DB Museum, Nuremberg

(400+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
DB Museum explores the history of the railway and its significance to Germany--and offers an up-close look at the oldest surviving steam train in Germany and the royal carriage of Bavarian King Ludwig II. Learn about the construction of the German railway; the living conditions of those who worked on it; and how developments in technology, business, and politics have shaped the rail industry. Don't miss the Railroad in Miniature exhibit, where you can observe how railways operate on more than 500 m (1,640 ft) of track and 30 different detailed trains. Most of the information is written in German, so pick up an English audio guide if you can't read the local language. Use our Nuremberg family vacation planner to arrange your visit to DB Museum and other attractions in Nuremberg.

  • Well worth a visit, lots in display. Make sure you visit both sides as there is an outdoor area with lots more exhibits through a door and across a road from the main building.
  • If you like trains and train travel then this place is a must see. Labels are in German but audio guides in English are available for 1 euro. The museum is normally close on Mondays but is open during the Christmas market season.
  • Huge exhibit with lots to see. Nice play area for the kids upstairs.
  • My son (2 years old) loved it!
  • If you like trains you have to see this place, you can spend here whole day.
