Railway Museum Leipzig
Experience railway history in the trade fair city of Leipzig, a city with a rich railway heritage...For example, the first German long-distance railway line was opened in 1839, and the biggest terminal station in Europe was inaugurated in 1915. Since 1989, friends of the "Verein Eisenbahnmuseum Bayerischer Bahnhof zu Leipzig e.V." (Bayerischer station railway museum association in Leipzig) have been committed to preserving numerous artifacts of railway history. The engine shed of the former locomotive depot in Leipzig-Plagwitz houses the railway museum containing several vehicles and exhibitions. In addition, the association has organized special train rides in the surroundings of Leipzig and to various destinations in Saxony.
The museum has no fixed opening hours. Please call to make a reservation for a visit or a guided tour of our museum.
