It's a post-war replica in a museum. In the top picture the gun is upside down. IIRC it was destroyed by Allied bombing during WWII.

Sturmpanzer A7V - First of the Panzers by Strasheim & Hundleby, Tankograd publishers, 2010, pages 98 - 99.

Yes, it was built in the 1930s and destroyed when the Zeughaus was bombed.

@James: I know. I also have seen this pics before in a German Modelling Magazine.

But it seems that TankLibrary doesn't know the Hundleby and Strasheim. So maybe some pics are on the market?

The posted photos are clearly from a publication - all those dots in the images, especially the second image.

On the second photo, the tank has no name and no Iron Cross!

Yes. Two different exhibitions, but definetly the same tank.

The gun is mounted differently in each photo. Perhaps it was removable when transporting the tank to different exhibition locations.

This information comes from the Curator of the German tank museum in Munster Ralf Raths This is the Zeughaus in Berlin. From 1932 onwards, there was a permanent exhibition on the First World War; this exhibition became far bigger in 1936. The A7V model was part of this exhibition; the photo was taken by Hein Fremke in 1936. The objects were dispersed in 1940, because Hitler had decided in 1939 that the objects shall be distributed to the 3 army museums in Dresden, Berlin and München. What became of the replica, I have no idea.
