Berlin's Erotik Museum





Just off Kurfürstendamm, the main shopping boulevard of Berlin, is a quirky museum that has a fascinating collection of art from various countries depicting sex. It is entirely in keeping with Berlin's tradition of being one of the most liberal cities in Europe. 

The museum isn't large, spread over 2 floors of a non-descript building, the ground floor of which has sex shops, but its contents are so engrossing that you could spend two hours in there.

It was very dim inside, not because it chose to appear sleazy, which it wasn't, but because some of the prints were old and delicate. Flash photography, obviously, wasn't allowed, and so it was a challenge taking these pictures.

The museum does not allow those under the age of 18 to enter. Viewers of this website, if aged under 18, are likewise advised to hit the "Back" button.

Erotik Museum's address is: Joachimstaler Strasse 4, (that's house number 4 on Joachimstaler Street) and is open from 9 a.m. to midnight.
