Kranichsteiner Bahnwelttage

After two years, we can finally invite you again to our Railway World Days on the grounds of the Railway Museum Darmstadt-Kranichstein. On Ascension Day (26.05.2022) and the following weekend (28 and 29.05.2022), the Railway Museum will be open with a large additional programme of demonstrations, exhibitions and attractions for young and old on all aspects of the railway. In addition to the exhibitions to be visited, historic vehicles will also be demonstrated in operation and there will be the opportunity to travel on historic museum trains across the extensive grounds of the railway museum. The exact programme details can be found on the German version of this page.

This year, our friends from Alkmaar (Darmstadt’s twin town in the Netherlands) are coming to the museum again with a model layout, and this is already the 15th time they have done so. The theme of their layout this time is the “Museum Stoomtram Hoorn/Medemblik” (Hoorn/Medemblik Museum Steam Tramway). The model shows true-to-life what the line looks like on the section between Opperdoes and Medemblik. Some of the vehicles have also been faithfully reproduced.

We look forward to your visit!

The event will take place on the premises of the Railway Museum Darmstadt-Kranichstein. You can find all important information on how to get there here.

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer feeder services with historic trains from Darmstadt main station this year for capacity reasons. However, we kindly ask you to travel by public transport, as there is only limited parking space available in the vicinity of the railway museum. Thank you very much!
