Since 1970, the famous exhibition of wax figures has also been held in other cities. In 1970 the first branch opened in Amsterdam, in 2008 Madame Tussauds opened in Berlin near the Brandenburg Gate in the street Unter den Linden. In the meantime there are branches in more than 20 cities around the world, in Germany there is the wax museum Madame Tussauds only in Berlin. In Austria there is a branch in Vienna.

Wax figures of prominent persons in life size are exhibited. Such figures look very real. You almost have the feeling that they are living people.

So you can see yourself with Angela Merkel, Heidi Klum, Boris Becker or Franz Beckenbauer.
