Panoptikum - Waxworks Museum in Hamburg
Over 100 personalities from history, culture, showbiz and sport are faithfully reproduced out of wax. Even their clothes and accessories are carefully chosen to suit the individual. Opened in 1879, the Wax Museum of Hamburg is highly considered, it’s also the oldest and biggest collection in Germany.
In this beautiful 50’s building, visitors can see Goethe and Schiller, Napoleon, Cleopatra and Old Fritz (that’s the Germans’ nickname for Frederick II, or the Great), and also Picasso, Uwe Seeler, Steffi Graf, Harry Potter, James Dean, Elvis Presley and the Beatles, Ladi Di and Michael Jackson to mention just a few.
The old doctor's office makes your skin crawl, you can see a breech birth (just wax figures, of course), a newborn baby, skin rashes, a collection of glass eyes and much more.
