Berlin: DDR Museum Tickets

2. 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.

A great way to get around with not a care in the world, we got on wrong trains but no worry as it was all free. We seen a lot of Berlin from Spandau out to Oranienburg and 25% discount on three of the entrance fees to museums we visited. The cost of a taxi back and forward to the airport would haver been more than the 4 day welcome card we bought. All in all I would definitely say get it before you leave home as the train from the airport in to Berlin affords you plenty to see and for me it was a novelty to get on trains and underground transport. I had a great time visiting so many historical sites and hopefully find time for another venture there.

The individual descriptions were very good and also briefly summarized. The rooms gave a really good insight into what it looked like in the GDR. Even the technical presentation was great, e.g. E.g. the doorbells or the little quiz about the GDR anthem.

Our trip was too short . I think we reached break even point but didn’t really save money

This is so worth it if you are gonna be staying in berlin for a couple of days.

Worked absolutely perfectly. Really good way to travel in Berlin.
