Berlin‘s history has played a major role in shaping the city today, and one of the best places to learn more about one period of that history is at the DDR Museum, which details what life was like for East Berliners living under Soviet rule in the GDR.

The DDR is a private museum located on the River Spree in the center of Berlin. It opened in 2006 and in 2008 was nominated for the European Museum of the Year Award. Though it’s not the most popular museum in Berlin, it’s one of the best, and helps bring to life an important part of the city’s history – a part that many visitors don’t know much about.
