Towards the end of World War II, scientists from the Kaiser Wilhelm-Institute for physics had to leave Berlin because of the bomb raids. In an ancient beer cellar underneath the castle church they built a nuclear reactor. This cellar was converted into the Atomkellermuseum. A replica of the reactor – the original reactor was dismantled by US troops after the war – and presentation boards invite you to a trip into the beginnings of nuclear research under the general direction of Werner Heisenberg and Otto Hahn.
The Atomkellermuseum is located below the castle church in the Pfluggasse next to the market place.
