More Museums in Germay 2018

Sinsheim & Speyer Auto & Technik Museums Germany

They are located just SE and SW of Heidelberg, with Hockenheim Circuit in between them. Hockenheim also has a motor museum but its only open from spring to autumn. If you are in the area take a day out at least to look around the big museums here.

Having moved up from Stuttgart we arrived at Sinsheim Auto & Technik Museum, with Concorde and the Russian equivalent Tupolev perched on the museums roof!!! If Mercedes and Porsche had been minimalist Sinsheim and later Speyer were full on BIG BOYS TOYS. In UK you might go to Donnington for grand prix cars, Bovington for tanks, Hendon for planes, York for trains etc… here it was all under 4 roofs. As someone said it made Beaulieu Motor Museum look like a corner shop. Trying to even explain what was there is impossible so check out their website and the photos below

Moving on to Speyer Auto & Technik 20 miles up the road. Again even more bigger BIG BOYS TOYS.
In one day you can be on the flight deck of a Jumbo jet, on the wing of a Jumbo, in a Russian Antanov, in a the cargo  area of a Russian space shuttle, inside a U boat……..

Two museums the like of which you will not see in the UK. Both have hotels on site, Bundesliga 1899 Hoffenheim ground is right next door to Sinsheim. Try a big boys toys weekend away!!!

Unbelievable, trip I dont think I will ever recover...

Great find, Chris! Awesome, in fact! bom

Can't see your own photos where I am currently but the museum website is mouth-watering enough! Will try to see your own photos over the weekend.

Thinking of which, do you need help with decals for an ice cream? A Magnum, wasn't it? scratch lol!

Cheers, Steve
