    This museum offers a post-war experience through the famous Currywurst dish. Here you can take pictures of life-size sausages and with an 11 EUR entry fee you will be granted entry to the whole museum. The museum is dedicated to this traditional fast-food dish which is a symbol of post-war Berlin. It all began in 1949 when Berliner Herta Heuwer obtained Ketchup and curry sauce from British soldiers and decided to mix ketchup and curry sauce with other ingredients to be served with a sausage.

  • Abode of Chaos, France
    Abode of Chaos, France

    This outdoor attraction hosts a courtyard full of larger-than-life skulls, a crashed helicopter and other permanent installations that explore controversial themes like terrorism and war. There is no entry free and the former businessman turned artist, Thierry Ehrmann, conceptualized a complex work of contemporary art right in the backyard of his old stone home. The display has been described as eerie and dark but its works of art are all in conversation with aspects of terrorism, war, and destruction (as seen in the model of the rubble symbolizing the destruction of the World Trade Centre).
