Holidays in the GDR – Photo Collection

Holidays in the GDR looked more diverse than one might think. Even if travelling to “western” countries was not possible, the German Democratic Republic and countries like Bulgaria or Hungary offered many recreational opportunities.

Whether it was a holiday at the Baltic Sea, for example at the beach of Warnemünde, at the lakes of the Mecklenburg Lake District or around Brandenburg and Berlin, but also in the many beach resorts of the republic, actually everyone got his money’s worth. Not to forget the trips to Thuringia (Thuringian Forest), to the Erzgebirge or to Saxony in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains. There was something for everyone.

On the topic “Holidays in the GDR” we have put together a series of unique recordings for you.
