What's the show about?

Discover the world of Babylon Berlin
The set of our new Babylon Berlin area was modelled on various locations from the show where the main characters celebrate the extravagant nightlife : The "Moka Efti" e.g. is regularly seen in the show as a venue for wild, dazzling parties and impressively conveys the attitude to life of the dazzling nightlife of the Roaring Twenties.
The real "Moka Efti" opened in 1926 and was Berlin's most successful café by day, while by night it became the city's most popular dance hall. But the 2,800 m also housed other shops such as a hairdressing salon or a fish restaurant.
Because of its success, another Moka Efti was opened at the Tiergarten in 1933. There, visitors were transported to a completely new world, as the club was also furnished with waterfalls and exotic birds. Extravagance on a new nivaeu!
Both venues were eventually destroyed in an air raid in 1943 and never rebuilt.
The Babylon Berlin bar and its interactive sets were designed in close cooperation with our Madame Tussauds Creative Team and X Filme Creative Pool.
For their wax figures, Liv Lisa Fries alias Charlotte Ritter, Volker Bruch alias Gereon Rath and Meret Becker alias Esther Kasabian were measured in autumn 2022 in a 4-hour "sitting" and elaborately photographed from all angles. Hundreds of measurements were taken by hand, a full-body scan was made and over 400 photos were taken. Based on all the collected data three lifelike wax figures have been created - the originals approved!
