Operating day at the Railway Museum

Fulfil a childhood dream and take a driver’s cab ride on one of our steam or diesel locomotives through our museum grounds. You can literally “experience” how stokers and engine drivers work in the well-heated cab of a steam locomotive or how the diesel engine driver tames his horsepower. Our staff will be happy to show and explain how to operate such locomotives. It’s not just the children who get shining eyes. An unforgettable experience!

The museum is open from 10 am to 4 pm. Guided tours of our vehicle collection (duration approx. 1.5 hours) take place at half-hourly to hourly intervals (depending on capacity) and can be followed by a driver’s cab ride (extra ticket € 3.00 per person).

Please note:

However, due to the cramped conditions in the driver’s cab, we cannot guarantee the distance rules that are currently still necessary because of Corona. Therefore, the cab rides cannot be offered at the moment.

Whether the next scheduled day of operation will be carried out depends on the regulations in force at that time. You will find out about 14 days in advance on our website whether the next scheduled operating day can take place.
