    Located directly at the highway and highly visible already from a distance: this is the car and technology museum in Sinsheim. See the topic "technics" in a new fashion: fascinating and entertaining.

    Cars, motorbikes, airplanes, locomotives, Europe's largest exhibition of Formula 1 vehicles - this and way more is being presented for the visitors of the car and technology museum. In the outdoor area - already visible from a large distance while running on the highway - there are spectacular things: both an Original Air France Concorde airplane and a Russian (resp. soviet) Tupolev TU-144 (which is optically very similar to the Concorde) can be walked in. Technical's history becomes alive here.

    There are cars from the beginning of motorization (amongst others one can see an Original Replica of the "Motorwagen" by Carl Benz, which is considered the first motorcar worldwide) up to the modern ages, motorbikes of any age (very old as well as brand-new), steam-, diesel- and electrical locomotives, a huge exhibition of sportive cars (Porsche, Ferrari, Mercedes etc.), the "Blue Flame" which is one of the fastest land crafts ever (with a speed of more than 1,000 km/h), a large exhibition of military history, mechanical music instruments and a way more.

    One highlight after the other: a DeLorean DMC-12 (known as "Time Machine" in "Back to the Future), and alongside Europe's largest exhibition of Formula 1 vehicles which e. g. Jodie Scheckter's Tyrrell P34 with 3 axes from 1976 (better known as "six-wheeler") or the "silver arrow" (Mercedes Benz) which became Mika Häkkinnen world champion with.

    There are extraordinary exhibitions, such as an airplane that is "driven" by "pneumatic muscles" or the first robot shop worldwide. An industrial robot "serves" the visitors by taking goods from the shelf and putting it on the "counter".

    More than 300 vintage cars from all ages are to be viewed constantly.

    The IMAX 3D-theater offers a special experience which a "normal" cinema never can: The screen is as high as a five-storied house. The plain is nearly 600 square meters. The IMAX format is 10 times larger than the normal cinema format. The 22,000 watt sound equipment brings you to strange worlds, deep seas, and you will have many adventures as if you were inside the movie.

    Things to do close by!

    Sightseeing

    Approximately 20 km from Sinsheim one finds the little village Dilsberg, which is a district of the town Neckargemünd. The post did develop from the fortress Dilsberg, which was built during the high middle ages (existing at least since the year of 1208). From the fortress, one has an astonishing view over the Neckar valley.

    Other

    In striking distance to the car and technical museum (10 minutes to walk) there is the "Rhein-Neckar-Arena" which is the stadium for the home matches of the german Bundesliga soccer club TSG 1899 Hoffenheim. During the weekends one can see Bundesliga soccer here, but during the week it's possible to book a guided tour through the arena.

    Shopping

    Heidelberg is just approximately 25 km away from Sinsheim. In the nearly 2 km long pedestrian area between the Bismarckplatz and the Karlsplatz there are numerous shops as well as two department stores inviting you for a shopping tour. There are several restaurants, bistros and cafés as well - the perfect places for a short break.
