Though I visited the museum by myself (for a very reasonable 6 euros) I found myself thinking what an ideal place it would be for adults with children to come to together. For adults, it has a wealth of memorabilia from both German and global...More

This is a really interesting tour through the history of sport told largely from the German point of view, but even as a Brit I found it fascinating. It starts in ancient Greece then takes you through to the modern day (well, about 2010), and...More
