Transport Museum depot open days in September
Berlin's Transport Museum has a large depot of historical public transport vehicles and oldtimer cars which isn't usually open to the public. However, every year on each Sunday in September the doors are thrown open to every one - and entrance is free!
Highlights include old S-Bahn and U-Bahn trains, various historical buses, and even a car used by former East German leader Erich Honecker while hunting. There's a free bus shuttle service between the depot and the transport museum itself, provided using working vintage buses. There will also be a train shuttling between the two locations, but you will need an entrance ticket for the Transport Museum in order to be able to use this.
The depot will be open on September 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th between 10am and 6pm. The address is Monumentenstraße 15, 10965 Berlin; nearest station is Yorckstraße, buses 140 and 104 stop nearby.
