At the TBE Traditions- und Begegnungsstätte der Eisenbahner (traditional establishment and meeting place of railway workers), fans of Ostalgie (nostalgia for aspects of life in East Germany) and railway aficionados get their money’s worth. The interior is reminiscent of the Mitropa (the catering company that managed the sleeping and dining cars) during the era of the German Reichsbahn.  You can either ride in first or second class. A rough yet cheerful tone, which is meant to reflect how people interacted at Mitropa during GDR times, prevails. Since 5 December 1998, many artefacts from the GDR and the Reichsbahn have been collected. In this way, the TBE has turned into a small museum that is perfect for browsing. Once a month, the TBE hosts cabaret shows. Have we made you curious? Then climb aboard soon and experience a different kind of train ride that you won’t forget anytime soon! “Train tickets” can be booked at +49 (0) 341 6510082 or  Enjoy your journey and stop by soon!
