Madame Tussauds in Berlin, Germany

Do you want to see famous personalities from all over the world from royal figures to film stars, sports stars and the like? I know it is very impossible to see them in real but if you happened to visit any Madame Tussauds wax museum, for sure you will see a lot.

During my travel in Europe like in London, Amsterdam and in Berlin, I had seen the buildings of these wax museums. I had also seen one in Las Vegas during my vacation in 2008. It was only in Madame Tussauds London where I had the chance to go inside the museum. It was an interesting experience seeing wax figures of famous people from all over the world. Madame Tussauds has been a major tourist attraction in cities where it is located.

Madame Tussauds in Berlin, the capital city of Germany. This was taken during my visit last February 2011. I miss going inside here because we are only given 20 minutes to see the sights near here like the Branderburg Gate. This wax museum is located in Unter den Linden, a famous boulevard in Berlin.

It was founded by Marie Tussaud, born Anna Maria Grosholtz (1761–1850) in Strasbourg, France. She was married to François Tussaud in 1795 which gave this museum a Madame Tussaud’s name.
