Industry and Craftsmanship Museums

Craftsmanship has a longstanding tradition in Bavaria; you can admire the skills and work of blacksmiths, carvers, and tailors in the local museums. Industrial facilities such as the Glaskathedrale Amberg (Glass Cathedral Amberg), the last building designed by Walter Gropius, or the historic brine pipeline from Bad Reichenhall to Traunstein also make for exciting tourist attractions.

Full Steam Ahead: Railway Museums in Bavaria

All aboard! Railway fans can have their tickets ready for a variety of railway traffic: from modern ICE trains to historic trams and steam locomotives. One highlight is the Deutsche Dampflokomotiv Museum (German Steam Locomotive Museum) (external link, opens in a new window) in Neuenmarkt in Upper Franconia. It is located in a former depot of the Neuenmarkt-Wirsberg station at the foot of Europe's first steep railway line, the "Schiefe Ebene." Here you can also see the famous saloon dining car 10 242 from 1937, which accompanied important personalities such as the chancellors Konrad Adenauer and Willy Brandt, as well as Queen Elizabeth II, on their journeys. Further recommendations are the DB Museum Nürnberg (DB Museum Nuremberg) (external link, opens in a new window), the Deutsches Museum Verkehrszentrum (German Museum Traffic Centre) (external link, opens in a new window) in Munich, or the Lokwelt Freilassing (external link, opens in a new window).
