 Dear visitors,

the restaurant Domklause was closed in March 2015.

We are happy to inform you that we now have 30% more space for our Museum and now have a fully interactive and accurate reproduction of a DDR flat from the 1980s, including five fully furnished rooms, in the former restaurant area. You will get to know the private habits of the DDR population by playing, opening drawers and closets and examining well-known and surprising items as well as by looking behind the scenes of an average family household. We invite you to touch everything!

Explore an authentic DDR flat.

A journey to the everyday life of the DDR.

The DDR Museum invites you to a journey to the everyday life of the DDR. Thanks to our unique digital simulator you can drive a typical DDR car, try dancing Lipsi and get to know the political structures of the former socialist state.
