Highlights of the main exhibition

Our tip for the guests of the main exhibition! You should definitely take a look at the exhibits listed here and don't miss them!
 

Room 1: BENZ PATENT MOTORWAGEN NO. 4,
TYP VICTORIA (1894)

show

The motor vehicle, which remains operational to this day, is the only one of its kind in original, unrestored condition. The Victoria, chassis number 99, has been through a lot over the years: It looks like a horse-drawn carriage, but as the first vehicle of its type to feature Ackermann steering, is the first four-wheeled motor vehicle that can truly be called a car.
By the way: The 125-year-old vehicle was legally approved for use on the roads in 11th April 2019.

Room 2: MEGOLA SPORTMODELL (1922)

show

Built in Munich and named after its inventors, Meixner, Gockerell and Landgraf, the Megola is probably one of the most unusual serial motorbikes in the world, thanks to its rotary engine, which rotates in the opposite direction to the wheels.

Room 2: HANOMAG DRIVING SIMULATOR (1925)

show

Climb into the Hanomag, also known as the “army loaf”, and navigate through the traffic of the 1920s. Not so easy. But incredible fun!

Room 3: BMW R 5 (1936)

show

The British called this bike “the Rolls Royce of motorcycles”. With its lightweight frame, telescopic fork and typical BMW boxer engine, the R 5 was years ahead of the competition, both technically and aesthetically.

Room 4: HOFFMANN VESPA (1954)

show

This Vespa, produced under licence, is a classic and the symbol of remotorisation after the Second World War. It was initially built in the form of small, but all the more colourful and varied two-, three- and four-wheeled vehicles.

Room 6: VW T1 LUXUSBUS (1964)

show

The VW “Samba” is the luxury variant of the legendary VW T1 camper van series, and was designed to transport small groups of travellers. An eye-catching features is the glazed skylights, from which the bus gets its nickname, “Samba”. They are reminiscent of the similarly designed cars of the German Federal Railway, in which passengers danced the samba. The name embodies the renewed enjoyment of life and travel that prevailed during this era.

Room 7: MÜNCH 4 TTS-E 1200 (1970)

show

This powerhouse on wheels is more a status symbol than a means of transport, more than any other German motorcycle. Friedel Münch and his team individually produced only 400 units until 1976. The Münch “Mammoth” is legendary.

Room 7: MBS 656 (2002)

show

Not to toot our own horns, but... Only eight units were built of the “best sports bike in the world”, according to one newspaper, in Stroit, Einbeck, of all places. The exhibit was donated by the FörderFreunden PS.SPEICHER e.V. in 2015.

Room 7: DeLorean DMC 12 (1985)

show

“Back to the future!” – the famous movie trilogy featuring Marty McFly and Dr. Emmett Lathrop “Doc” Brown made the DeLorean DMC 12 a film icon. Even the history behind the DMC 12 is fit for Hollywood!
