Nürnberg, Germany - DB Museum - The Leading Railway Museum in Germany

In the DB Museum in Nuremberg, there’s something for everyone to discover. The historical exhibits, from the Royal saloon car to a promotional phonographic record, have lots of exciting stories to tell about the railway.

The Deutsche Bahn Museum is located in the city of departure of the first railway journey in Germany. Since the rail reform, Nuremberg has been home to the corporate museum, where visitors can admire rail vehicles and also learn about the political and cultural history of the railway in Germany. The museum also offers frequently changing attractions for children.

The DB Museum is the successor to the former Museum of Transport in Nuremberg. In 1996, Deutsche Bahn AG took over the museum's railway department as its corporate museum and has redesigned many sections since then. The main attraction at the DB Museum are its numerous original vehicles. Highlights of the collection include the saloon cars of King Ludwig II of Bavaria and of Imperial Chancellor Otto von Bismarck, as well as a passenger carriage used by Ludwigseisenbahn, the first German railway which ran between Nurember and Fürth.
