakes and postcards.

 

It's still a grim place and this spot, where you get the first glimpse of steel bars, really makes your heart sink.
