Coal wagon

Coal wagon

Let's start with a huge, black coal wagon. It is the oldest vehicle in the DB Museum and comes from England - the birthplace of the railroad. Here you can find out how the invention that decisively changed people's lives came about.

Wagon No. 8

Wagon No. 8

From England, you will travel to the old trading and industrial city of Nuremberg, where Germany's first public railroad line was opened on December 7, 1835. On display is an original passenger car from the famous Ludwigseisenbahn. Discover together the differences to today's passenger cars!

The tour continues with route network maps on which everyone can press a button once: With the help of these interactive maps, you can find out how rapidly the rail network grew after the opening of the first line between Nuremberg and Fürth.

Adler

Time to marvel! In the Vehicle Hall I, a replica of Germany's most famous steam locomotive awaits you: the Adler. Right next to it, you can admire a full-size model of the fastest train in Germany, the ICE 3.

Nordgau

Nordgau

A steam locomotive snorts and whistles. But why actually? You can find out this and much more at the Nordgau locomotive. Germany's oldest preserved original locomotive shows its inner workings and how it functions by means of a controllable light installation.

S 2/6

S 2/6

You should not miss the impressive express locomotive S 2/6. In 1907, it set a German record with a speed of over 154 kilometers per hour. With us, you have the opportunity to enter the driver's cab of this huge locomotive and slip into the roles of the engineer and the stoker.

Salon wagon

The tour continues to a castle on wheels: Two state coaches from the court train of the Bavarian fairy-tale king Ludwig II show how luxuriously a monarch traveled in those days. Among all the pomp and circumstance, many a curiosity can be discovered - such as the royal lavatory with upholstered seat for the utmost comfort.
