  • With much effort and little budget maintain very neatly a place to visit if one is in Cologne. The entrance is very cheap.

  • Is a simple, small museum, without many attractions, just a train car converted into a restaurant.

  • Restaurant located in a few old vagones-comedor within the museum itself, is very appealing, first for its position, which evokes the great voyages by train and its Charter, but short is brilliantly executed and the service is friendly and efficient. Really highly recommended.
