Love trains? Visit Bochum’s Eisenbahnmuseum. It houses Germany’s largest private railway collection. Which means there are 120 vehicles representing the history of locomotives from the 1800s to today.
Ever wonder what these historical trains have been through? A new exhibit answers just that question. Look at the history of train travel through the “eyes” of just one train. The 3rd Reich built this car in the 1930s. Then American generals touring occupied Germany traveled on it. German politicians held campaign tours throughout the country from it. It also had the honor of including national and international leaders as its passengers. And today it is on display for museum visitors.
Bochum’s Eisenbahnmuseum is open seasonally from March – November.
Please visit the website for more information on specific dates, admission prices, and hours of operations. While there take a moment to check out details for one of their events. Families will especially enjoy Children’s Day and Locomotive Day.
