Madame Tussauds is the ultimate wax museum with locations the world over. Madame Tussauds Berlin has a wide variety of life-like wax figures made to look like celebrities, including actors such as Johnny Depp and Julia Roberts, and musicians such as Rihanna and the Beatles. Wax exhibits also include politicians such as Angela Merkel and Barack Obama, sports stars such as Muhammad Ali and Mesut Özil, and historical figures such as Albert Einstein and Ludwig van Beethoven. There's even a section of superheros like Spiderman and Shrek.
There's also a behind-the-scenes area where visitors can get a closer look at how the figures are made. It's a complex process starting with measuring and photographing the person who will be sculpted. Great care is taken to ensure the eye color, hair color and style, skin color and even the teeth are as accurate as possible.
Madame Tussauds is a fun place where visitors can walk among the celebrities and have their photo taken with the stars. On average, visits take about an hour and a half.
Madame Tussauds Berlin is open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., except in August when they are open until 8 p.m. Last admission is one hour before closing time. They are located at Unter den Linden 74 near Brandenburg Gate.
