If you want to know how it looked like to live in Berlin during the DDR period, this is the place. The DDR Museum is a well known museum in the centre of Berlin, located in the former governmental district of East Germany, right on the river Spree. Its exhibition shows the daily life in the Deutsche Demokratische Republik or DDR. It is a sort of interactive museum and one of the most-visited attractions in the German capital. Take a journey in time and see, touch, feel and experience the actual conditions of a long-defunct system accompanied by unique artifacts, futuristic technology and a prize-winning design.
You will find the DDR Museum in the City-Quartier DomAquarée, on the Spreepromenade.
