DB Museum DB Museum No Data


In 1835 the first train ran from Nuremberg to Fürth, using a locomotive built by George and Robert Stephenson in Newcastle upon Tyne. Naturally as the birthplace of the railway age in the country Deutscher Bahn have a museum in the town centre dedicated to the history of the railway from that first journey through to the high speed trains of today. There are exhibits on how the railways were built and the different uses of rail travel over time, including an honest depiction of what the railways were used for by the Nazi's. Exhibitions continue on how the railway was split between East and West Germany and then how it was brough back together again following the fall of the wall. There are also exhibits on the iconography of DB as well as lots of models. On the opposite site of the road in a former sidings yard there are further full scale exhibits of former trains and engines.
