The German Museum Of Technology In Berlin

Rosinenbomber, Berlin Airlift

The weather’s gotten cold cold cold in Berlin and that means it is time to start loving our indoor attractions! A lesser known museum choice is one that I was surprised to have enjoyed as much as I did.

Don’t be turned off by the entrance to the German Museum of Technology (Deutsches Technikmuseum Berlin), which starts in a shabby older building and has a boring textile display, it’s massive newer annex is stuffed full of planes, trains and automobiles from the beginning of their time.


The incredible detail of the miniature sailing ships were especially impressive and the omnipresent swastikas on bombers a disturbingly relevant reminder of the Nazi era influence on the advancement of German engineering. For a breath of chilly fresh air, go out on the terrace and take in the establishment’s signature piece, the Rosinenbomber from the Berlin Airlift days, which is impressively mounted to the front of the building.

Transportation enthusiasts can easily spend a half day roaming the exhibits, and fanatics can even have a schnitzel for lunch in the restaurant while taking a break from a full day of exploration.The museum is located on Trebbiner Straße 9, and the closest U-Bahn station is Gleisdreieck. Opening hours are Tuesday – Friday, 9am – 5.30pm and Saturday/Sunday/Holidays from 10am – 6pm.
