DB Museum (German Railway Museum) explores the history of the railway and its significance to Germany--and offers an up-close look at the oldest surviving steam train in Germany and the royal carriage of Bavarian King Ludwig II. Learn about the construction of the German railway; the living conditions of those who worked on it; and how developments in technology, business, and politics have shaped the rail industry. Don't miss the Railroad in Miniature exhibit, where you can observe how railways operate on more than 500 m (1,640 ft) of track and 30 different detailed trains. Most of the information is written in German, so pick up an English audio guide if you can't read the local language.
