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.

  • A really big museum with a mix of indoor and outdoor exhibits. Lots of interesting background history to accompany the transport. Well worth a visit.

  • It's a decent place but non German people would not really enjoy a lot as most of the text in the museum is in German. We did enjoy the trains and the real steam engines in the museum. But our experience would have been far more enhanced if we could have read things.
  • Absolutely great. Even though we don't speak German we found a lot interesting things in it. Lovely old machinery and many activities for kids. Worth every penny
