The historic Schöneweide railway depot opens its doors and celebrates its traditional steamy spring festival with railway fans big and small and their families

The Dampflokfreunde Berlin e.V. is showing more than 30 locomotives and cars, including steam locomotives from the 50, 52 and 74 series. There are also modern diesel and electric locomotives.

The water tower from 1906 is in a renovated state, and plans for the renovation of other buildings and facilities at the railway depot from 1906 have taken shape and are clearly presented.

A steam train with historic carriages sets off directly from the festival grounds for one-and-a-half-hour tours through Berlin. Tickets for the city tours cost 20 euros, reduced prices 10 euros

Railway you can touch

Those interested can also take the place of the locomotive driver and look at locomotive boilers or the huge engines of modern locomotives. If you prefer to watch, you can take a ride in the driver's cab of a diesel or steam locomotive.

On a tour of the large locomotive shed, visitors learn everything about the locomotive workshop from grandfather's time. Currently you can see, among other things, the refurbishment of an express train car from 1937 and the repair of a steam locomotive that has not been under steam for over thirty years.

A field railway runs through the area for children - the bouncy castle invites you to let off steam. In the historic dining car and in front of it there is home cooking and delicacies from the grill and from the goulash cannon.
