Bike Touring Highlight
Industrial Heritage at an Historic Rail Yard: Overgrown train tracks and platforms, two roundhouses, and a freight depot that once belonged to the Anhalter Bahnhof freight yard testify to the museum grounds’ important role in transportation history. Inside the Deutsches Technikmuseum (German Museum of Technology) a detailed model shows just how large the historic railway area was, stretching from the Anhalter Bahnhof station (see Anhalter Bahnhof Portico) to the Yorck bridges. Various permanent and special exhibitions provide insight into the variegated spectrum of old and new technology and its relationship to cultural history and everyday life. The museum grounds feature the ruins of railway buildings and an historic brewery. A path at the freight depot lit by LED lights demonstrates the advantages of innovative LED illumination.
