Fodor's Review

Two museums have been amalgamated under a single roof here: the German Railway Museum and the Museum of Communication—in short, museums about how people stay connected. The first train to run in Germany did so on December 7, 1835, from Nürnberg to nearby Fürth. A model of the epochal train is here, along with a series of original 19th- and early-20th-century trains and stagecoaches. Philatelists will want to check out some of the 40,000-odd stamps in the extensive

exhibits on the German postal system. You can also find out about the history of sending messages—from old coaches to optical fiber networks.
