Hessen's largest railway museum has been located in the former Kranichstein railway depot since 1970. Find out interesting facts about our more than 200 historic vehicles and the numerous other exhibitions on the fascination of the railway.
We, the Bahnwelt Darmstadt-Kranichstein, are the umbrella organisation of railway clubs in Darmstadt with the aim of preserving and presenting the history of the railway in the Darmstadt area and making it an experience for future generations.
Hold your family or company celebration in a unique ambience between old steam engines weighing tons. Or are you looking for a special location for your photo shooting? With us you are guaranteed to find the right setting.
Due to the Corona pandemic, we have adjusted our admission fee and opening/guided tour times. Tickets must currently be booked in advance. In addition, certain hygiene regulations apply in the museum.
All important information on the currently valid regulations can be found at “Opening hours & admission fee”.
For more than a year, three professional photographers captured the exhibits of the railway museum in pictures. The result is a calendar with 12 unique scenes and detailed photos of the historic locomotives.During their photo sessions, the photographers were particularly impressed by the museum’s youth work. Therefore, the profits from the sale of the calendar will benefit it! Thus, with the purchase of the calendar, you support the projects of the young people.
