5 museums that I would like to visit

On my travels through Germany I often see signs to museums and places of interest that I would like to visit, but due to time constraints do not actually get round to straight away.

One day rather than driving by I would like to go back and visit these places.

Here are 5 of the more unusual ones that spring to mind:

The Unimog Museum

A musuem about a particular type of 4-wheel-drive vehicle that is known for its off-road qualities.  I first saw one of these vehicles on a camp site near Koblenz and saw the museum from a traffic jam whilst travelling through the black forest.


The Bauspar-Museum

A museum about saving money to buy or build a home.  I see the sign to it at least once a year, but I never seem to be there on a Sunday or public holiday when it is open.  It is located in Wüstenrot, home to one of Germany’s largest mortgage lenders. [Read more…]
