Fotoautomat booths are old school passport photo booths. For two euros you get four black and white passport size photos on a strip.
These are not modern digital prints, but real photographs. It's the best fun you can have in Berlin for two euros!
There is one opposite the Circus Hostel on Rosenthaler Platz and one at the top of Kastanienallee.
A new museum situated in the most appropriate place - opposite the Palast der Republic, and a stone's throw from the TV Tower. Small but well designed (featuring model Trabi, of course!). Perfect if you're short on time but still want to find out more about everyday life in the GDR without getting too political. Very hands on and interactive - factual but kitsch and with a sense of humour!
