It was nice in the Panoptikum itself. The online tickets didn't save us any time. First we had to exchange the online vouchers for real tickets at the cash desk (waiting time 20 minutes) and then we had to queue up with the real tickets (waiting time again 20 minutes). That wasn't great. We could have bought on site. Despite all that, it was a nice experience with nice employees and beautiful figures.

First of all, I have to say that the figures really look almost real. It was very exciting. At the reception you could also borrow a hearing set for an extra charge to hear a little historical information about the individual figures. Unfortunately we were through with the tour relatively quickly. I had expected a lot more figures. But still worth seeing.

the wax museum is highly recommended. it is centrally located in the middle of the reeperbahn and is therefore easy to reach. the cabinet is very neat and clear. not only historical, cultural and political figures have been recreated, but there are also genuine Hamburgers among them. we liked that very much.
