SUHL, Germany (Reuters) - Buried in the forests of Thuringia lies a Cold War bunker offering guests an experience they won't soon forget: a spartan night as a soldier in the former communist East Germany's People's Army.
Don't expect mini-bars, spa services and a warm welcome from staff.
Guests are handed People's Army trousers, jackets, belts, caps and a gas mask while a man in a major's uniform barks orders to march through the fir trees with luggage and find the bunker.
