Wünsdorf Diorama

Diorama in honor of the Red Army

Until 1994, a diorama in the former military headquarters of the Soviet Army in Germany housed 'The Battle of Berlin,' a thirty-six-meter long and seven-meter-high painting that weighed more than a ton.

The painting spanned a large part of the circular complex, giving viewers the feeling of looking at a three-dimensional image. Such dioramas are mainly found in China and Russia. A passerel connects the diorama with the officer's residence.

When the last Russian soldiers left after the GDR collapsed, they took the canvas with them and the diorama was left empty.

The building from the 1970s is protected as a monument but has not yet been given a new purpose.
