The road traffic division comprises one of the most comprehensive and diverse collections at the German Museum of Technology. More that 200 cars and trucks, around 250 motorcycles and over 300 bicycles are included in our inventory, which is kept in the depots.

A selection is on display at our permanent exhibition. Visitors are able to admire the high-wheel bicycle, luxury cars, horse-drawn carriages and world record holding race cars displayed in the 1,400 sq. metre exhibition space in the restored loading sheds of the former Anhalter freight station.

The exhibition "Man on the move - underway with Auto & Co" presents innovative and unusual exemplars. In addition to an assortment of carriages, bicycles and motorcycles there are 30 cars on display: from the excitingly styled Colani GT (1951) all the way to the streamlined Saab 92A (1951).

Special emphasis in the exhibition is given to electric vehicles. They serve to open the floor to the currently relevant question about whether the monopoly of the combustion engine will soon come to an end.

Finally, artist Charlotte Sonntag’s large-format photographs provide an additional perspective to the topic of mobility. These atmospheric night scenes illustrate the tempo and vitality that road traffic infuses into the otherwise static nature of the built urban environment.


The restoration of the two loading sheds is friendly sponsored by:
