Berlin's New DDR Museum Lets You Experience Life in Former East Germany
Berlin's new DDR Museum presents everday life in the former communist East Germany in a playful and interactive way. All aspects of life in the former communist state of East Germany (the "DDR") are featured. You'll sit in a tiny Trabant automobile (pictured here), check out communist-era concrete slab buildings, relax in an authentic DDR living room and learn about the Stasi (the secret police). The DDR Museum will be featured in Andy's upcoming Best of Germany book (to be released early next year).
