German Museum of Technology

The German Museum of Technology provides varied and fascinating insights into the history of technology and industry. The permanent exhibition has grown to 16 departments on an exhibition space of more than 26.500 qm, which illuminate the cultural history of transport, communication, manufacturing and energy technologies.

The museum is situated on the historic site of the former Anhalter Station and Carl Linde’s Gesellschaft für Markt- und Kühlhallen (Market hall and refrigerated warehouse company). An extensive park with the museum’s engine sheds, windmills and brewery offers a green oasis of calm amidst the hustle and bustle of the city.
