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).

DDR Museum
1 Karl-Liebknecht-Strasse (on the Spree River opposite the Berlin Cathedral)
Tel. 030/84712373
Open daily 10am-8pm (Saturday until 10pm)

Some pretty designs alright. Doing the painting yourselves is more fun but a good place for ideas for more design is this site of wahooart.com, that I use to help with my wall decorations.
You can browse for a painting like this The tree, by 20th century Czech artist, Frantisek Kupka, for example, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LHUQV , that can be ordered on line and delivered to you.
