Museums and exhibitions

Like the city of Berlin, the small village of Mödlareuth, also known as "Little Berlin", was divided by a wall on the border between Bavaria and Thuringia during the Cold War.

One part of the village was in West Germany, the other in East Germany, and the German-German Museum Mödlareuth tells the story of this division, the background and the effects on the inhabitants of the village. To mark the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, it was decided in 2019 to provide the museum with a new building, which is expected to be completed in 2025.

facts and fiction won a multi-stage competition to design the new permanent exhibition and revise the outdoor exhibition.
