The Panoptikum is the oldest wax museum in Germany, looking back on more than 130 years of history displaying historical wax figures, artists and politicians, waxworks of celebrities and megastars as well as athletes and popular contemporaries. Visit St. Pauli and come face to face with some reallife, well, almost real-life characters. In total there are over 120 wax ’inhabitants’ exhibited at the Panoptikum.
