MEMBERS ONLY: WORLD OF TRAMS MUSEUM

IWCS members are invited to join host Alison Tyler for an English-language tour of the Strassenbahn Museum in July!

In this multifaceted exhibition in a large 2,500 square meters, our tour guide will show us the highlights of Stuttgart’s tram history. Marvel at the first horse-drawn tram from 1868 and experience the development of the vehicles up to the “Stuttgart classic” GT4, which was replaced in 2007 by today’s light rail. Detailed themed islands take up individual aspects from operation and technology and present them particularly vividly. A separate exhibition deals with the development of the buses.

We will meet at 12:45 on Sunday, July 26th at the payment point near the main entrance to pick up our tickets and our tour will start promptly at 13:00. The English-language tour will be 60-90 minutes long and afterwards we will have the option to ride the Old Timer Line #23 as a round trip.

This event is for members only plus spouse or partner, up to 10 people (including host). The cost of this event is €5 per person, paid in advance. The tour guide will be sponsored by the IWCS and this is a Round Up For Charity event. All proceeds will benefit Frauen helfen Frauen.

If you would like to ride the optional Old Timer tram afterwards, it will cost an additional €9 per person round trip, paid at the museum.
