Spanning over 6,000 m², our exhibition tells the story of motorhoming from the traveller’s perspective. What is it that draws us out into the world? Where do we want to travel when freed of the fetters of fixed accommodation? The greatest routes of all time leading to the places you’ve always dreamt of visiting are flanked by a delightful parade of over 80 vintage cars and historical leisure vehicles from all over the world. Most of the vehicles, either lovingly restored or in their original condition, are well-travelled, authentic and tell us a great deal about the adventures they’ve been on, as well as the people who have enjoyed travelling in them. Take a trip down memory lane and prepare to be amazed. Follow the greatest routes the world has to offer on your tour of our exhibition: from the Alps, via Bella Italia, along the Hippie Trail to India, to the Baltic Sea, the desert, the vast continent of North America, the northern lights, the tempestuous Atlantic Ocean, and into the future. Experience more than one hundred years of travelling history, learn about the cultural history of what is arguably the most pleasant form of holidaymaking with our interactive installations, feel the desire to get away from it all and go on an adventure, find out fascinating facts about production, technology and design at our “Developer Stations” – from the past, to the present and cast a look ahead to the visions of future mobility.
The interactive exhibition is constantly being updated with new exhibits and different displays showcasing the cultural history and technical traditions. Discover your own “Planet of the Future” using the Future Radar on our Future Route. The “Panorama of the Future” sheds light on the issues currently being looked into by young pioneers at universities and development agencies.
From the young to the young at heart, we have just the right museum tour for everyone to enjoy.
When your visit is over, venture out into the world in the perfect mood for a holiday and then return for another visit! You’ll experience and discover something new about motorhoming every time you visit our exhibition!

It’s not just the exhibits themselves that change, but the technical equipment as well. The lighting, for example, has been converted to a new, environmentally-friendly and pioneering technology. By modernising all of the exhibition lighting and converting to LED technology, greenhouse emissions are being saved and costs reduced in the long term. The installation of the new lighting has been funded by the National Climate Initiative of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment (BMUB).
Since 2008, the National Climate Initiative of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment has been supporting numerous projects that contribute towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The programmes and projects cover a wide range of climate protection activities: from the development of long-term strategies through to practical help and financial investments. This diversity guarantees good ideas. The National Climate Initiative helps to ensure that climate protection takes root at the local level. Consumers benefit from it just as much as companies, communities and educational institutions.
