Straßenbahnmuseum Chemnitz

Short facts

The best address for all tram fans: in the old carriage hall of the former tram depot you can experience history up close in today's tram museum.

Zwickauer Straße in Chemnitz is practically THE industrial route of the city: here you can experience the history, present and future of industry as if strung together on a chain. The Chemnitz Tram Museum is a particularly authentic place and a must-see for all tram fans. The old track layout is reminiscent of the era of the Chemnitz narrow-gauge tram. In a carriage hall dating from 1908, you will find relics from a bygone era and, typical of Chemnitz's doings, you can touch many things and try them out for yourself. Find out how a tram "works" and try out for yourself how to operate a master controller or how to use a pay box.

At the annual summer festival in the tram museum, the historic trams are in operation and invite you to take a ride.

The former tram depot is definitely a site worth coming back to several times, because a lot will develop here in the next few years. It is an intervention area of the Capital of Culture bid and will be redesigned and developed into a European cultural campus by 2025.
