About

This is a charming museum occupying the ground floor of one of Europe’s first purpose-built car parks, dating from the 1920s.

The museum focusses on the rich heritage of motor manufacturing in Saxony. There are cars and bikes of all types, many of which are never seen in the more popular classic events.

From ancient pushbikes, to tiny motorcycle and sidecar combinations and racing DKW cars, the displays are all interesting and in many cases surprising.

It’s well worth the €5 entry fee per person, although there are no translations of the display information for non-German speakers. If you’re lucky (as we were), you’ll meet the curator, Dirk, who speaks fluent English and has great passion for the subject matter.

There is plenty of free parking outside the museum (the building also houses a retail furniture store) on flat, hard standing in a fenced compound.
