The DDR Museum shows the everyday life and culture and the exhibits mainly come from private households. Exhibition is divided into theme-based areas as “Scarcity”, “School”, “Youth Culture”, “Leisure” and “State and Political Party”. The interactive exhibition encourages you to touch the exhibits and even try them out. Open the drawers and cabinets and find everyday objects and documents from those times. You can even watch some typical DDR news on a TV or sit behind the wheel of a Trabant car.

Visit the Berlin Friedrichstrasse Station. It was a major border crossing between East and West parts of Berlin. Pass by the Branderburg Gate, one of the most recognizable sites of Berlin. When the city was divaded, the gate stood in the center of the border area and could not be crossed. Stroll around the Potsdamer Platz.
