  • I loved this museum. The history of the railways traces the recent history of Germany. You can admire carriages, locomotives, uniforms and artifacts of all kinds. There is also a large plastic operated by DB staff. In short, it is a beautiful museum, unmissable for train enthusiasts but also interesting for everyone.
