Feldbahn museum

Last Saturday the Feldbahn Museum in Wiesloch had opened their doors to little children and also their parents. The Feldbahn is a locomotive that was used during the first world war, mainly used to transport agricultural and industrial goods.

 All of us got to actually take a ride in one of these trench railways. There was also a guided tour for the little ones taking them into a nearby mine and how the the Feldbahn or the trench railways were used to transport the materials from these mines.

The kids were particularly fascinated to understand how a carbide lamp which was very popular in those times really worked and how it was used for mining purposes.

The children got to take an additional ride on the Feldbahn after the guided tour.

The team from the museum also had a nice bonfire going and it was nice to warm yourself at the end of the tour.
