We learned about Moedlareuth from the German TV drama "Tannbach" and decided to go and see the real 'Little Berlin'.

The city IS the museum - or the museum is the city. It is absolutely worth visiting. We would have liked more information in the exhibitions, so it can be recommended to do your reading beforehand ('Tannbach' is also worth seeing!).

Also most of the text is exclusively in German. We didn't find that as a problem, but if you cannot understand any German, it might be. :-)

Please note that is partly an open air museum, which means that it is better to visit the village on a not rainy day.

If you cannot visit Berlin, visit this museum to understand the divided Germany from 1949 until 1990.

Mödlareuth, a tiny town, was divided in two. The eastern side was the Soviet occupied side; the western side was controlled by the Americans.

Entry is subsidised, only 3 euro per person. An brochure is available in English. Start with the film in the museum theatre. We asked for the English version, so waited for the German version to be completed before ours was run.

The divided village is used to explain the issues faced by those in East Germany. The outside exhibits have explanations in German and English. Those inside the museum are only in German.

For the active there is almost 4 Km of heritage trail/border wall.

Grown up in Germany during the Cold War, we paid some visits during that period of time to the Inner German border.
Being able to walk in this piece of history on both sides and inside the fortifications is special indeed. A must go for anyone with interest in this important part of German history

Museum is small, but with a lot of information. Many pictures about people, documents and also a movie in French, English and German language is available.

Staff is incredible helpful.

Have been to a few crossing points or memorial sites and this is by far the best. Excellent preserved stretch of wall, with different models of the wall from the different phases of its creation. Cheap and effective museum which one could make decent sense of even without displays in English- to be fair, the walk through the site and its artefacts is in English too, as is an introductory film. The way a single small community was slashed in two is very striking.

Our visit to the Deutsch-Deutsches museum today was our last sightseeing trip that included Dachau Concentration Camp and 2 days in Nuremberg. As a non German speaker all other visits had to be done with an audio guide which took away from the enjoyment and learning somewhat. The museum offers guides tours in English if booked ahead which we did. Our guide was brilliant and made our trip a very entertaining and informative one. He asked us how long we had and we said as long as he wanted so we were there 3 hours but to be honest we would have been happy to sit and talk to him for hours. It is a shame that the other museums we visited didn't have a guide like him as it would have enriched those visits immensely. I learnt a lot about Germany today and would return again. Both of my daughters enjoyed themselves.

Much better than the 'Disneyland' "Check Point Charlie" show in Berlin.
Conveys a feeling of having the wall in your face. The people here were still able to look out over it.
The gradual tighter and tighter closing down, and locking up families, over the years gets to you. Very sad!

This museum is a important piece of history which is preserved here making the german german border visible to the generation which was born fortunately to late to experience it by them selves.

This is one of the few places where history comes alive. The little town is actually on the border between the states of Bavaria and Thuringia. It was called "Little Berlin" by the Americans, as the town was divided between east and west, just like Berlin was. There is a Watch Tower, one of those used by the East Germans to ensure people did not escape into the West. The museum is divided in separate areas where you can see different things such as photographs, videos and various war related films, and, the most exciting perhaps, a section full of a large number of old cars a tank and other military vehicles. Quite exciting indeed, and also quite eerie.

The place is definitely worth the visit if one wants to learn about the post-war period of Germany.
For an extremely low fare of 3€ pp one can visit the exhibition on the history of the village that was divided into a western and eastern part, sees different types of vehicles used in that days, can watch a documentary about the daily life of the people and gets a tour of the walled area.
Despite having minimum English translations at the exhibition, the tour guide who spoke English made up for it. He was really friendly, engaging and answered all our questions!
It was highly informative and we would definitely recommend a visit!
