Sure, following the path of the Berlin wall is a historical must. And then there is the Ishtar Gate
at the Pergamon Museum. And no one is anyone without giving a speech in front of the
Brandenburg Gate. But often overlooked amidst the high culture and imposing monuments of
Berlin is another culturally significant museum – the David Hasselhof museum.
Hasselhof’s performance of “Looking for Freedom” at the 1989 New Year’s Celebrations in
Berlin is seen by some Germans as having contributed to reunification, which trumps the rest
of the world’s memories of years in skimpy beach-wear.
There is also the German-Russian Museum, which focuses on the Red Army’s efforts during
WWII to stop the “fascist plague”.
