The moment of truth has come. There is finally a David Hasselhoff Museum in Berlin. Thanks to our wonderful barkeeper Ally, who has taken a particular (yet frightening) interest in David Hasselhoff, there is now a museum in the basement of the hostel by the bar.
The museum includes a mural of The Hoff himself (with an obscene amount of real-looking chest hair), photos, Baywatch and Nightcrawler paraphernalia, and info on his 1989 performance on the Berlin Wall.
Tonight at 8pm we are having a small little Vernissage for the museum opening. There will be the inaugural ribbon-cutting ceremony and miscellaneous fanfare as we pay homage to arguably Germany’s most famous non-German.
We have also started a campaign to rename Weinbergsweg, where our hostel is located, to David-Hasselhoff-Straße. Madness, I know. But the man’s contribution has to be recognised somehow. For more details see the campaign’s Facebook page.
Check out some pictures of the work in progress and the end results and be sure to pop by and have a look – it is indeed a sight for sore eyes.
