Opening hours & admission fee

Opening hours & admission fee

On regular opening days, visiting our vehicle collection is only possible by a guided tour of approx. 1 to 1.5 hours.

Our staff will explain many interesting facts about our museum and the vehicles on display during the tour and are happy to answer your questions. The start of the tour is determined flexibly depending on the number of visitors, but it usually begins on the hour or half hour.

As the vehicles in operation are being maintained on the exhibition grounds at the same time, we are afraid it is necessary for an accompanist from our staff members. We also recommend that you wear sturdy shoes without high heels.
