Dokumentationszentrum in Prora

Located between the cultural area (now the M3 disco) and the entrance hall in Prora is the “Dokumentationszetrum”.  This documentation centre contains a number of exhibits connected to the building complex in Prora  and is well worth a visit.

It starts with a film which lasts 33 minutes about the history and construction of the complex. Outside the small theatre is a model of what the completed building would have looked like.

If you are there at the right time (and have paid the €2 supplemental charge) you can join at tour at this point. The tours start at 11.45am and 2.30pm.  The tour starts by explaining the model and then goes outside the building. It takes you through areas of the grounds that you may otherwise not discover on your own and uses photos taken during and after construction to show you what it once looked like. [Read more…]
