Berlin: DDR Museum Tickets

1. Berlin: DDR Museum Tickets

Visit the DDR Museum, where the history of East Germany (often called by its German acronym, DDR, instead of the English, GDR) is made tangible. See reconstructions of DDR apartments and learn about daily life under the communist regime. The items in the museum are not hidden away in cases, but wait to be properly discovered. You can pull out drawers, open cupboards, reach inside and browse. Climb into an original Trabant, turn the ignition – and off it goes. Experience an exciting simulated voyage through the prefabricated districts accompanied by the typical Trabant noises. Turn on the television in a typical East German living-room and rifle through the Karat wall-cupboard, one of the most evocative home-furnishings of the GDR era. Smell the spices on the shelf and see the pressure-cooker on the stove. Watch news-reports sitting in an original cinema stall, or dance to Lipsi, East Germany's answer to rock-and-roll.

Getting a transport pass in advance is paramount for a relaxed trip. Buying the pass online was easy, and finding the office at the airport as well. The guide and the map I received with it were good help. I would highly recommend to use this service.

nice old pieces, my friend was very enthusiastic and also for me - not so much interested ;-) it was a cool experience to see these old machines

Really very interesting to have seen live how life was back then in the GDR and the espionage sometimes went off. Definitely worth a visit.

Friendly and informative staff. Beautiful display of these classic motorbikes.

Very interesting museum - very interactive and lots to see
