Exclamation Deutsches Museum - Flugwerft Schleissheim

Germany

The Museum is open daily from 9:00 to 17:00.
Closed on German Holidays – check their website for more info.




Flugwerft Schleißheim is literally a twenty minute drive from BMW’s Welt and Museum. It is a really cool aviation museum – perfect to see while on ED (European Delivery). But it is not so big like some museums in the USA (like the Smithsonian in DC). Schleißheim (Schleissheim) is still a worth while side trip – to anyone who is in the Munich area. IF you drive up the B13 bundesstrasse it is pretty much a straight drive up to the Oberschleißheim and the museum grounds.

Flugwerft Schleißheim is located in a residential area and there is also a Schloß (Residence) next door to the museum. You would never know the museum was there though. Just a few small signs pointing the way. Even once you pull into the grounds… it is more of a forest or park than an aircraft museum. At least not until you get into the museum!



Flugwerft Schleißheim is part of the Deutsches Museums. The Deutsches Museum also has a Verkehrszentrum (traffic car museum) and a Technik Museum in Munich.IF you go to either of those museums – it would be wise to just take the U-bahn bc parking in downtown Munich can be a pain. Both museums are quite close to the center of downtown Munich. IF you only had time to go see one of these fabulous museums – I would say go see the Verkehrszentrum Museum.

Onto my photos…

Enjoy,
Dackel

Just down the street from Oberschleißheim is Dachau concentration camp. Just follow the signs that say: “Dachau KZ”. It looks to me that the Germans would really not have this place around anymore. I don’t remember this wall from the last time I was here.

There is a museum inside and gives you idea of the madness the Nazi’s were up too during the war.

IF you only have time to go to one (out of three) of the Deutsche Musuems… I would suggest to go see the Traffic museum in downtown Munich. It is my favorite one.

From my 1addicts thread on this museum....

Went to Dachau last summer when my father-inlaw visited. That was quit an experience.



Well... FDM68 came thru and sent me a PM about the museum he described above. Here is a link incase anyone would like to visit the museum. Sounds like a cool place. It is quite close to the 'Ring.

Bundesamt für Wehrtechnik und Beschaffung
Ferdinand-Sauerbruch-Straße 1
56073 Koblenz

http://www.bwb.org/portal/a/bwb/kcxm...RS82XzIxX0lSVA!!


Btw.... from a good friend of mine's auto travel (book in the works)...

the museum at Koblenz is high above where the Rhine and Mosel meet... from my book....

Remagen is, of course, important as the birthplace of Caracciola.


Wehrtechnik Museum
Mayener Straße 127. Displays include a fully restored and operational PzKpfw V Panther used to bear the coffin of a Bundeswehr General in 1984, and a Sturmtiger / Tiger-Morser 38cm RW61 mounted on a Sturmmorser Tiger tank.

Landmuseum Koblenz
Festung Ehrenbreitstein. Located in the Ehrenbreitstein fortress high over the Rhine, the collection here includes an example of Otto’s four stroke engine, invented in Cologne. There is also information on August Horch, creator of Horch and Audi cars, who was born in nearby Winningen.
During the 30 Year’s War (1618-1648), Prinz Bartolomeo Caracciolo commanded the Ehrenbreitstein fortress above Koblenz. Later descendents settled in Niederberg, Andernach and Remagen, the name changing from Caracciolo to Caracciola. A descendent, Rudi Caracciola became perhaps the greatest German driver of all time, though it is hard to compare him with Schumacher.

NOTE: the correct address for the Bundeswehr's Military Museum is:

WTS Museum

aka the Bundeswehr’s Military Museum.




WehrTechnische StudienSammlung (WTS)
Mayener Strasse 85-87
