DDR Museum + Body Worlds Berlin
The DDR Museum is just 700 metres (half of a mile) from Berlin’s Body Worlds, which is why some tourists prefer to explore them on the same day.
At the DDR museum, you can view hundreds of unique relics from Germany’s socialist history in the DDR Museum.
This experience delves into well-known East Berlin issues, including the Stasi and the Wall, and ordinary life for DDR residents.
Berlin TV Tower + Body Worlds Berlin
The Berliner Fernsehturm, often known as the Berlin TV Tower, was built in the 1960s by the German Democratic Republic’s administration (GDR).
It is Germany’s highest tower, standing 368 metres (1207 feet) tall and visible throughout most of Berlin.
Since the Body Worlds Berlin is in the basement of the TV Tower, many tourists buy the combo ticket and explore both on the same day.
