  • Can you take, if you long strolls anyway on the Reeperbahn waxworks. Nicely done!

  • The Panopticon is worth a visit in any case! There are also some historical persons in addition to celebrities. Very nicely done. And the price is also unbeatable.

  • From the outside it looked small, but inside it's just a miracle. Mint how much attention to detail made the figures are staggering. Very nice.
