Germany, Hannover - Hannover Tramway Museum

Hanover, Germany - The Museum comprises the only nationwide collection of tramcars in Germany, located on the site of a former potash mine in Sehnde-Wehmingen, southeast of Hanover.

About fifty trams are on display in the exhibition hall and a provisional carbarn, representing German trams from horsetram to the sixties. Additional elements like pantographs show special aspects of tramway history.

Exibition Hall Inside a former administration building we are arranging small exhibitions of tramway technics and tramway systems of Hannover and Brunswick. The photo shows the interior of a former underground interlocking, now part of our exhibition.

In a small cinema we present old tram films mostly black and white. In another room you can drive a Berlin tram yourself with a tram simulator turning a genuine old controller.

On opening days at least one tram is in service over a 2.5 km distance. Our trams depart every 20 minutes with additional cars during rush hours. One tram ride is free if you hold a valid entrance ticket.

On the museum site there are about 4 km standard gauge tracks which we already electrified. Over the next years we will amend more tracks to create a loop for single ended tramcars.
