The Borderland Museum Eichsfeld is located on the site of the former border crossing point Duderstadt/Worbis between East and West Germany. The exhibitions are spread across various historical buildings and along the former death strip, today’s “Green Belt”.
The exhibitions deal with different aspects of the German division, focusing on the GDR border regime and the everyday life of East and West Germans living in the border area, as well as the Peaceful Revolution and the border opening (“Fall of the wall”) in 1989.
The following drone flight takes you past former passport and customs control buildings and along the museum’s Borderland Trail, where the “Iron Curtain” of the late 1980s is preserved.
Our new exhibition 'eye_land' displays photo art from young refugees in today's Germany
