Amusement park for men

On a muddy field near the East German village Schoenfelde a dozen of tanks disturb the pastoral silence. A bunch of former East German army officers have set up a ‘tank driving school’. It started as a hobby, but by now, they are open around the year. For 136 Euros anyone can drive a tank through the mud. An ideal amusement park for men! Forty percent of the visitors are women though.

Paris Strange places

In 'Le Musée de Contrefaçon', (the museum of counterfeits) you can find an extensive collection of counterfeited goods that were seized by the French police and customs. The collection ranges from imitation Dior and Louis Vuitton bags and barbie dolls to copied rearview mirrors for Peugeots.
