The Time-travelling with Grandpa Adler exhibition is an interactive, hands-on experience that brings to life the story of the Adler, the locomotive that ran Germany's first passenger train service. Grandpa Adler's historic journey in 1835 heralded the beginning of the railway age in Germany. Since then, he has had many adventures, which he shares with his friends from the "little ICE" family.
Children from the age of three can experience the history of the railway in an entertaining way at various hands-on play and listening stations. Fun is guaranteed!
Say hello to the little ICE, Ida IC, Benni Bus, Simsala Sum, Günni Güterzug the goods train, Robbi Regio and Nick Nachtzug the night train. Visit the hands-on activity areas to discover what the trains are up to these days.
An almost life-size Grandpa Adler welcomes children to the museum. For an extra cool selfie, you can even change his facial expressions.
Visit the eight colourful listening stations to hear Grandpa Adler's stories all about the world of railways.
The exhibition features wooden game pieces and is suitable for children aged 3 and above.
